Learn the concept of time of supply of services in GST

“Time of supply” means the “Point in Time” when the goods/services shall be considered to be supplied i.e., the time at which the liability to pay GST would accrue. Besides this, the principle of ‘Time of Supply’ is also relevant for the purpose of calculation of turnover for registration and period of exemption. GST Law has provided separate provisions to determine the time of supply of goods and time of supply of services.

Let us understand the said provision through the practical Case Scenario.
