Service taxpayers under reverse charge:

The responsibility of depositing tax in the GST system lies with the supplier of goods or services.

For them also, it has been made mandatory to get online GST registration done. To understand Reverse Charge a little better, pay attention to the points given below.

  • The situation of Reverse Charge is created in taking the service of a professional person (Service Import). The buyer of the service pays GST not to the supplier but to the direct government.

For example, you have a firm. You took the services of an Advocate for any legal work or took the services of a financial planner for professional guidance. In such a situation, on the value for which you will take the services, you will also have to pay the GST of the prescribed rate to you and not to the service provider.

  • Some such services have been fixed in the rules of GST, on the use of which the responsibility of collecting GST will be on the service taker and not the service provider.
  • Apart from this, there is also a situation of Partial Reverse Charge, in which the responsibility of some part of GST will be on the service taker and the rest will be the responsibility of the service provider.
