  1. A. Gangatharan says:

    Turnover means the value of taxable service provided on payment of / recovery of service tax due thereon only but not on the value on which RCM was adopted in payment of ST during the previous financial year.


    Dear Sir,
    I provide 2 types of services. (i) As a Company Director, where the RCM applies and the concerned Company pays ST/GST as per RCM, and (ii) as a Management Consultant to other Service Receivers, where I pay ST/GST and recover it from my Service Receivers.
    Now, under GSTR-1, the total turnover for FY 2016-17 and Quarter April-June 2017 has to be mandatorily provided. My query is whether this turnover is the one where Service Tax has been paid by me on recovery from Service Receivers (scenario ii) or turnover from services provided under RCM (scenario i) should also be added to the turnover from scenario (ii) for arriving at total turnover to be shown under GSTR-1 ?
