Taxation of Jobwork under Indian GST Law

GST and taxation on Jobwork

GST and taxation on Jobwork

Goods and Service Tax (GST) upcoming in India is likely to result in widening the tax base substantially by covering large number of potential taxpayers who are  not covered in the tax net. It is estimated that the present assessee base on Central side itself is expected to rise to approximately 60 lacs assessees from existing base of approx. 15 lacs. One of major contributor in this rise would be job workers as it is very rare that all processes of manufacture are carried out under one roof. There is an increasing trend in businesses to focus on their core activity and outsource other activities to specialised service providers

Meaning of job work

Job work is   the processing or working on goods supplied by the principal so as to complete a part or whole of the process. The work may be the initial process, intermediate process, assembly, packing or any other completion process. The goods sent for job work maybe raw material, component parts, semi finished goods and even finished goods. The resultant goods could also be a variation of the same or the complete product.

It is important to note that concepts of ‘service’, ‘manufacture’ and ‘sale’ have their own characteristics, similarities and distinctions. From constitutional and taxation aspects, concepts of ‘manufacture’, ‘sale’ and ‘service’ have deeming characteristics under the respective tax laws.

  • Service is generally regarded as broader in scope than ‘manufacture’ and ‘sale’ as it includes any activity carried out for consideration and is liable for Service Tax
  • Manufacture means only those activities which result into change in the form of commodity and Excise Duty is levied on it
  • Sale means those activities which result into change in the ownership of the commodity and is characterised by levy of VAT or CST.

The impact of GST on Job work transactions can be better understood, only if the existing taxation aspects qua such transactions are first noted. This will enable to understand whether there is any deviation in GST vis-a-vis past laws.


Provision under Central Excise and Service Tax

A – Meaning of Job work under Central Excise

Job work is defined in Notification No. 214/86 dated 25.03.1986 and under Rule 2(n) of the Cenvat Credit Rules, 2004 – “Job work” means processing or working upon of raw materials or semi-finished goods supplied to the job worker/ so as to complete a part or whole of the process resulting in the manufacture or finishing of an article or any operation which is essential for the aforesaid process.

*Definition of the term “job work”, makes it evident the raw materials have to be supplied by another person. In Prestige Engineering India Ltd v CCE Meerut, – 1994 (9) TMI 66, the Supreme Court held that when the job worker contributed his own material to the goods supplied by the customer and engaged in manufacturing, the activity was not one of job work.


B – Job Work and Manufacture or Service

Since excise duty is on ‘manufacture’, duty liability arises only when the goods are manufactured during job work. The job work operations not amounting to manufacture would be regarded as service.


C – Liability under Central Excise and Service Tax

  • Process amount to manufacture: If the process undertaken by the job worker amounts to manufacture/ deemed manufacture as per the definition or decided case laws, the job worker would be liable to pay duty of excise on the goods so manufactured. Alternatively, the principal manufacturer who has supplied the goods for job work may furnish a declaration which exempts goods manufactured by a job worker. The goods must be used in manufacturing process by principal manufacturer which should result in a dutiable product being manufactured on which duty of excise is being charged. The activity undertaken by job worker would not be liable to service tax also as any process amounting to manufacture or production of goods is covered by Negative list.
  • Process does not amount to manufacture: Where the processing undertaken by the job worker does not amount to manufacture, the said job worker could be liable to service tax. Refer –  Mega Exemption Notification. As per the said Notification, job work in relation of any goods on which appropriate duty is payable by the principal manufacturer.


D – Valuation

Excise Duty

It was held by Supreme Court that in respect of goods manufactured on job-work basis, assessable value would be the job charges (including the profit of the job-worker if not already included in the job-charges) plus the cost of the materials used in the manufacture of the item (including the cost of the materials supplied free of cost to the job-worker).

Rule 10A had been introduced in Central Excise Valuation (Determination of Price of Excisable goods) Rule 2000, in respect of the goods produced or manufactured by Job Worker which provides for valuation as follows:

  • Goods directly sold from job worker premise:Where the goods are sold by the raw material supplier/principal manufacturer from the factory of job worker – the value would have to be the transaction value of the goods so sold by the raw material supplier/principal. This will apply only when the raw material supplier and the buyer of the goods are not related and price is the sole consideration for the sale and the goods are sold for delivery at the time of removal from the job worker’s factory.

Illustration: Let the value of raw materials supplied by principal be Rs. 1,00,000 and the job workers conversion cost be Rs. 15,000 and his profit margin be Rs. 5,000. If the principal sells the goods processed by the job worker at Rs. 1,50,000. Then assessable value would be Rs. 1,50,000 (that is the price charged by the principal for sale of the processed goods).

  • Goods not sold from job worker premise: In a case where the goods are not sold by the principal manufacturer at the time of removal of goods from the factory of job-worker, but are transferred to some other place from where the said goods are to be sold after their clearance from the factory of the job worker – the normal transaction value of such goods sold from such other place at or about the same time has to be adopted. This, in other words follows the principle of depot based valuation under Central Excise applicable where goods are cleared to depots of manufacturers and sold therefrom. Where such goods are not sold at or about the same time, then the normal transaction value of such goods at the time nearest to the time of removal of said goods from the factory of job worker is to be adopted.  The cost of transport from the premises where from the goods are sold, to the place of delivery, would not be included in assessable value.

Service Tax

Service tax would be on gross amount charged towards labour charges. Where the nature of work undertaken is works contract, value would be arrived at as per options provided under Rule 2A of Service Tax (Determination of Value) Rules, 2006.


Provisions under CST/ VAT

The levy of Sales Tax/VAT is on ‘sale’ of goods. Hence job work transactions involving pure labour would not attract levy of sales tax/VAT. When materials are supplied by principal manufacturer to job worker for the purposes of job-work, there is no sale of such goods and consequently, levy of sales tax is not attracted. In case of inter-state transfers, principal manufacturer is required to follow certain procedures for the purpose of declaring such transfers as “otherwise than for sale”. Similarly, when job-worker returns the goods to principal manufacturer, after the job work is complete, he is not liable for payment of VAT/sales tax, since such transfers would not be regarded as sale. However, if the job-work results in transfer of material from job-worker to principal manufacturer, value of material so transferred attracts VAT. Every State has its own valuation rules for determining the value of material so transferred in the course of job-work processing.

When the job worker uses materials there would be a transfer of property in goods involved and the transaction would be taxable. The taxability would depend upon the following:

  1. Material Billed separately: This would be a divisible contract in which job worker would charge the applicable VAT/CST on the materials transferred by him. He would also bill pure labour charges. In such cases the work order, purchase order or contract should be clear on the values ascribed towards the material and labour. It is advisable to keep the valuation of each of the components in such bifurcated contract near to the reality.
  2. Composite Billing: In this case the value of material would be included in the total amount. This is called works contract. The material portion would be liable to CST. The various State governments have specified some deemed deduction for labour where the works contract or cannot arrive at the actual value of goods. Eg: annual maintenance contracts.

Similarly, there could be contracts such as painting of portrait etc. in which some consumables are used. In these cases though there is a material transfer, the activity has been understood clearly to be service by the Court’s by applying dominant motive test and consequently there is no liability to charge CST.


Applicability of GST on job work

The taxable events under present laws are manufacture (Central Excise), provision of service (Service Tax) and sale (CST/VAT) respectively for applicability of different kind of taxes. Under proposed GST regime, all these concepts would lose relevance and the taxable event would only be “supply of goods” and “supply of services”.

Under the model GST Law, concept of supply is explained in Section 3. It includes all forms of supply of goods and/or services such as sale, transfer, barter, exchange, license, rental, lease or disposal. Ordinarily, ‘supply’ shall become subject matter of levy only when (i) such supply is of goods and/ or services and (ii) is made or agreed to be made in the course of or furtherance of business and (iii) is made for a consideration. However, as per section 3 read with Sr.No.5 of Schedule I, any supply of goods and/or services by a taxable person to another taxable or non-taxable person in the course of or furtherance of business would be regarded as ‘supply’ even if such supply is without any consideration. The supply of goods by a registered taxable person to a job-worker in terms of Section 43A of the Model GST Act is carved out as an exception from Sr.No.5. Section 43A, inter alia, provides a special procedure for removal of goods involved in job-work transactions, without payment of duty. The benefit of section 43A can be granted by the Commissioner only by a special order. Hence, it would be interesting to see whether such special order would be a blanket permission, specifying certain conditions and procedure, upon fulfillment of which all the taxable person are automatically entitled to benefit of section 43A, or this order shall be issued qua every taxable person separately.

There are no specific valuation provisions governing the valuation of Job-work under model GST law. “Job-work” is defined in section 2(62) to mean undertaking any treatment or process by a person on goods belonging to another registered person. Under Schedule–II, any treatment or process which is being applied to another person’s goods is regarded as a supply of service. Further, ‘works contract’ including transfer of property in goods (whether as goods or in some other form) involved in the execution of works contract is also regarded as service. Therefore, it appears that, under GST, for taxation purposes, job-work operations will be regarded as ‘supply of service’, even if they involve transfer of property in goods.

Another significant aspect that may be relevant in determining the valuation is that, in Job work transaction, there will be minimum two supplies from Job-worker to the principal namely (i) supply of services for consideration which will be in the nature of job-work charges and (ii) supply of processed goods for which there will be no consideration (since this would be only return of goods back to the principal).

This can be explained by way of an example:

Jobwork in GST Example

Party ‘A’ – Principal sent goods of Rs.1,00,000 to party ‘B’ – Job Worker for Job-work. ‘B’  did the Job-work operation on the goods received from ‘A’ and charged Rs.20,000 as his job-work charges. In the said amount of Rs.20,000 there is also included use of material amounting to Rs.5,000 procured by the job-worker and used in the job-work operation. Thereafter he transported goods back to ‘A’ at another place of business.

In this example, there are various supplies as under:

  • Supply of raw goods from ‘A’ to ‘B’
  • Supply of service from ‘B’ to ‘A’ – ‘Job work’ and/ or ‘Transportation’
  • Supply of processed goods from ‘B’ to ‘A’

Assuming that transaction is covered within section 43A, there will be no liability to pay taxes for supply of raw material from ‘A’ to ‘B’ and supply of processed goods from ‘B’ to ‘A’. However, supply of service i.e. job-work would attract tax. This appears to be a diversion from current service tax and excise provisions, where job-workers are exempted from Central excise duty as well as Service tax on their job-work charges, if the principal manufacturer pays duty on final product.

The next question is – what would be the value of service for the purpose of levy of tax? As per section 15, the value of supply of goods and/or services shall be the transaction value. “Transaction value” would mean the price actually paid or payable for the said supply services where the supplier and the recipient of supply are not related and the price is the sole consideration for the supply. Hence, in the present case Rs.20,000 would be treated as the value of service although, it includes materials worth Rs.5,000, still the entire supply including value of material would be treated as services.


Transaction  no.Is Supply ?GST Payable
Transaction 1YesYes
Transaction 1No – if approved u/s 43ANo
Transaction 2Yes (irrespective of 43 A)Yes
Transaction 3YesYes
Transaction 3No – if approved u/s 43ANo


The other provisions contained in Rule 15 which are also to be taken into account for the purpose of Valuation of Job-work Transactions are as under:

  • Royalties and license fees related to the supply of services (i.e. job–work operations) that, the recipient of supply must pay, either directly or indirectly, as a condition of the said supply is also to be included in transaction value, to the extent that such royalties and fees are not included in the price. Therefore, if ‘A’ paid certain technology transfer fees to ‘C’, so that ‘B’ can use the said technology in the job-work operation that he is performing for ‘A’, the value of such technology transfer fee may also be included in transaction value of job-work services, unless B is in a position to prove that, the impact of such technology transfer fees has already been considered in Rs20,000.
  • Further, any reimbursable expense or cost incurred by or on behalf of the supplier and charged in relation to supply of services would also form a part of transaction value of service. Therefore, for the purpose of job-work, if any material is procured by ‘A’ on behalf of ‘B’, cost of which is recovered separately from ‘B’ , then such cost may also be included in the value of service, unless B is in a position to prove that, the impact of cost of such materials has already been considered in Rs20,000.
  • No deduction from transaction value is allowed for any incentive/discount given by ‘B’ to ‘A’ after the supply has been effected, unless such discount is offered under the established agreement and is known before or at the time of supply and can be traced qua invoice raised for particular supply. Similarly, any discount given prior to supply shall not qualify for deduction from value, unless, such discount is allowed in the normal trade practice and has been duly recorded in invoice.

To conclude, the study of implications under GST law on the aspects related to valuation of job-work transactions is very crucial having regard to various issues raised above and wherever there is a scope for ambiguous situation, necessary clarification is required in the GST Act, in order to save the job work industry from possibility of litigation in future.

    We’ve a finished leather factory. Mostly, we do leather job work (semi-finished to finished).

    Now there are 2 cases:

    1. When we use our own chemicals for processing
    2. When our parties send their own chemicals for processing

    As per the guidelines to our knowledge, Leather job work GST rate is 5%. We want to confirm: if we use our own chemicals for processing, will the GST rate be 18%? (because in a way it seems to be a chemical supply also).

    If our parties are sending their own chemicals, it’ll be a pure job work (for which 5% rate is okay) but if chemicals are ours, it isn’t pure job work.

    We’ve not been able to raise invoices this month due to this confusion. Your answer to this query will be of immense help.

    Dear Sir,
    Can Job worker avail ITC ? Also job worker will face problem of working capital – as he has to pay GST & wait for 2/3
    months to get his payments ? where as Principal can enjoy ITC immediate ? How will job workers will survive ?
    Why not exemption as per previous service tax rule? As Government will be in loss as they are not getting any benefit as principal is getting ITC ? Unnecessary small job workers will be in trouble ? Regd D K Salunkhe (9822402717)
