REVERSE CHARGE MECHANISM (RCM)
ON SECURITY SERVICES

Previously under Service Tax, Security Services were taxable under RCM. Under Goods and Service Tax Act, it was taxable @ 18% as it was out of scope of RCM.

From 1 st January 2019 onwards, there are amendments made in GST rates.

According to the changes made, Security Service Provider (other than company) has been exempted from GST liability. This has made the Security Services taxable under RCM which implies that a registered Security Service Receiver will have to bear the tax liability.

Provisions applicable to Service Provider-

 

 Service provider (other than company) is not liable to pay GST on

services provided to a registered person.

 Service provider will not issue tax invoice instead he will issue “Bill of  Supply”.

 

Provisions applicable to Service Receiver-

 Service receiver liable to pay GST under RCM if services received from Security Service Provider (other than company).

 Service receiver can claim ITC for the same.

In case if the service provider is a company, Service Provider will be liable to pay

GST @ 18%.
