GST on renting of Immovable Property

Renting of Residential Immovable Property
For commercial use:
The CGST Act, 2017 provides for certain activities to be treated as supply of goods or supply of services and Section 7 which defines the scope of expression “supply” provides that that activities specified in the said Schedule II would also be covered within the scope of “supply”.
Clause 2(b) in Schedule II of the Act states that any lease or letting out of the building including a commercial, industrial or residential complex for business or commerce, either wholly or partly, is a supply of services.
Therefore, as per the above clause, renting of residential dwelling for commercial use is a service and thus will be liable for taxation under GST at 18%.
For residential use:
Service Tax Exemption of services by way of renting of residential dwelling for use as residence will continue to be exempt in GST as decided by the GST Council.

  1. I want to express appreciation to the writer just for rescuing me from this particular dilemma. Right after looking out through the world-wide-web and seeing views which were not beneficial, I figured my life was done. Existing without the presence of approaches to the difficulties you have sorted out all through your main article is a serious case, and ones that might have adversely affected my career if I hadn’t discovered your blog post. That capability and kindness in dealing with all the stuff was excellent. I don’t know what I would've done if I hadn't come upon such a step like this. I can also at this point look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for your expert and sensible guide. I will not think twice to refer GST News Updates to any individual who would like counseling on this matter.
