Reverse Charge is a mechanism where the liability to pay tax on goods and services lies on the recipient instead of the supplier. APPLICABILITY Reverse charge is applicable when: It is specified by the CBIC for the supply of certain goods and services. Goods are supplied by an unregistered dealer to a registered dealer. There is a supply of services through an E-commerce operator. TIME OF SUPPLY As per reverse charge in the case of goods, the time of supply is the earliest of the three: Date of receipt of goods Date of payment The date is immediately after 30 days from the date of issue of invoice from the supplier. For example, If goods were received by the supplier on 15th June, and the date of the invoice was on 3rd July but the date of entry in the books of the receiver was 25th June, then the time of supply of goods would be on 15th June. As per reverse charge in the case of services, the time of supply is the earliest of the two: Date of payment. Date immediately after 60 days from the date of issue of invoice by the supplier. For example, if the date of payment of services provided was on 16th July, and the date of issue of the invoice was on 15th May ( 60 days from 15th May is 14th July), then the time of supply of services would be 14th July. 0 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Related Questions What is composite supply and mixed supply?
