IGST Act with amendments

Why it is usefull?

Changes via amendment Act 2018 are highlighted by red color. FInance bill proposed some changes in the IGST Act. They are highlighted by blue color.

Some important definitions are changed. Like the definition of export of services is changed. Earlier exporters were facing an issue related to export to Nepal & Bhutan. RBI allowed them to make payment in Indian rupees. But the definition of export of services makes it mandatory to receive payment in foreign currency. Now it is corrected. 

Place of supply for transportation of goods:  Section 12(8) of IGST Act is also amended. Service of transportation of goods was taxable earlier. Although even after amendment it is still taxable. The change has mentioned that PoS when goods are moving outside India, is the destination of goods. It was done to make transportation of export goods, a zero-rated supply. But the change has failed to do so. Because to qualify as an export recipient shall be outside India. In this case, the recipient is still in India. Thus it is still a taxable supply. 

In case you need it frequently you can download our PDF. The Act available at CBIC website is bare and it doesn’t include the changes via amendment Acts. I hope it is of use for you.
