  • Mr A registered under GST engaged in the business of supply of tangible assets i. e. bulldozers on hourly basis. Whether he is eligible for ITC of GST paid on purchase of new bulldozers?

    • As per author's interpretation, ITC paid on purchase of new bulldozers would be available to Mr A because supply of bulldozers on hourly basis is also further supply of same vehicle.

  • In your example of a CA 's office ,if the repairs are taken to revenue, you get Input credit.Input will not be available only if the same is capitalised.

  • Loss in the quantity of gold during process is not covered under this clause of U/S 17. Once we are making any article of gold or silver or jewelry there is a value addition for all such process losses so the quantity difference because of process loss is not covered under Goods lost, stolen, destroyed, written off, or disposed of by way of gift or free samples.

  • Good coverage giving all aspects of the provisions. Good attempt made by the author. Very useful for any one to know the real picture.

  • Sir can you please give an example where life insurance services are taken as an inward supply and an outward supply is being made of the same.
