In previous articles, we discussed the types of invoices under GST. In few cases under the GST regime, the supplier will not be required to charge GST, hence a bill of supply is to be issued and in this article, we will discuss the applicability of a bill of supply under GST. A bill of supply is different than a regular tax invoice.
A bill of supply is issued by a registered person when he or she is restricted to charge tax by GST law. A bill of supply can be issued in the case of a registered person supplying exempted goods or services or they have opted to pay GST under composition scheme. In the bill of supply, taxes cannot be collected from the purchaser of goods or services.
