Facts of the Case

The applicant was carrying on the business of body building of commercial vehicles where the customer would purchase the chassis and handover to applicant for fabricating the body. It filed an application for advance ruling to determine taxability of work done by body building of commercial vehicles.

AAR Held

The Authority for Advance Ruling observed that applicant would be fabricating body on chassis belonging to customer where ownership of chassis would remain with customer and at no stage of process of fabrication of body, title of chassis would be transferred to applicant. Therefore, this activity would squarely be covered under Para 3 of Schedule II of the CGST Act, 2017 as treatment or process applied to another person’s goods and accordingly it shall be treated as supply of services. Therefore, GST shall be leviable at rate of 18% as per entry at Sl No. 26 (iv) of Notification No. 11/2017 Central Tax (Rate) dated 28.6.2017.
