In case any registered person, is required to prepare invoice in terms of Rule 48(4) but not enabled on the portal, they may request for enablement on portal: ‘Registration -> e-Invoice Enablement’.

In case any registered person, who doesn’t have the requirement to prepare invoice in terms of Rule 48(4) but still enabled on the e-invoice portal, the same may be brought to the notice at support.einv.api@gov.in so that necessary action can be taken.

Applicant is engaged in selling books, stationery, etc. and offering courses like Mental Arithmetic, English Smart under brand name of ‘ALOHA’ operated by Explore Knowledge Resources, LLP Applicant has entered into an agreement with Explore Knowledge Resources, LLP as per which applicant is only authorized to supply goods and services under brand name of ‘ALOHA’ and cannot supply other goods and services Thus, applicant is supplying goods and services on behalf of other taxable person and shall accordingly be covered under Sl. No. (vii) of section 24, hence shall be liable to take GST registration and pay GST on supply of goods and services

5.2. E-way bill did not mention correct details; Case to be decided by department on merits

Jaitron Communication Pvt. Ltd. Vs. State Of U.P. (Allahabad High Court)

Admittedly, in the facts of the present case the petitioner did accept that the e-way bill with the vehicle did not contain correct description with regard to movement of goods. Perusal of the orders passed would clearly go to show that the claim set up by the assessee with regard to transportation of machine for performance of job work has not been examined on merits. The proper Officer in terms of the scheme was expected to examine the specific defence set up by the petitioner and consequently determine the liability of tax payable by the petitioner. Such factual issues require proper determination at the level of the proper Officer, at the first instance.

The proper Officer is requested to examine such defence of the petitioner and thereafter determine the liability, if any, in accordance with law. It is made clear that this Court has not determined the liability of the petitioner on merits and all issues of fact are left open to be examined by the proper Officer, at the first instance – petition allowed by way of remand.

    Sir,

    We are automobile Dealer and we have collection Tcs 1%(Now 0.75%) on sale of Motor vehicles more than 10 lacs. Now if we are sold 10 cars to same customer Total value Rs 80 lacs including one car total value Rs 10 lacs. Now my doubt is if we collect Tcs of 0.1%(now 0.075%) applicable on 30 lacs (80 lacs – 50 lacs) or 20 lacs(80 lacs-50 lacs -10 lacs).
    Please suggest.
