4)) Mere supply of labour not covered –
Taxable event is transfer of property in goods. In
case of contract for supply of labour, there is no
transfer of property in goods and hence there is no
tax liability – Ashok Kumar Garg vs. UOI (2002) 128
STC 442 (P&H HC DC)* Rajiv Gumber vs. Bharat
Sanchar Nigam Ltd. (2002) 128 STC 494 (P&H HC
Thus, simple job work will not be taxable, if there are
no goods involved in the job work K V Nagarajan vs.
DCTO (2007) 5 STR 325 = 208 ELT 165 (Mad. HC
DB) – same view in K C Nagarajan vs. DCTO (2007)
7 VST 585 = 11 STT 411 (Mad. HC)
1. In case of Builders Association of India Vs. Union
of India 73 STC 370 (SC), the Supreme Court held
that the entire contract price cannot be subjected
to Sales Tax but only value of the goods in which
the property would pass during execution of
works contract can be taxed.
2. The Supreme Court in the case of Gannon
Dunkerly & Co. Vs. State of Rajasthan 88 STC 204
has observed as under:
“The value of the goods involved in the execution of
a works contract will, therefore, have to be
determined by taking into account the value of the
entire works contract and deducting therefrom the
charges towards labour and services which would
cover :
a) labour charges for execution of the works;
b) amount paid to a sub-contractor for labour and
c) charges for planning, designing and architect’s
d) charges for obtaining on hire or otherwise
machinery and tools used for execution of the
works contract;
e) cost of consumables such as water, electricity,
fuel, etc., used in the execution of the works
contract, the property in which is not
transferred in the course of execution of a
works contract; and
f) cost of establishment of the contractor, to the
extent, it is relatable to supply of labour and
g) other similar expenses relatable to supply of
labour and services;
h) profit earned by the contractor to the extent it
is relatable to supply of labour and services.
The Court further held:
“We may, however, make it clear that apart from
the deductions referred to above, it will be
necessary to exclude from the value of the works
contract, the value of the goods which are not
taxable in view of Sections 3, 4 and 5 of the Central
Sales Tax Act and goods covered by Sections 14
and 15 of the Central Sales Tax Act as well as goods
which are exempt from tax under the Sales Tax
legislation of the State. The value of goods involved
in the execution of a works contract will have to be
determined after making these deductions and
exclusions from the value of the works contract”.
3. “Sale price” under Section 2(24) of, the GVAT Act
means, “the amount of valuable consideration
received or receivable by a dealer for sale of any
goods. In respect of works contract, under subclause (b), “sale price” means the amount arrived
at by deducting from the amount of valuable
consideration paid or payable to a person for the
execution of such works contract, the amount
representing labour charges for such execution.”
(Emphasis Supplied)
4. Section 2(30) of the GVAT Act, 2003 defines
“taxable turnover” in respect of works contracts as
“turnover of all sales or purchases of a dealer
during the prescribed period in any year, which
remains after deducting therefrom, the charges
towards labour, service and other like charges, and
subject to such conditions as may be prescribed.”
(Emphasis Supplied)
5. Normally, the contractor will be in a position to
furnish the necessary material to establish the
expenses that were incurred under the aforesaid
heads of deduction for labour and services. But
there may be cases where the contractor has not
maintained proper accounts or the accounts
maintained by him are not found to be worthy of
credence by the assessing authority. In that event,
a question would arise as to how the deduction
towards the aforesaid heads may be made
6. Rule 18AA of the GVAT Rules, 2006, inserted w.e.f.
11/10/2006 refers to the deductions and the
conditions thereto, in respect of charges towards
labour, service, etc. [as provided under Section
2(30)]. The provisions of this Rule are as follows :
“(1) The value of the goods shall be determined by
deducting the amounts paid by way of price for subcontract made with a registered dealer, if any,
pertaining to the said works contract.
(2) A registered dealer who claims any deduction
for labour, services and other like charges shalli. maintain true and correct records for such
ii. prove to the satisfaction of the Commissioner
that he has actually paid the amount in the
year in which he claims such deduction; and
iii. furnish true and correct evidences for claiming
such deductions at the time of assessment or
when asked to furnish in any proceedings:
Provided that where the amount of charges
towards labour, service and other like charges are
not ascertainable or the accounts maintained by the
contractor are not sufficiently clear or intelligible, a
lump sum deduction is admissible at prescribed
(3) The percentage shown in the Table shall be applied
after first deducting from the total contract price,
the amount paid by way of price for the entire subcontract made with sub-contractor, if any.”
7)Only one taxable event even when work is done
by sub-contractor
In Larsen & Toubro Ltd. vs. State of Andhra
Pradesh (2006) 148 STC 616 (AP C DB), it was
held that
“Sub-contractor acts only as agent of Contractor.
Hence, there is only one taxable event. Property in
goods directly passes on to the contractee. Hence,
there is only one ‘sale’. Thus, sales tax can be
collected either from contractor or sub-contractor
and not both.
This view was confirmed in State of Andhra
Pradesh vs. Larsen and Toubro (2008) 9 SCC 191=
16 STT 501 = 17 VST 1 (SC), where it was held
that main contractor is not liable to VAT on
turnover of subcontractor. There is only one
deemed sale and not two, even if subcontractor
had no privity of contract with the contractee. The
property in goods passes to owner/contractee on
its incorporation in the works contract.”
8) Taxation of Work Contract : –
Two methods are available under the GVAT Act for
determining the tax liability for a works contract.
A. As per Normal Provisions : –
In this method, tax calculations are generally
made as under.
a) First of all, labour exps., Consumables etc. are
deducted from Gross Receipts of works
contract to arrive at sale value of goods.
b) The sale value, thus derived is to be further
bifurcated according to applicable tax rates
say 5% or 15% etc.
c) The aforesaid bifurcation of sale value
according to tax rates is generally done on the
basis of purchases of goods, by segregating
the same rate wise.
d) In such segregated rate wise purchase costs,
freight exps. if any, are added.
e) In cost of goods so arrived, Gross Profit is
added to arrive at value of goods sold.
f) From value of goods sold, so derived, ratewise separately, actual tax liability is worked
out. This is known as “Output Tax”.
g) From the aforesaid “Output Tax” liability,
Input Tax Credit (ITC) admissible to the
dealer on his purchases of goods is deducted.
h) The Difference between Output Tax & Input
Tax Credit is the actual tax payable by a
Dealer. If such difference is negative, meaning
thereby that, Input Tax Credit is more than
Output Tax, the excess is to be carried
forward to next tax period to be adjusted
against future liability.
The GVAT Act, 2003 also provides an optional
scheme for payment of lump sum tax by way of
composition in respect of works contracts under
Section 14A read with Rule 28.
i. Composition qua contract :
The contractor may opt for composition qua
each contract separately. Accordingly, a
contractor may opt for Composition scheme
for same contracts & may not opt for the same
for other contracts. The contractor is required
to apply for composition within 30 days from
the beginning of the contract to the
jurisdictional officer in Form 214. The
permission for composition shall be granted
in Form 215 within fifteen working days,
which will be effective from the date of the
beginning of the contract and till its
ii. Composition qua year in case of “ongoing
works contracts”:
As per the amendments carried out w.e.f.
11/10/2006, the contractor can also apply for
composition for all contracts executed during
a financial year. Application for permission is
required to be made to the jurisdictional officer
in Form 214A within thirty days before the
commencement of the year. In case of new
dealers registered after 01/04/2006, the
application will have to be made within 90 days
(30 days upto 21/05/2007) of the date of
Registration. Permission will be granted by the
officer in Form 215A within fifteen working
days form the date of receipt of the application
and shall be effective from the beginning of the
year. W.e.f 01/04/2008, the dealer under this
category need not file fresh application every
year. The permission earlier granted will
continue to be valid.
iv. The composition amount is payable by the
dealer on full amount received in respect of
those contracts for which permission for
composition has been granted after deducting
the amount paid by way of price for entire
sub-contract, if any, made with the subcontractor. So excepting the payments to sub
contractors, no other deductions whatsoever
including for labour etc. will be admissible for
determining liability for composition amount
which is payable on Gross receipts only, after
making deduction for price payable to sub
A contractor who is permitted to pay lump sum
tax shall not,
a) Claim tax credit in respect of tax paid by him
on his purchases,
b) Charge any tax in his sales bill or sales
invoice in respect of the works contract and
c) Issue tax invoice to the contractee in respect
of the works contract.
vi. A contractor who is permitted to pay lump sum
tax is also liable in addition to composite
amount to pay purchase tax on purchases from
unregistered dealers under provisions of Sec.
9(1) and (3).
vii. The contractor is not permitted w.e.f.
11/10/2006, to use the goods in the

trade or commerce or imported from
outside the territory of India, or
b) Received from his branch situated outside
the State or from his consigning agent
outside the State;
viii. Contractor opting for yearly composition for
“ongoing works contracts” is not permitted to
dispatch goods to his branch situated outside the
State or to his consigning agent outside the State.
ix. All taxable goods used in the execution of works
contract covered under the permission to pay
lump sum tax, ought to have borne the tax
payable under the GVAT Act, 2003;
x. The option exercised under this rule shall be final
and is irrevocable.
xi. Misc. Sales like Sales of gunny bags, scrap etc. will
be chargeable at normal rate & not at the rate of
composition, even in case of having opted for

b) “specified sale price” means the amount of valuable
consideration paid or payable for the works contract

prescribed time, then in that case, the person shall not
be liable for deduction of equal amount of tax from
the payment of specified sale price to the contractor.
e) Where a contractor or Sub-contractor is not liable to pay
tax under the provisions of the Act, such contractor or
sub-contractor may apply to the Commissioner to issue

 In K Raheja Development Corporation v. State of
Karnataka AIR 2005 SC 2350=(2005) 5 SCC 162= 2
STT 178 =141 STC 298 = 3 STR 337 (SC), it was held
that definition of ‘works contract’ in Karnataka Sales
Tax Act is wide. It is not restricted to ‘works contract’
as commonly understood. It was held that the
developer would be liable to pay tax on the works
contract. However, if the agreement is entered into
after the flat or unit is already constructed, there
would be no works contract.
Decision in K Raheja’s case doubted by subsequent
bench of SC – Decision of SC in case of Raheja
Development Corporation has been doubted in Larsen
and Toubro vs. State of Karnataka(2008) 16 STT
286=17 VST 460 (SC). It was observed that if ratio of
K Raheja Development Corporation is accepted, there
would be no difference between works contract and a
contract for sale of chattel as a chattel. With these
observations, the matter had been referred to a Larger
In Assotech Realty v. State of UP (2007) 10 STT 36=8 VST
738=7STR 129 (All. HC DB) and ATS Infrastructure v.
State of UP [ WP decided on 6-12-2006 – see 9 STT 68
(Mag.)(All. HC DB)], it has been held that builders
booking apartments before completion of construction
of the apartments and receiving advance or part
payment are not liable to pay Vat/ Sales tax under
Works Contract, if right, title and interest in the
construction remains with the builder ( and is passed to
buyer only after construction is over).
L&T Ltd & Anr. vs. State of Karnataka & Oth(2013)65 VST 1
Dominant Nature test has no Application. Even if the
dominant intention of the contract is not to transfer the
property in goods and rather it is the rendering of service or
the ultimate transaction is transfer of immovable property,
then also it is open to the States to levy sales tax on the
materials used in such contract if it otherwise has the
elements of a works contract.
Definition takes within its fold all genre of works contract
including building contract. –– The term “works contract” in
article 366(29A)(b) is amply wide and cannot be confined to a
particular understanding of the term or to a particular form.
The term “work contract” in article 366(29A)(b) takes within
its fold all genre of works contract and is not restricted to one
specie of contract to provide for labour and services alone.
The value of the goods has to be the value of the goods at the
time of incorporation of the goods in the works even though
the property passes as between the developer and the flat
purchaser after incorporation of goods. The mode of valuation
of goods provided in rule 58(1A) of the Maharashtra Value
Added Rules, 2005 has to be read in the manner that meets
this criteria.
The activity of construction undertaken by the developer
would be a works contract only from the stage the developer
enters into a contract with the flat purchaser. The value
addition made to the goods transferred after the agreement is
entered into with the flat purchaser alone can be made
chargeable to tax by the State Government.
If at the time of construction and until the construction was
completed, there was no contract for construction of the
building with the flat purchaser, the goods used in the
construction cannot be deemed to have been sold by the
builder since at the time there is no purchaser.
Builder Model:(Land owned by Builder, - De Facto & De Jure owner)
- L&T Ltd & Anr. vs. State of Karnataka & Oth(2013)65 VST 1
- Liability for Purchase tax on Unregistered Dealer
- Builder is a “Dealer” & hence, liable to be registered
even if, Not liable to pay tax
- OGS/Import Purchases Permissible if not under
composite scheme.
Renting of Properties:Liable to Service tax & No liability under VAT laws
Transfer of Right to use Goods:Amounts to “Sale” – Liable to VAT – No ITC for Vat paid on
goods let out.
