4. COMMENTS OF THE JURISDICTIONAL OFFICER
The jurisdiction officer (Deputy Commissioner, CGST Division-A, CGST Jaipur Commissionerate, Jaipur) has submitted his comments vide letter dated 09.09.2019 and stated that,
As per Section 12(3)(a) of IGST Act, 2017, in case of works contract services, place of supply shall be the location at which the immovable property (construction site) is located. Thus the applicant taxguru.in is not required to have any separate GST registration in Karnataka state for supply of works contract service. In reply of Point No.3 of the application, Section 10(1)(b) of the IGST Act brings clarity to the issue, it state that “where the goods are delivered by the supplier to a recipient or any other person on the direction of a third person, whether acting as an agent or otherwise, before or during movement of goods, either by way of transfer of documents of title to the goods or otherwise, it shall be deemed that the said third person has received the goods and the place of supply of such goods shall be the principal place of business of such person;”. The law therefore determines that when supplier A delivers goods to recipient C at the direction of third person B, the goods will be deemed to have been received by B and the place of supply shall be the place of B. Therefore, even if the goods were moved by A in Rajasthan to C in Karnataka, they would be deemed to be received by B in Rajasthan and therefore CGST + SGST would be charged by A. The reason for this determination is that tax should follow the commercial transaction to avoid any loss of credits. In the commercial world, there would be a second sales transaction between B and C which would attract IGST so that both B and C can claim GST credit and keep the GST chain unbroken.f
5. FINDINGS, ANALYSIS & CONCLUSION:
6. In view of the foregoing, we rule as follows: –
The question raised by the applicant pertains to GST registration in State of Karnataka, which is beyond the purview of this authority therefore no ruling is given
