All you need to know about Delivery Challan
GST came and with it came a pool of new rules and provisions and it’s high time that we not only understand these rules and provisions but also get used to them. One of such provisions is a Delivery Challan, which is used at the time of movement of goods and services.
What is a Delivery Challan
When transfer or movement of goods and services take place between supplier and receiver but this transfer does not result in a sale or the payment against these goods and services is due, then in such cases delivery challan is issued instead of tax invoice.
Generally when the transfer of goods and services take place which results in actual sale and payment is made then a tax invoice is issued. But when such transfer does not result in an immediate sale then instead of a tax invoice a delivery challan is issued.
A delivery challan is issued by the supplier of the goods and services.
When a delivery challan should be Issued
A delivery challan is to be issued in the following cases:
- Supply of goods for job work.
- Supply of liquid gas where the quantity of the supply is unknown.
- Movement of goods for reason other than the way of supply.
- Other supplies as and when notified by Board.
On actual sale of goods, the supplier is required to issue a tax invoice.
