On analyzing the term “supply” under Section 7 of the CGST Act, 2017; the relevant part of the said provision reads as under:

All forms of supply of goods or services or both, such as sale, transfer, barter, exchange, license, rental, lease or disposal made or agreed to be made for a consideration by a person in the course or furtherance of business. From the above provision, one can conclude that to constitute a “supply” following elements are required to be satisfied:-

It should be made in the course or furtherance of business

There should be some consideration involved

Apparently, it seems that gifts do not fall under supply but before reaching at the final conclusion we need to analyze the same in depth and, therefore, we need to refer to some other provisions under the Act. The provision related to availability of ITC on gifts has been dealt with at two specific places under the GST Law. Under Section 17 (5) (h) of CGST Act, 2017 the relevant provision of the said provision specifies that:

Notwithstanding anything contained in sub-section (1) of Section 16 and subsection (1) of Section 18, input credit shall not be available in respect to the following namely:-

“Goods lost, stolen, destroyed, written off or disposed of by way of gift or free samples.”

So you have to reverse ITC on such machine not to pay tax...

GST not applicable for the said Gift.
But, You can reverse the Input Tax for the Machinery related in case it's purchased in GST regime.

It is deemed supply (if no consideration received from son) as it is transaction b/w 2 related parties as per schedule I. The invoice can be raised at any value if the son is eligible for ITC as per Rule 28 of CGST Rules.

The father has 2 options:

1. Reverse ITC as per sec 17(5) of CGST Act an amount calculated as per sec 18 of CGST Act; or

2. Pay GST on value determined on reasonable basis to avoid dispute

I agreed & Thanks to Your view Mr CA Haritha Komma.,

 

Here no more activity as Supply. If it's treated as supply then Father can make as per above view.

But., Father given its as GIFT. If gift then no need to take any of the supplies related activities under GST. In case the Machinery purchased under GST by Father then the INPUT TAX will reversible...

Condition for GST levy

1. There is a taxable incident of Supply of Goods  in the course of or for continuance of business from one person to another person assuming distinct person (ie separate GST registration ) - satisfied

2. No Consideration is free of cost...- not satisfied.

However for transaction between related parties for no consideration or lesser consideration GST is still applicable. The term related party includes members of the same family.Now since it is sale between RP, the Valuation to be done for gift transaction as per the valuation guidelines.

You will not be required to pay GST on that gift. The simple reason is that GST is applied on a particular goods and services at the time of purchase. And as you have said that it is gifted to you from your father, that means your father has already purchased that machine. And later on no GST tax is going to applied that machine. But yes as already many of the persons has said, if the machinery had purchased with GST calculation, an input tax will be reversible.

In my Opinion it would be treated as supply as per section 7 read with schedule I and valuation will be as per proviso 2 of rule 28 ie the invoice value.Moreover the son is eligible to take ITC of tax paid. This will be more conservative approach to avoid litigation in future.

The all the provisions will be follow or attract if its' to SALE. But, Not applicable for GIFT...

the term “supply” under Section 7 of the CGST Act, 2017;  as Supply following elements are required to be satisfied:-

-- It's should be made in the course or furtherance of busines

-- There should be some consideration involved.

So, It's not furtherance of Business...

In the same way ;

Under Section 17 (5) (h) of CGST Act, 2017 the relevant provision of the said provision specifies that:

Notwithstanding anything contained in sub-section (1) of Section 16 and subsection (1) of Section 18, input credit shall not be available in respect to the following namely:-

“Goods lost, stolen, destroyed, written off or disposed of by way of gift or free samples.”

 

As per above GST not applicable and the said ITC will be reversible if it's given s GIFT. In case it's sale proceeds then GST applicable.
