Ans 1-Section 12(8) of IGST is also applicable for courier
Ans-2 place of supply for goods sent outside country through courier mode shall be the location at which such goods are handed over for their transportation as section 13(9) excludes courier services .
Ans-3 ITC should not be denied on basis of SAC only
Section 12(8) specifically includes courier also.
Section 13 will not be applicable for cases where service provider and recipient are both within India. so for second query place of supply should be outside India as per section 12.
Credit should not be denied merely because it is pos outside India. That was not the intention of the amendment. Though will have to see in GSTR-2B if it will be shown as ineligible credit and what will be the department view and stand
Dear Shilpi JI,
AS Per 2B ITC Availability is Yes.
