Gst to be paid on 250000 only.

For the amounts received earlier, levy was under ST. Even if not paid then, as on today the period within which the department can demand has expired.

Rule 4A (1) of erstwhile Service Tax Rules. 1994 provides that every person providing taxable service shall issue an invoice, bill or challan within 30 days from the date of completion of such taxable service or receipt of any payment towards value of the taxable service whichever is earlier. Thus invoice is required even when the advance is received. Therefore you have to pay service tax on the entire amount and interest is payable on ₹ 730000 from the date of receipt of the amount till the date of payment of service tax on it.

Sh.Santosh Patil Ji,

The builder (the assessee) will have to tax on the whole amount.

RULE 3. Determination of point of taxation (POTRs, 2011)

(a) __________

(b) ____________

Explanation - For the purpose of this rule, wherever any advance by whatever name known, is received by the service provider towards the provision of taxable service, the point of taxation shall be the date of receipt of each such advance.].

Time-bar is out of picture, it being also continuous supply. See the definition of continuous supply in ST & GST.

I fully agree with Sh.Ranganathan, Sir.

No GST is payable on the said balance amount of ₹ 250000 as it is supposed that occupancy certificate had already been issued prior to july 2017. If not issued before receipt of the said balance amount, GST is payable only on ₹ 250000 as transaction prior to GST period can not be treated as supply under GST.

Pre-GST period and post-GST regime both are integrally linked.

Sale deed was executed in the year 2021-22. The balance amount was received in the year 2021-22. The builder applies for completion certificate to the Competent Authority only after receipt of full payment. He would also not allow occupation prior to the receipt of full payment.The assessee is bound by the date of advance , the date of completion of service. and the date of invoice. In this case no completion certificate was issued prior to the year 21-22.

Sh.Santosh Patil Ji,

Has you client received a letter or SCN from the department ?

Completion certificate is applied for based on the stage of completion in the project and is generally not dependent on whether amounts are received from the customers or not.

Also, the time when the liability to pay tax on a particular amount arises, that year will be the year of liabbility and the limitation period should be calculated. Merely because it is a continuous supply of service the demand cannot be extended upto the last instalment received. Else, in that case the constcution asseessees will have to maintain books for very long time, which is not the purpose.

Taxability(GST orST) of construction of flat ceases after issuance of completion certificate or occupancy cerficate as per law .so this is vital for taxability of flat

on 730000 received till 2013, it is time barred and your client need not pay service tax. refer rule 6(b) of POT rules for due date of payment.

with respect to 250000, it is being treated as stock in trade which means service is completed but amount is not received. For determining point of Taxation (POT) and liability to pay service tax if any, we should know since what date it is being treated as stock in trade. if such date is beyond 5 years, prima facie tax is not payable.
