    Can we ,as registered person in GST , sent material on delivery challan to our sister unit (being registered as a distinct person in GST ) on job work for further processing on semi finished goods ?
    Whether such GOODS is covered in definition of job work and to be said belonging to ANOTHER person.

    1. SC Bhagat & Co. says:

      “In section 143 (Job Work Provisions), “Registered Person” term is used for principal and registered person construed as separate person as per Section 2(94) read along with section 25(4) from the undermentioned persons:
      1. Distinct person (Same PAN) having business establishment within state or in any other state
      2. Other related parties.

      So as per our opinion, a registered person can send inputs/capital goods to his other business establishment, sister concern or related parties for job work.”
