CBEC Press Releases 2017 (Date/ Particulars)
CBEC clarifies whether the gifts and perquisites provided/ supplied by companies to their employees will be taxed under the GST regime. Accordingly, Gifts, by an employer to his employee, having aggregate value of upto Rs 50,000/- per year, are outside the ambit of GST, i.e. exempt from GST. However, gifts above that threshold, made without consideration, are subject to GST, when made in the course/ furtherance of business. Further, any services provided free of charge, to all the employees by the employer, will not be subjected to GST, provided appropriate GST was paid when procured by the employer.
