Inter-co managerial/leadership services to attract 18% GST

Managerial and leadership services by office to its group companies/construction sites registered in different states would attract 18 per cent GST, Maharashtra bench of AAR has ruled.

B G Shirke Construction Technology Pvt Ltd had approached the Authority for Advance Ruling (AAR) seeking to know whether the managerial and leadership services provided by the registered/office to its group would be considered as ‘supply of service’.

Also, whether the lump sum amount charged by the registered/office on its group would be liable to (GST).

Passing its ruling, the Maharashtra AAR held that managerial and leadership services by corporate office to its group and other construction sites registered in different States is “supply of service” and would be taxable under GST.

AMRG & Associates Senior Partner Rajat Mohan said this ruling would mean an additional levy of 18 per cent GST on the inter-company services in the form of managerial and leadership services irrespective of whether consideration has been charged for the same or not.

“This ruling would severely impact corporates operating through a network of multi-locational companies, whereby tax is payable on managerial and leadership services supplied from the corporate office to all group companies. Accurate valuation and estimation of such administrative and leadership services on a monthly/quarterly basis could be a big issue for all large corporate houses,” Mohan added.
