Record Courier Services to Places Outside India (Supplies under Section 7 of IGST Act)

In 2018, the IGST Act was amended and a change was introduced through this amendment: "if the transportation of goods is to a place outside India, the place of supply for such goods will be the place of destination of such goods". This implies that such supplies (of goods outside India) will be treated as Interstate and attract IGST irrespective of the location of buyer.

For example: If courier agency and sender of courier are both located in Karnataka (local) but if the courier is going outside India, IGST is to be charged.

This change got notified through Notification No.01/2019 issued on 29th January 2019 and made effective from 1st February 2019.

In release 6.6.3 and later versions, you can mark such transactions as supplies under section 7 of IGST Act. This will enable Tally.ERP 9 to include the invoice in GST returns under relevant tables. When you don't flag such invoices they are considered as exceptions due to altered nature of transaction and are not included in the returns. Further, you can set an invoice as supplies under section 7 of IGST while resolving the exceptions in GSTR-1, GSTR-3B, and Annual Computation.

However, this provision is not available in release 6.6.2 and earlier versions where you can accept such transactions as is, and view the values in the relevant tables of GSTR-1, GSTR-3B, and Annual Computation.
