Concept & Definition of ‘PLACE OF SUPPLY’ Under GST Act. 2017

The concept of “Place of Supply” has paramount importance because of the very nature of the new taxation system of GST. As GST is a destination and consumption based tax, the place of supply is a crucial factor for Settlement of funds and cross utilization of Input Tax Credit on inputs and input services. At the outset, we need to understand the two types of the nature of supplies:

 

1. Intra-State Supply: If the place of supply of goods and/or services is within the State, such transaction is called Intra-State Supply and CGST and SGST/UTGST as the case may be, is levied by the Centre and State/UT Governments.

 

2. Inter-State Supply: In case the place of supply of goods and/or services is in the State other than the origin place of supply. Import and export of goods will also be an inter-State supply. In case of services where any of the recipient or supplier of service is outside India will also be an inter-State supply. IGST is levied and collected by the Central Govt. on such supplies.

 

Therefore, levy of CGST/SGST/UTGST or IGST is completely dependent upon the fact as to where be the Place of Supply. Thus, classification of supply either as intra-State or inter-State is crucial for correct levy of tax in GST. Place of supply is also important because determining it in certain cases of the supply of services is real difficult task. To understand the basics and the concept of the place of supply, following terms are important:
