Bill of supply.-

A bill of supply is a document of transaction that is different from a normal tax invoice. These bills do not contain any tax amount, as input tax cannot be charged in these cases.

A bill of supply is issued in cases when a registered person is a supplier of exempted goods/services, OR, if they have opted to pay GST under the composition scheme.  In either of these cases, the registered person cannot charge GST to the buyer, and hence there is no tax amount listed on the bill.

A bill of supply referred to in clause (c) of sub-section (3) of section 31 shall be issued by the supplier containing the following details, namely,-

  1. name, address and Goods and Services Tax Identification Number of the   supplier;
  2. a consecutive serial number not exceeding sixteen characters, in one or multiple series, containing alphabets or numerals or special characters - hyphen or dash and slash symbolised as “-” and “/” respectively, and any combination thereof, unique for a financial year;
  3. date of its issue;
  4. name, address and Goods and Services Tax Identification Number or Unique Identity Number, if registered, of the recipient;
  5. Harmonised System of Nomenclature Code for goods or services;
  6. description of goods or services or both;
  7. value of supply of goods or services or both taking into account discount or abatement, if any; and
  8. signature or digital signature of the supplier or his authorised   representative:

Provided that the provisos to rule 46 shall, mutatis mutandis, apply to the bill of supply issued under this rule:

Provided further that any tax invoice or any other similar document issued under any   other Act for the time being in force in respect of any non-taxable supply shall be treated    as a bill of supply for the purposes of the   Act.
