What is GST ITC-04?
Job work means the processing of raw materials or semi-finished goods supplied by the principal manufacturer to the job worker. This is to complete a part or whole of the process which results in the manufacture or finishing of an article or any other essential operation.
According to the GST Act, job work under GST means any treatment/process undertaken by a person on goods which belongs to another registered person. The person doing the job work is called the Job Worker.
For example, big shoe manufacturers (principal) send out the half-made shoes (upper part) to smaller manufacturers (job worker) to fit in the soles of the shoes. The job workers send back the shoes to the principal manufacturer.
The goods sent for job work can be raw material, parts or semi-finished goods. The finished goods can be a variation of the same or a complete product.
Note: Value of goods sent by the principal does not include in the aggregate turnover of the registered job worker.
ITC on job work
The principal manufacturer is allowed to take credit of the tax paid on the purchase of goods sent to the job worker. However, there are certain conditions to be met for such credit.
Place of business
ITC is allowed when:
- The goods are sent from the principal manufacturer to the job work.
- Goods are directly sent by the seller of the goods to the job worker without going to the principal manufacturer’s place.
The effective date for the claim of ITC is based on the below conditions:
- If the goods are being sent from the principal manufacturer then the date of goods sent out will be the effective date.
- If the goods are being sent directly from the seller then the date of receipt of goods by the job worker will be the effective date.
Time limit for receiving back goods
The principal manufacturer must receive the goods back within the following period:
- Capital Goods – 3 years from the effective date.
- Input Goods – 1 year from the effective date.
So, in case the goods are not received within a specified time, those goods will be deemed as supply from the effective date. Then, later the principal manufacturer will have to pay tax will on such deemed supply.
The challan issued will be treated as an invoice for such supply.
Direct selling of goods from the job worker’s place
The principal manufacturer can supply the goods from the place of business of a job worker only if the manufacturer declares such place of business as the additional place of business.
It is not applicable in the following conditions:
- If the job worker is registered.
- The principal manufacturer supplies goods which are notified by the Commissioner to be allowed to sell directly from the job worker’s place.
Time limit applicability
The time limit is not applicable when certain machinery/items are sent to the job worker to carry out the job work. These items can also include moulds and dies, jigs and fixtures, or tools sent out to a job worker for carrying out the job work.
Documents to accompany
