As per this amendment passed by the GST Council, the liability of GST payment in reference to the advance tax received for supply of goods has been removed. What this actually means that no tax liability will arise in case any advance is received by any supplier of goods.
This facility to not pay GST on Advance Received is available to the supplier of goods. Following people are not included in the relief granted I the exemption notification:
