Term clearing house under GST

Meaning of term clearing house under GST


The details about term clearing house are explained here. 


Clearing house:

A clearing house is a financial institution organized mostly by banks to exchange cheques ("checks" in American English) and payments. It should not be confused with central counterparty clearing (CCP) which also provides clearing services, but very differently by taking on the settlement risks of the counterparties (member banks and broker-dealers).

Clearing houses were formed to facilitate transactions among banks. Imagine a city with ten banks. Clients of each bank deposit checks daily drawn on any of the ten banks. Those drawn on the same bank as the depositor are easily processed. But cheques drawn on the other banks need to be presented to each bank in order to receive payments. All ten banks might have messengers taking cheques to the others, and waiting for payment. That would be long and cumbersome. Clearing houses solve this problem.
