As per my view, place of supply of service is in india which is different from the place of supplier, therefore it is qualify as inter-state supply and liable to IGST. Export of service is not qualify

all the conditions should satisfy for export of service :

-supplier of service is in india

-receiver of service is outside india

-service to perform outside india

-payment to received in foreign currency

-establishment of distinct person

in all the conditions, service perform in india therefore not qualify as export of service.

thanks for your reply but the recipient is the person who is receiving the service ie the quality audit report is sent to the foreign party located abroad though the services are performed in india but they dont fall under performance based services

under sec 13(2) of IGST Act the place of supply of services except the services specified in sub section (3) to (13) shall be location of recipient of service.

Since Sub section (3) to (13) are not applicable will not the above default rule apply

As per para no.5 titled, "observations" of Order dated 7.7.18 of Advance Ruling Authority Maharashtra in RE : Vservglobal Pvt. Ltd. reported as 2018 (19) GSTL.173 (AAR-GST) = 2018 (11) TMI 959 - AUTHORITY FOR ADVANCE RULING, MAHARASHTRA , to qualify a transaction of supply of service as export of services that transaction has to satisfy all five ingredients of the definition of export of services simultaneously. So in your situation the condition at (iii) of the above definition is not satisfied. Go through the whole decision carefully. It answers your query.

sirs When we talk of gst as a destination based tax the taxes will follow the goods / services here the destination of the service is the recipient located abroad, suppose let us mirror the transaction in india then definitely the destination of the services is in india.

going a step further the foreign party which receives the quality audit report will based on the report decide to do business in india and then there will be imports of those goods into india

just because the performance of the service is in india the recipient will receive the quality audit report abroad and he is consuming the services abroad

if we carry this argument the software services which are being performed in india and the recipient is abroad will also be hit ???

Dear Sh.Madhavan Ji, Pl.refer to your last para. Are you talking of OIDAR Service ? That is covered in last but one clause of Section 13 IGST Act, 2017 for the purpose of determination of place of supply. I have posted the case law which squarely covers the situation already explained by you. If your service is OIDAR, then situation is entirely different. We will have to start discuss afresh.

Lawfully I agree with Sh.Pawan Kumar Ji. Practically ultimately service will be received, consumed and enjoyed outside India but we are to follow law.

sirs in this case which tax to be discharged igst or cgst /sgst the service provider is located in maharashtra and deputes his person to other state ie haryana and the service is completed and thereafter the person comes to Maharahstra base office and the report will be submitted

Further the invoice will be raised by the office in maharashtra in USD on foreign party since we cant collect the tax from foreign vendor can we arrive the amount inclusive of tax and then discharge the tax suppose we raise invoice for 100USD gross and then tax will be calculated in reverse way and discharged
