XYZ (Manufacturer) is exporting goods under LUT to a customer in Egypt. For releasing the documents against exports made, they need to take a certificate from Egypt Embassy situated in India. XYZ is paying to Egypt Embassy for such certificate and the amount paid is recovered from the customer in Egypt in foreign currency by issuing a separate Tax Invoice for supply of service under the head ‘Documentation Charges’. Is XYZ required to pay GST on the amount recovered?
