Merchant trading through Ebay marketplace., Goods and Services Tax - GST

Merchant trading through Ebay marketplace.

  • Contents

Sir , we are selling ritual items on ebay internationally. We do not import or export directly. After receiving order we are directly asking our Nepal supplier to send item to client at USA. And money comes to my account in India through PayPal.

Order comes in small scale. So Nepal supplier makes a small parcel and sends to my client through post office.

So what should I do after GST ?

In this situation three stages are involved.

1. You place the purchase order on Nepal supplier. This is export of service from taxable territory.

2. Nepal dealer supplies the goods to a person in USA. This activity is from non-taxable territory to non-taxable territory. Hence no question of GST.

3. Now you receive the amount of profit or commission in the form of foreign exchange. This amount has been received by you on account of export of service (though you have not complied with export procedure) as well as activities happened in non-taxable territories. Services have been enjoyed in a foreign country because of your export of service of placing order on Nepal dealer.

It cannot be denied or challenged.So your profit or commission, whatever you may call, is the result of export of service.

Hence not taxable. Placing the purchase order on a person located outside India is export of service and nobody can challenge it. As a result, foreign currency has been received. Both conditions fulfilled for export purpose or criteria.

Namaste sir

Thanks for your message sir.
There is no agreement between me and supplier in Nepal. Actually there is 2 or 3 supplier from whom I purchase.

It’s a small scale shipment.
I get orders in Ebay from Usa. Each order is in between 10 usd to 40 usd.
After that I ask my Nepal supplier to pack that item and send it through post office ( registered mail from Nepal )

All the payments I receive in India through PayPal.
PayPal convert that money into Indian currency and transfer it to my bank account.

Dear Querist, You can show this transaction value against the column "Exempt. Etc." in GDTR returns.

Namaste sir.

According to new rule for small exporters where letter of undertaking needed to be furnished instead of bond how to show it in merchant trading while filling GST return ?

9 Dated: 2-10-2017

Filing letter of undertaking makes no difference. Exported goods are zero rated. You can show in Column 8 A 8 B etc.

10 Dated: 2-10-2017

There is a difference between zero rated and NIL. Exempted goods also carry separate category for the purpose of accountal and filling in GSTR returns. One has to be careful.

11 Dated: 3-10-2017

Against export you are eligible for ITC and against NIL and exempted you are not eligible for ITC. You have not followed export procedure. This is the difference.
