Introduction:

RCM on rent of Motor Vehicle was notified w.e.f. 01/10/2019 through notification no. 22/2019 CGST(rate) dated 30-09-2019. Later due to some confusion amendments and clarifications are introduced on 31/12/2019 through Notification No. 29/2019- CGST(Rate) and Circular No. 130/2019. A detailed study of the topic is as follows:

Definition:

Renting meaning: Word Renting has not been defined under the GST Act but we can understand this with followings:

As per Cambridge Dictionary: "a fixed amount of money that you pay regularly for the use of a room, house, car, television, etc. that someone else owns"

As per Oxford Dictionary: "the amount of money that you pay to use something for a particular period of time"

Reverse Charge (RCM) on Renting of Motor Vehicle

Passenger Transportation service: Passenger transportation services & means conventional public transit service which operates on a fixed route and is available to the public for a fare, intercity bus transportation, vanpools, subscription buses, tour and charter bus transportation, bus transportation of pupils for educational purposes, taxicabs licensed to conduct business in a municipality, air and rail passenger transportation except for air charter services, and special transportation services for the elderly or persons with disabilities.

Motor Vehicles: As per GST act Section 2(76): shall have the same meaning as assigned to it in clause (28) of section 2 of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988;

As per Motor Vehicles Section 2(28): "motor vehicle" or "vehicle" means any mechanically propelled vehicle adapted for use upon roads whether the power of propulsion is transmitted thereto from an external or internal source and includes a chassis to which a body has not been attached and a trailer; but does not include a vehicle running upon fixed rails or a vehicle of a special type adapted for use only in a factory or in any other enclosed premises or a vehicle having less than four wheels fitted with engine capacity of not exceeding 1 [twenty-five cubic centimeters];

Service provider: other than Body corporate charging GST @5%

 

Service Recipient: Body Corporate in the taxable territory

Example: XYZ Company enter into contract with Mr. Satish proprietor of Indian cab services for receiving services of renting of motor vehicle for it’s employees. Mr. Satish is charging Rs. 50,000+5% of GST for the services.

In the above example, XYZ is liable to pay GST under RCM.
