Case 1: A view can be taken that section 10(1)(b) is not applicable as there is no principal place of business of B. So 10(1)(a) IGST Act would apply. Either way it would be CGST + SGST

Case 2: This is not import of goods nor service. No GST liability on B or A.

For transaction between B and C also no GST liability as per schedule III - S. No. 7.

Thanks Shilpi ji. Following is my view on the same:

Section 7(5)(a) will get attracted in this situation and accordingly, Seller – A need to charge IGST in the Tax Invoice.

Your kind views please

It is covered under schedule iii then there is no liability.

IGST Act Section 10(1)(b) merely states principal place of business. There is no further qualification that the principal place of business should be in India and not outside India

CGST Act definition of principal place of business merely states that place of business for which certificate of registration is granted. Again there is no qualification in India

CGST Act provides for registration of Non resident taxable person, in this case clearly such person has no place of business or residence in India.

Undoubtedly, in case 1 the goods are neither physically exported or imported into India. therefore Section 10 of IGST Act can be said to be applicable to case 1.

If a harmonious reading is to be adopted then even case 1 can be covered under 10(1)(b) - subject to the non resident taxable person obtaining registration under GST.

Can this argument be countered?
