E-Way Bill Provisions for Job Work

Calendars lying on the desks have flipped to welcome the February month. E-way bill system will be rolled out from 1st February, making the life for tax evaders even more difficult.

E-way bill is a document which has details like name of consigner and consignee, their GSTIN numbers (if they are registered), description and value of goods in the consignment and transport details.

E-way bill has to be generated before initiating the movement of goods, and the transporter needs to carry it along with invoice during the movement of goods.

Cases where e-way bill has to be issued

E-way bill has to be issued in case of –

  1. Supply
  2. Reasons other than supply (including job work)

Thus, if goods are sent for job work or received back from the job worker, the e-way bill has to be issued. Our today’s blog throws some light on the concept of job work, e-way bill issuance, and documents to be carried during movement of goods.

What is job work?

Job work is an integral part of several sectors since many businesses outsource a part of their manufacturing activities. Job work can include initial processing, further processing, assembling, packing or any other completion process.

Section 2(68) of CGST Act describes job work as a treatment or process undertaken by a person on goods belonging to another registered person.

GST on Job Work: Scenarios that may arise

There are certain scenarios that may happen related to job work –

  1. Inputs are sent by principal to the job worker
  2. Inputs are sent to the job worker directly from the vendor
  3. Inputs are received back by the principal after job work completion
  4. Finished goods are directly supplied to the customer from the job worker

The principal is eligible to claim input tax credit of (semi-finished goods/ raw materials) for job work. He can claim the input tax credit of the inputs even if they are sent to the job worker directly from the place of the vendor.

In both the cases, inputs must be received back by the principal within 1 year, else the input tax credit will be reversed.

Issuing e-way bills in case of job work

If the principal is located in a different state, and he is sending the goods to job worker who is located in another state, the principal has to generate the e-way bill compulsorily.

Threshold limit of Rs. 50,000 doesn’t apply in this case, hence even if the value of goods sent to job worker is less than Rs. 50,000, the principal has to generate the e-way bill.

E-way bill for goods returned after job work

Once the job work has been completed on goods, the principal can either receive back the goods or can ask the job worker to supply the goods directly to the customers.

If the job worker is registered on e-way bill portal, he will generate e-way bill for the movement of goods, and if he isn’t registered, the principal has to generate the e-way bill.

For supplying the goods directly from the place of job worker to the customers, it is necessary that –

  1. Job worker should be registered u/s 25 or,
  2. The principal should declare the place of job worker as his additional place of business.

In this case also, if the job worker is registered, he will issue the e-way bill otherwise the principal has to issue the e-way bill and provide it the transporter.

Document to be issued before sending goods for Job Work

If goods are sent for job work, there is no need to issue any tax invoice. Instead, a delivery challan can be issued for the goods. Delivery challan will contain following details –

  1. Date and number of the delivery challan,
  2. Name, address, and GSTIN of the consignor (principal) and the consignee (Job Worker). GSTIN has to be mentioned if the consignor/ consignee is registered under GST.
  3. HSN code and description of the goods,
  4. Quantity
  5. Taxable Value
  6. Tax rate and tax amount
  7. Place of supply, if there is inter-state movement of goods,
  8. Signature

Documents to be carried by the transporter during movement

During the movement of goods, the transporter needs to carry following documents –

  • E-way bill copy
  • Delivery Challan
  • Invoice Copy (if the goods are directly sent to the job worker from the vendor’s place

  1. While sending the goods for job work the eway bill has to be for the amt of material sent…. say 1,00,000.

    Post finishing say the jobwork amounted to 5000.

    Who should generate the eway bill and for what amt when both are registered dealers

  2. WHILE SENDING THE GOODS BACK TO THE PRINCIPAL, AFTER JOB WORK
    1- WHICH TRANSACTION TYPE WILL JOB WORK CHOOSE IN EWB?
    2- WHICH DOCUMENT TYPE WILL HE CHOOSE, INVOICE OR DELIVERY CHALLAN? IF HE CHOOSES INVOICE, THEN THE VALUE OF INVOICE WILL ONLY CONTAINS THE JOB WORK CHARGES AND NOT THE VALUE OF GOODS AND IF HE CHOOSES DELIVERY CHALLAN THEN JOB WORK CHARGES WILL NOT COVER IT.
    3- WHAT SHOULD BE COVERED IN ITEM DETAILS? GOODS WHICH HE IS SENDING BACK TO ITS PRINCIPAL OR THE AMOUNT OF JOB WORK?

  4. a) What is the format of “Deilvery Challan” when the
    (i) job worker is returning the goods after job work to
    the principal.
    (ii) job worker is sending the goods after job work
    to another job worker.
    b) How to ascertain Taxable Value, Tax Rate & Tax
    Amount when the job worker is issuing a delivery
    challan? For ex. Taxable Value of goods is Rs.100000 and the value of Job is just Rs.10000 moreover say tax rate for the goods is 18% and for the job it is 5%.
    c) How to create an E-way bill for the above mentioned scenarios.
