GST Registration and Honorarium- Nov, 2017 examination
The Goods and Services Tax Act, 2017 is operational since 1st July, 2017.
The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India is registered under the Goods and Services Tax Act. The services rendered by Resource person to the Examination Department of ICAI are covered under the above mentioned Act.
ICAI Examination Department, located at C-1/C-5 Sector 1, NOIDA is registered under the GST Act, in the state of Uttar Pradesh. The Registration No. of Exam Dept of ICAI under GST Act is 09AAAAT7798M3ZF.
It may be noted that under section 22 of the GST Act every supplier is required to be registered in the State from where he provides a taxable supply of goods or services or both, if his aggregate turnover in a financial year exceeds Rs.20 lakhs.
Provided further that where such person makes taxable supply of goods or services or both from any of the special category states he shall be liable to be registered, if his aggregate turnover in a financial year exceeds Rs.10 lakhs.
Further, in terms of section 24 of the said Act, persons making any Inter-State taxable supply of goods or services are required to be registered under the GST Act notwithstanding the turnover limit mentioned above.
In other words, in case you are an examiner/resource person located outside the state of Uttar Pradesh and rendering services to ICAI, you will be required to register yourself under the GST Act 2017 irrespective of whether your gross receipts are less than Rs 20 lakhs or otherwise since the said limit does not apply to Inter- state services.
Consequently, GST at 18% is applicable on the following amounts paid to resource persons:
Out of pocket expenses bill
Bills for conveyance, boarding, lodging/daily allowances
Air fare/train fare
