[2/12, 7:04 AM] +91 94284 14899: GST and GTA:
In terms of notification no. 11/2017-Central Tax (Rate) dated 28.06.2017 as amended by notification no. 20/2017- Central tax (Rate) dated 22.08.2017 , sr.no. 9 and sr. no. 11, (i) Services of GTA in relation to transportation of goods attracts GST 5% or 12%. However, the rate of 5% is subject to the condition that credit of input tax has not been taken.
GST @ 12% is subject to the condition that no restriction on the GTA from taking ITC if this option is availed.
Conclusion: Thus, where the GTA is not eligible to take ITC for the supplies effected by it and the liability under GST is discharged under RCM, the recipient of GTA service discharging the tax liability is entitled to take ITC of the amount of tax paid under RCM, provided it is used in the course or furtherance of business at his end. Further the recipient would be eligible for ITC of the GST paid by GTA on forward charge basis. There is no section, rule or notification barring to take GST credit paid under forward charge to GTA either under 5% or under 12%.
