the replies to your queries are as under: -

Q a) Under Invoice issued under Section 31 of the CGST Act, 2017.

Q b) Yes, IGST is to be charged when goods are despatched by A based in Maharashtra to Agent In West Bengal and Invoice is to be raised by A.

Q c) Since the agent in West Bengal has registration under the GST Act, Company A need no taken registration in West Bengal. Since the agent is registered in West Bengal for the purpose of the CGST Act he will be the supplier of goods. Therefore he has to issue an invoice under Section 31 of CGST Act, 2017. He cannot supply goods under the invoice of company A.

Please note the reply to your queries:

a) The goods will be dispatched as a normal tax invoice.

b) IGST will be applicable on goods dispatched to West Bengal

c) Since goods are to be supplied by the agent in West Bengal who is already registered in West Bengal, Company A need not register in West Bengal.

Please note the supply by agent to Customer will be treated as intra-state supply

Since the material is transferred for storage purpose, ownership of goods is not transferred and hence A has to take registration of GST in West Bengal and transfer goods by way of IGST Invoice in his own name to WB

Once it is sold, company A has to issue CGST/SGST Invoice from WB to the local customer in WB. Company A can take input Tax credit of IGST at the time of sale.
