    1. CLARIFICATIONS ON GST APPLICABILITY FOR DELCREDERE AGENT:

    Circular No. 57/3/2018-GST dated 04.09.2018 has been issued to provide that the movement of goods between Principal and Agent would be considered as deemed supply under Schedule I of CGST Act, 2017 to attract GST, only when Agent undertakes to issue invoice in his own name. In cases, where Principal undertakes to issue invoice to customer, then supply of goods by Principal to Agent will not be considered as deemed supply and accordingly, no GST is payable.

    In view of this clarification, certain representations were made with respect to GST implications in case of Del-Credere Agent (DCA) who guarantees the payment to Principal even if there is a default by Customer. DCA effectively extends loan to Customer or charges interest for delay in payment for the goods supplied to him.

    It is clarified that in cases where the Principal undertakes to issue invoice in his own name, then the movement of goods by Principal to DCA will not be a deemed supply and no GST is applicable. GST is applicable on the value at which goods are sold by Principal to Customer using the services of DCA. With respect to loan extended by DCA to Customer, it shall be treated as a separate supply of service by DCA to Customer. The interest charged by DCA for delay in payment by Customer will be exempt under Sl.No 27 of Notification 12/2017-Central Tax(Rate) dated 28.06.2018.

    In is also clarified that in cases where DCA undertakes to issue invoice in his own name, then the movement of goods from Principal to DCA will be deemed to be a supply and GST is payable by Principal. The subsequent movement of goods from DCA to Customer will also be deemed to be a supply and DCA is required to collect and pay GST on the value of such goods supplied to Customer. In such cases, the interest charged by DCA towards the loan extended to Customer shall be includable in the value of goods supplied in terms of Section 15(2)(d) of CGST Act, 2017.
