In this blog, we look at a query on taxation of training and recruitment services provided by a start-up.
We are a startup and provide Training, Recruitment and Contracting people to Software Services companies in India.
- Is there any concessions for a start up?
- What are the rates for the above three?
Given that the business is engaged in supply of services:
- There are no concessions specific to start-ups under the GST law. While the composition scheme is available to persons whose aggregate turnover in a year does not exceed Rs.75 lakhs, the scheme is only restricted to suppliers of goods.
- The rates for the 3 categories of services provided by you are as follows:
- Training: 18% -- 999293 Other education and training services and educational support services: commercial training and coaching services
Recruitment: 18% -- 99851 Employment services including personnel search, referral service and labour supply service
(6th digit code may be identified from the Schedule annexed to Notification No. 11 on Central Tax Rates, based on the applicability)
Contracting staff: 18% -- 998513 Employment services including personnel search, referral service and labour supply service: Contract staffing services
