The person doing the job work is called job worker.

Example:

  1. If a cloth manufacturer sends fabric to another person for fabrication, printing, fixing button etc. then this activity will be considered as job work within the meaning of section 2(68) of CGST Act.
  2. In an another example, when a papad manufacturer sends raw material to several household ladies, and in return receives papad, same will also be considered as job work.

Maximum time limit for which goods can be sent on job work?

As per Section 143(1) of CGST Act, the principal has got limited time of one year for inputs and three year for capital goods to either bring back the goods back to the place of principal or to supply the goods directly from the place of job worker.

Period of one year or three years shall be reckoned from the original date, when the same were originally sent by principal to job worker.

Exceptions where time limit of one year / three year as prescribed in section 143 is not applicable?

There are certain tools/items on which condition of bringing back the goods is not applicable e.g. moulds and dies, jigs and fixtures, or other tools etc which are required to perform job work.

Conditions for direct supply of goods by the principal from the place of job worker?

Any principal shall not supply goods from the place of job worker unless the principal declares the place of business of the job worker as his additional place of business except where the job worker is registered under section 25 or where the principal is engaged in the supply of such goods as may be notified by the Commissioner.

Extension of time limit as prescribed in section 143?

The above period may, on sufficient cause being shown, be extended by the Commissioner for a further period not exceeding one year and two years respectively.

Consequences if goods are not retuned back or supplied by the principal within the time limit as prescribed in Section 143 of CGST Act?

As per Section 143(3), 143(4) of CGST Act and Rule 45(4) of CGST Rules, where the inputs or capital goods are not returned back to the principal place or not supplied by the principal directly from the place of job worker within the time stipulated in section 143, it shall be deemed that such inputs or capital goods had been supplied by the principal to the job worker on the day when the said inputs or capital goods were sent out and the said supply shall be declared in FORM GSTR-1 by the principal and the principal shall be liable to pay the tax along with applicable interest.

We undertake Jobwork for pharma products. At what Value shall the we as Jobworker send the goods back to the Principle.

We charge only Labour charges for the job work done. We send goods on delivery challan along with the Inv of job charges. And the ewaybill is created by our Principle on our Job charges. Is this correct

Hi,

Taxable value of goods is required in every challan as per GST law.

Eway bill is for movement of goods and can be created by either party.

Further analysis requires case study, which is on chargeable basis. If you wish to avail our services, please contact our team.
