Bill of Supply

Under GST there is two invoice or billing system. One for those they have to charge GST on there inovice is know as Tax Invoice and Others that not need to charge GST can generate Bill of Supply.

What is Bill of Supply?

A Bill of Supply is issued when GST is not applicable on a transaction or when GST is not to be recovered from the customer.

Who should issue Bill of Supply?

The following registrants should issue Bill of Supply:

A. Composition Dealer

A taxpayer whose turnover is less than Rs 75 lakh can opt for composition scheme. A dealer opting for composition scheme has to deposit tax on their receipts themselves, they are not allowed to collect any tax from their buyers. The GST has to be paid out of pocket by the composition dealer. They cannot charge GST in the invoice.

Thus a composition dealer has to raise a Bill of Supply instead of a Tax Invoice.

The composition dealer has to mention the words ‘composition taxable person not eligible to collect taxes on supplies’ on the Bill of Supply.

B. Exporters

An exporter is also not required to charge GST on their invoice. This is because exports supplies are zero-rated. Hence a taxpayer exporting goods can issue a Bill of Supply in place of a tax invoice.

The dealer has to mention the following in their Bill of Supply-

“Supply Meant For Export On Payment Of IGST” OR

“Supply Meant For Export Under Bond Or Letter Of Undertaking Without Payment Of IGST”

C. Exempted Goods Supplier

When registered dealer supplies exempt goods or services they are required to issue Bill of Supply.

For example, when a registered taxpayer provides unprocessed agricultural products they have to issue a Bill of Supply instead of a tax invoice.
