In re Siddartha Constructions (GST AAR Andhra Pradesh)

The applicant claims that the works involved in the contract are used for the offices of the Hon’ble Minister for Industries and not for the business interests or transactions of APIIC. The point under discussion is whether the work involved, i.e, providing Power Infrastructure, Fire Fighting & alarm System and street lighting to the proposed RBF shed No’s 1 to 4 at YSR-EMC, Y.S.R. Kadapa District is meant predominantly for use other than for commerce, industry or any other business or profession. The applicant rather emphatically claimed that the work is meant for the use of Minister for Industries, which is essentially meant for promotion of Business and Industry. Moreover, the recipient of the services, APIIC is basically engaged in business activities and even a close observation of the modus operandi of the organisation prove the same. This would be sufficient enough to come to a conclusion that the said construction is for conducting promotional activities, which are essentially business oriented and hence not eligible for concessional rate of 12% ( 6% CGST + 6% SGST) available under Notification No.24/2017 – CT (Rate) dated 21.09.2017.

Hence, the contract entered by the applicant is classifiable under SAC heading No. 9954 under construction services, with entry no (ii) of serial No.3 of notification No. 11/2017 – Central Tax (Rate), dated – 28′h June 2017 i.e., Composite Supply of Works Contract as defined in clause 119 of Section 2 of Central Goods close observation of the modus operandi of the organisation prove the same. This would be sufficient enough to come to a conclusion that the said construction is for conducting promotional activities, which are essentially business oriented and hence not eligible for concessional rate of 12% ( 6% CGST + 6% SGST) available under Notification No.24/2017 – CT (Rate) dated 21.09.2017.

Hence, the contract entered by the applicant is classifiable under SAC heading No. 9954 under construction services, with entry no (ii) of serial No.3 of notification No. 11/2017 – Central Tax (Rate), dated – 28′h June 2017 i.e., Composite Supply of Works Contract as defined in clause 119 of Section 2 of Central Goods and Services Act, 2017 and the applicable rate of tax is 18% (9% under Central Tax and 9% State Tax).
