Notification No. 11/2017-Central Tax (Rate) dated 28.06.2017

G.S.R….(E).-In exercise of the powers conferred by sub-section (1) of section 9, sub-section (1) of section 11, sub-section (5)of section 15 and sub-section (1) of section 16 of the Central Goods and Services Tax Act, 2017 (12 of 2017),the Central Government, on the recommendations of the Council, and on being satisfied that it is necessary in the public interest so to do, hereby notifies that the central tax, on the intra-State supply of services of description as specified in column (3)of the Table below, falling under Chapter, Section or Heading of scheme of classification of services as specified in column (2), shall be levied at the rateas specified in the corresponding entry in column (4), subject to the conditions as specified in the corresponding entry in column (5) of the said Table:-

SI No. Chapter, Section or Heading Description of Service Rate(per cent.) Condition
(1) (2) (3) (4) (5)
1 Chapter 99 All Services
21 Heading 9983(Other professional, technical and business services (i) Selling of space for advertisement in print media 2.5
(ii) Other professional, technical and business services other than (i) above. 9

8. The applicant further raised question on the classification and taxability, in case the designing/fabrication/production is bundled with the services provided in question (i) to (xv) above and is not being billed separately.

8.1 To appreciate the law position in this regard, we reproduce the relevant portion of the Act as under:

(i) Section 2(30) of the Act ibid, “composite supply” means a supply made by a taxable person to a recipient consisting of two or more taxable supplies of goods or services or both, or any combination thereof, which are naturally bundled and. supplied, in conjunction with each other in the ordinary course of business, one of which is a principal supply;

(ii) Section 2(90) of the Act ibid “principal supply” means the supply of goods or services which constitutes the predominant element of a composite supply and to which any other supply forming part of that composite supply is ancillary;

(iii) Section 8 of the Act ibid: The tax liability on a composite or a mixed supply shall be determined in the following manner, namely:-

(a) a composite supply comprising two or more supplies, one of which is a principal supply, shall be treated as a supply of such principal supply; and

(b) a mixed supply comprising two or more supplies shall be treated as a supply of that particular supply which attracts the highest rate of tax.

On analysis of legal provisions & various mode of agreements, we observe that in case the designing/fabrication/production is bundled with the services provided in question (i) to (xv),supra, then the same falls under ‘composite supply’ in as much as services of ‘selling of space for advertisement’ constitutes the predominant element and therefore becomes the “principal supply” and the designing/fabrication/production shall form the part of that composite supply as ancillary in as much as ‘selling of space for advertisement’ cannot be effectively accomplished without designing/fabrication/production. Thus such ancillary activities having a direct and proximal nexus with ‘selling of space for advertisement’. Accordingly the classification and tax liability has to be adjudged as discussed in para 7 (supra)

  1. Now we come to the question of value of supply in case trade discount/additional discount/agency commission is deducted in the invoices raised in the name of the advertising agency by the TV / Radio/ Outdoor Company/ company. In this context, we find that Section 15 of the Act deals with value of taxable supply and the same is reproduced ag under:

(1) The value of a supply of goods or services or both shall be the transaction value, which is the price actually paid or payable for the said supply of goods or services or both where the supplier and the recipient of the supply are not related and the price is the sole consideration for the supply.

(2) The value of supply shall include,-

(a) any taxes, duties, cesses, fees and charges levied, under any law for the time being in force other than this Act, the State Goods and Services Tax Act, the Union Territory Goods and Services Tax Act and the Goods and Services Tax (Compensation to States) Act, if charged separately by the supplier;

(b) any amount that the supplier is liable to pay in relation to such supply but which has been incurred by the recipient of the supply and not included in the price actually paid or payable for the goods or services or both;

(c) incidental expenses, including commission and packing, charged by the supplier to the recipient of a supply and any amount charged for anything done by the supplier in respect of the supply of goods or services or both at the time of, or before delivery of goods or supply of services;

(d) interest or late fee or penalty for delayed payment of any consideration for any supply; and

(e) subsidies directly linked to the price excluding subsidies provided by the Central Government and State Governments.

Explanation.- For the purposes of this sub-section, the amount of subsidy shall be included in the value of supply of the supplier who receives the subsidy.

(3) The value of the supply shall not include any discount which is given,-

(a) before or at the time of the supply if such discount has been duly recorded in the invoice issued in respect of such supply; and

(b) after the supply has been effected, if,-

(i) such discount is established in terms of on agreement entered into at or before the time of such supply and specifically linked to relevant invoices; and

(ii) input tax credit as is attributable to the discount on the basis of document issued by the supplier been reversed by the recipient of the supply.

9.1 In view of the legal provisions (supra), the commission shall form the part of taxable value and discount of any kind is excluded from the taxable value subject to the fulfillment of the conditions laid down in the said legal provisions . Hence in-bills discounts and discount established vide agreement before the time of supply subject to the reversal of ITC by the recipient is allowable deduction from the value of the supply,

10. As regard to the taxability on cash discount, the issue has been discussed in para 9 (supra),

11. As regard to the taxability on value/volume based discounts in form of credit notes after the date of invoice, we find that section 34(2) of the Act deals with the such kind of situation and the same is reproduced as under:-

(2) Any registered person who issues a credit note in relation to a supply of goods or services or both shall declare the details of such credit note in the return for the month during which such credit note has been issued but not later than September following the end of the financial year in which such supply was mode, or the date of furnishing of the relevant annual return, whichever is earlier, and the tax liability shall be adjusted in such manner as may be prescribed:

Provided that no reduction in output tax liability of the supplier shall be permitted, if the incidence of tax and interest on such supply has been passed on to any other person.

11.1 On perusal of legal provisions in this regard, we find that the registered person who had issued a credit note, can adjust his tax liability by following the procedure mentioned above, subject to the condition that incidence of tax on such supply, has not been passed on to any other person, Thus we observe that when a supplier requires to decrease the taxable value of a supply, he has to issue a credit note to the recipient and accordingly can reduce his tax liability for the concerned period provided that he has neither charged or collected tax on such supply.

12. As regard to the benefit of Notification No. 12/2017-Central Tax (Rate) dated 28.06.2017 (as amended from time to time) in respect of the supply made by the advertising agency as mentioned in aforesaid questions to the Central Government, State Government, UT or Local Authority or Government Authority or a Government Entity, by way of any activity in relation to any function entrusted to a Panchyat under Article 243G of the Constitution or in relation to any function entrusted to a Municipality under Article 243W of the Constitution, the relevant legal provisions are reproduced as under:
