Whether liable to get registered as E-commerce Operator under GST or not?, Goods and Services Tax - GST

Issue Id: - 115741
Dated: 4-12-2019
Whether liable to get registered as E-commerce Operator under GST or not?

  • Contents


Assessee is a company working as an intermediary between gym operator and customer. Assessee collects fees from the customer and pays to gym operator with which the company has tie-up.

For example:

Company has tie-up with 10 gyms. Company collects ₹ 8000 from customer as 1 year fees for gym. Customer goes to the suggested gym and company pays to the gym directly on behalf of the customer. However, Company is only liable to pay for the services consumed by the customer, like customer went to gym for only 2 months so even if the company has collected ₹ 8000 as yearly fees, company is liable to pay for 2 months only to the gym.


Whether company is required to get registered as an E-Commerce operator? If registered as E-Commerce operator then what will be the liability to collect tax from gyms in case gyms are not registered under GST?

Kindly clarify the GST Registration requirement.

Your client's activity is not covered under the category,"Intermediary Services" as he retains amount in his pocket See the definition of intermediary provided under Section 2(13) of IGST Act which is extracted below:-

Section 2((13) “intermediary” means a broker, an agent or any other person, by whatever name called, who arranges or facilitates the supply of goods or services or both, or securities, between two or more persons, but does not include a person who supplies such goods or services or both or securities on his own account.

So registration under the category of "E-Commerce Operator" is required. Collect GST from gyms and deposit with Govt.

Do not intermingle two services.

How do u satisfy the definition of Sec 2(44),2(45) of CGST Act, 2017.

Is really chargeable U/s 9(5), if so only registration required as per sec 24. Please revise your query as well as reply given.
