You have not indicated the place of supply of service. If it is India (taxable territory) then gst is payable though consultancy fees are received in convertible foreign currency. If the place of supply is out side taxable territory (India) then it will amount to export of service which can be done either under bond/LUT without payment of IGST or on payment of IGST. The IGST paid can be claimed as refund after completion of export. Similarly you are eligible to take ITC and the same can be used for payment of IGST. If you export without payment of IGST you can claim refund of tax paid on inputs and input services utilised for export of service.

From the language of query, I think that place of Supply is in India. Hence taxable. I am all praise for crystal clear reply by Sh.Ranganathan, Sir.

Thank you Rajgopalan and Kasturi Seth Ji,

Further, explanation to my query is as under,

The company has been incorporated in India, say A Pvt Ltd, subsidiary of A Inc. Holding Company (A Inc) is US based. Professional fees invoice has been raised to A Inc (situated in USA). So, I am also not clear about place of the supply in this scenario. Please through some light on place of the supply in this scenario and applicability of the GST, with reference to relevant portion of the Act.
