GST Council may clarify on GST implications on ice cream parlors
Earlier ice cream parlor owners had sent a petition to the Finance Ministry, seeking clarity, after receiving tax summons from GST authorities.
BusinessLine reported that a senior official from the finance ministry said that ” The matter is expected to be placed before the GST council. Based on its recommendation, will issue clarification”.
The GST council headed by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in a meeting in Lucknow on September 17 took several decisions. One was regarding the differentiation between restaurants and ice cream parlors, this decision made clear that ice cream parlors already manufacture ice cream and supply of ice cream by parlors would attract GST at the rate of 18 percent.
