GST on Development agreement, Goods and Services Tax - GST

Issue Id: - 114480
Dated: 10-1-2019

GST on Development agreement

  • Contents

An individual enters into development agreement with a builder for a consideration of X amount.

The Consideration is completely in cash and not kind.

Not. No.4/2018 Dtd.25/01/18 mandates GST on development rights to be paid by registered person on consideration recd. from builder.

My take on this is that GST shall not be applicable as it is not a Supply Per Se.

If read with Sec. 7, which defines supply to be in the course or furtherance of business.

It is not a business for that individual to enter into agreement with the builder. It was his one of the land on which development rights have been supplied to builder for cash consideration

But since it is not a business and moreover in course or furtherance of business, the test for Supply fails and hence no GST.

Business is defined under sec. 2(17) of CGST Act 2017. As per the definition 2(17)(c)

(c) any activity or transaction in the nature of sub-clause (a), whether or not there is volume, frequency, continuity or regularity of such transaction; So in my view it's a business transaction

Dear Sir,

By strict reading of law,I would second the view of Shri.Sharad Anada Ji.

But on another side it is not proper to levy GST on personal transaction like this where the assessee has to pay a lumpsum income tax under capital gains. However, since the amount involved in these transactions are humongous the revenue don't want to exude the tax amount involved.

The decision has to be taken either aggressive or conservative depending on the amount involved and the consent of the assessee where he is ready for the elongated litigation with a peril on the interest amount involved.
