CA Surendra AgrawalTime of supply enables us to determine the rate of tax, value, and due dates for payment of taxes.

Under GST the liability to pay CGST / SGST, will arise at the time of supply as determined for goods and services. There are separate provisions for time of supply for goods and time of supply for services.

General Rule
1. How to determine time of supply

 

The time of supply of goods shall be the earlier of the following dates –

(a) The date of issuing of invoice (or the last day by which invoice should   have been issued as per section 28)

OR

(b) The date of receipt of payment

-whichever is earlier

2  Date of receipt of payment 1. The date on which he entered the payment in his books

OR

2. The date on which the payment is credited to his bank account

-whichever is earlier

3 Other cases If the supplier receives an amount up to Rs. 1000 in excess of the invoice amount, the time of supply for the extra amount shall be the date of issue of invoice (at the option of the supplier).
4 Example:

 

(a) Date of invoice 15th May 2017

(b) Date of receipt of payment 10th July 2017

(c) Date when supplier recorded receipt in books 11th July 2017

Time of supply will be 15th May 2017

Time of supply under reverse charge
1 Meaning Reverse charge means the liability to pay tax is by the recipient of goods/services instead of the supplier.
2 Time of supply

 

(a) the date of receipt of goods OR

(b) the date of payment OR

(c) the date immediately after THIRTY days from the date of issue of invoice by the supplier (60 days for services)
