    Is it possible to arrange your own transport take materials on Ex works basis from Mumbai and supply in your invoice and E way bill…

    Not sure if it is permitted under GST.

    Dear Sir,

    Thank you for solving my doubts as mentioned personally via mail which was very helpful.

    “In this particular situation – the “goods” are purchased from Mumbai (MH) and directly sent to the customer who lives in Kochi (KL) (in other words, goods transported by Vendor itself).
    So since the goods being sold is worth more than Rs. 50,000, E-way bill is required and I will have to give details of invoice to my Vendor who will give the same to the transporter/customer and both vendor and customer will get to know our cost of goods purchased and sold.

    So to avoid this leakage of profit margin, how do i issue the E-way bill?
    Even if I make the E-way bill myself, I still have to give the same to the vendor who will then give it to the transporter. Kindly advise.”

    Reply – “Hi, i had understood your issue but there is no solution to this. This things are mandatory, one and only thing you can do ask the transporter not to submit invoice of your supplier to the end customer and submit only invoice issued by you.

    The above can be done only if transporter agree to this.”
