  3. Pankaj Kumar says:

    Rent a cab services – As per GST Sec 17(5) not allowed/ ineligible for input credit. Now my question is :
    Under earlier Service Tax regime “Rent a cab services” covers all type of motor cab including Bus (that is renting of any motor vehicle) , but in GST regime there is no clarification regarding BUS services with passenger capacity of more than 12 taken by one of the Company to carry their employees from one office premises to Factory premises. Understood that this is used for furtherance of business purpose only.
    When there is no clarification under GST regarding BUS services taken/ hired and also dose not fall under the definition of 17(5) Rent a cab, then Can we take INPUT CREDIT paid on Bus services availed for exclusively for business purpose.

  10. ARPIT G SHAH says:

    IN SECTION 17(5)(a)-Blocked credit, credit of only motor vehicle is blocked, not motor vehicle expenses, so in my opinion gst on motor vehicle expenses like car repairing , insurance etc should be allowed. whether it is correct ?
