Tax on Legal Services to an educational institution

  • Contents

One of our clients is an educational institution, registered as a Society and is eligible for Income Tax exemption. It is receiving some legal consultancy services from a firm of advocates. Is the service exempt from GST or does the client have to pay tax on reverse charge basis as a business entity?

Would be obliged for opinions of the experts in this forum.

Thank you.The institution lets out it's hall occasionally and for that activity it is registered under GST.The income from such activity is insignificant to its total turnover.

Your client is supplying Renting of Immovable Property Services as a Society. Hence the Society is engaged in commercial activity. The Renting hall may be occasionally. The 'occasional' renting does not help the Society in any way. Therefore, the Society is registered as business entity with the department. It cannot be denied. Hence RCM is applicable.

Your client cannot get rid of the phrase, 'business entity' on the premise mentioned by you.
