As per Section 67A of Finance Act, 1994, the rate of service tax is when service is deemed to have been provided. In each of aforesaid case, the Point of Taxation is as follows – (a) [payment of service tax on receipt basis] Individuals and partnership firms including LLP (but not HUF firms) whose total value of taxable services from all premises together is ` 50 lakhs or less in the previous financial year can opt to pay service tax on receipt basis instead of accrual basis [fourth proviso to rule 6(1) of Service Tax Rules inserted w.e.f. 1-4-2012] (b) [reverse charge] In case of services covered under reverse charge, the point of taxation shall be the date on which payment is made to service provider, if the payment for such service is made within three months from date of invoice. If the payment for such service is not made within three months from date of invoice, the point of taxation will be the date immediately following the period of three months – first proviso to rule 7 of POT Rules. (c) [date of invoice after 1-7-2017] As per Rule 3(a) of Point of Taxation Rules, 2011, unless otherwise provided, time when invoice for the service provided or to be provided is issued, shall be ‘point of taxation’.

The issue of GST rate will arise as service tax rate upto 30-6-2017 was 15% while GST rate is 18%. For (a) above [payment of service tax on receipt basis], really GST should be 15% as he has already raised invoice at that rate. Hence, point of taxation is before 30-6-2017. However, this rate may not be accepted in GSTR1 return. As regards (b) [reverse charge] and (c) [date of invoice after 1-7-2017], the GST rate will be 18%, as point of taxation is after 1-7-2017.

75. If I charge freight on bill which is containing rates as 5/12/18/28% GST, then it will be a composite supply and freight will be charged at the rates of 5/12/18/28% respectively. What if invoice of freight is sent later on after delivery of goods? Then what rate will be chargeable on freight?
1. yes 2. even then same GST rate as factually it is a composite supply only
76. A Ltd Company enters into an MOU with B Ltd for purchasing a ready to move in commercial property after 3 years for a fixed consideration. Property is currently in under construction condition. Entire consideration shall be discharged once the property is fully constructed. A Ltd will give an interest free refundable security deposit to B Ltd (equivalent to consideration) which will be refunded back to A Ltd once the property is acquired by A. Whether GST is applicable in this case?
This is nothing but advance being shown as security deposit This will never get refunded – it will get adjusted towards payment to be paid to builder. Really GST should be payable when so called security deposit is received
77. As per S.31 of CGST read with Invoice rules the rate of tax and amount of tax charged under CGST, SGST, IGST has to be mentioned in Invoice. Can the invoice be issued stating “including of GST”. Many dealers are issuing invoices “including of GST”. If it cannot be issued for B2B can it be issued for B2C “including of GST”.
legally incorrect – tax has to be indicated separately – whether B2B or B2C
78. If advance is received on sale of goods in July and then actual sales made in Sept, then at the time of actual sales the seller will issue tax invoice with full amount and will also attach receipt voucher with it. The buyer will pay only the net amount to seller. Then the seller will show it alongwith details of receipt voucher in GSTR-1 in Sept Return i.e. in Oct. Whether this procedure is correct or not
not attach receipt voucher – he will adjust the tax shown in Tax Invoice against tax paid when advance was received this adjustment will be shown in GSTR-1 return
79. A company distributes pen and pad free with their logo to its distributors whether this is covered under free supply and whether GST is applicable. Whether company can claim ITC on the said material when it has purchased the same
GST not applicable but ITC reversible if it was taken at the time of purchase
80. For registration limit of Rs.20 Lakh / 10 Lakh is for previous year turnover or current year turnover. if current year turnover is to be taken, should it be taken from April to till date of from 1 July onwards
it is for previous year
81. If tour operator provides services of booking of hotels or booking of car / train / bus tickets etc what will be the value and rate under GST? 1. if he is charging amount inclusive of cost of accommodation or transport

2. if he is charging only booking charges and raised an reimbursement bill for cost of accommodation and transport.

3. what documents shall be issued for reimbursement charges, invoice or bill of supply?

1. then as if he is charging for accommodation itself

2. then 18% on his commission

3. at that stage he cannot produce hotels’ invoice – that will be only when the person stays and the hotel prepares bill – when the tour operator makes invoice he can only show hotel charges separately

82. We are a limited Co. and we have around 200 field staff who use their own vehicle, travel by Train / Taxi, stay in low cost hotels (below Rs. 1000 per day), have fooding at Dhabas & charge Daily Allowances also. RCM is applicable on which items?
RCM applies only if the service is taxable and obtained from unregistered persons. If service is exempt then no question of RCM
83. Kindly advice me that ITC on Motor Car purchased is not allowed for normal dealer but can we avail ITC of Motor car expenses like repairing, spares parts, etc.
There is no exclusion and hence ITC should be available
84. 1. Is transfer of used Capital Goods equipment of a contractor firm from one state to another state which is registered in both states, for conducting contract works under GST regime taxable?

2. If so how to compute the taxable value.

3. If not can a delivery challan will be sufficient for transfer

Really registration in different States are treated as two different persons but there is no consideration as after the work, the capital goods will be brought back In my view, Delivery Challan is sufficient as it is not ‘supply’ but yes different views are possible
85. Where rent is payable monthly of Rs. 10000 to an unregistered person by a registered person is it covered under reverse charge can benefit of Rs. 5000 per day be taken since per day rent is less than Rs. 5000
it has to be calculated on basis of total expenses per day – the monthly rent cannot get covered here
