GST Liability, Goods and Services Tax - GST

Issue Id: - 117363
Dated: 19-7-2021
By:- Ethirajan Parthasarathy
GST Liability

  • Contents

"A" in Karnataka is engaged in sale of Rail Pass for tourists to Britain. "A" will get commission from foreign principal for every pass sold.

"A" engages services of "B" in Tamil Nadu to co–ordinate with prospective tourists, generate invoice for pass sold and "B" is authorised to collect some amount from tourist as services fee. "A" does not pay "B" any service charges. In other words, "B" in Tamil Nadu renders services to "A" in Karnataka but collects fee from person located in Tamil Nadu. The Questions are

Whether "B" should pay CGST or IGST on processing fee received from tourist.

Whether the commission received by "A" from foreign company can be treated as "Export Services". If not, "A" should pay CGST or IGST

The recipient of service for B's service is A. So it should be IGST since the supplier is in TN and the place of supply is Kar.

The services provided by A, the recipient is the foreign principal. Why are you using the reference 'principal'. In case the terms of the contract are such that the services are that of an intermediary, the GST would be liable for the commission received.

If not intermediary service and A provides the services actually on his own account then it could be an export of service (more detail on the service required).

Dear Sir,

Just for knowledge - How is he/she providing rail passes (hope its indian rail passes) to foreign travelers, when the government has discontinued the same?

Intermediary situation may become issue in this case.

In my view, B is collecting fee from person i.e. tourist located in Tamil Nadu. Being B is in Tamil Nadu he will charge CGST+SGST and pay GST. And there is second transaction where B supplies service to A in which case IGST is applicable.
