Time of Supply for transaction between artist and gallery
08 April 2020
What would be the time of supply in case a painter gives his paintings to a gallery. If the painting is sold the gallery keeps a certain sum for itslef and the rest is given to the painter, and if it is not sold then the painting is given back to the painter. The gallery only recognizes an income if a painting is sold. It doesn't charge a commission for only displaying the painting.
How should the transaction between the painter & the gallery be recognized ?
Is it a supply of goods or services? Should it be treated on Goods on Approval Basis?
Please suggest regarding the same.
