Taking a gander at the market today, one will see regularly, at least two products, or a mix of merchandise and ventures, are provided together. This could be because of both of the accompanying reasons:

• A deals technique – to pull in more clients

• The nature or sort of goods or serviceswhich obliges them to be packaged or provided together

Under Service Tax, this instrument is called Bundled Service – which is the rendering of aservice or services with another component of service or services.

Under the reexamined display draft GST law, supplies which are packaged or bundled with at least two supplies of goods or services or blend of goods or services are grouped, with particular qualities, as:

Mixed supply

The supply of at least two individual supplies of goods or services,or any blend of o goods and services, by an assessable individual, at a solitary cost also referred as a single price, is called Mixed Supply

In Mixed Supply, the mix of goods and services /or services are not packaged because of common necessities, and they can be provided independently in the customary course of business.

Determining mixed supply

To illustrate, let us take a hypothetical case to comprehend this case.

Consider a unit which contains a tie, a watch, a wallet, and a pen, as a combo, for Rs. 4,500

According to the illustration,

• Tie, watch, wallet, and pen are packaged as a unit

• The supply of a tie does not normally require the supply of different components (watch, wallet, and pen) and the other way around.

• The unit is provided at a solitary cost.

Consequently, the supply of this pack is a blended or a mixed supply.

Tax liability on mixed supply

To figure the tax liability on mixed supply, the assessment rate material on the goods or services drawing in the highest rate of duty, in the mix of goods or services, will be considered.

Let us comprehend the case of the unit once more.

For this situation, the watch draws in the most elevated or highest rate of a tax in the mixed supply i.e., 18%. Consequently, the mixed supply will be burdened at 18%.

Composite supply

Composite Supply ofgoods and services is made by an assessable individual to a beneficiary, and:

•  It involves at least two supplies of merchandise or benefits, or

• A blend of goods and services, which are actually packaged and provided, in the customary course of business.

This implies the goods and services are packaged attributable to normal necessities. The components in a composite supply of goods and services are reliant components on the 'central supply' of products or administrations.

What is principal supply?

The pre-predominant component in the supply of goods and services, framing some portion of composite supply, is central supply, and whatever other dependent supply, shaping some portion of composite supplies, are auxiliary to principal supply.

Determination of Composite Supply

To illustrate,

1. A 5-star inn in Mumbai gives a 4 days/3 evenings bundle, with breakfast.

This is a composite supply as the package of accommodation facilities and breakfast is natural combination in the ordinary course of business for a hotel. For this situation, hotel accommodation is the important supply, and breakfast is subordinate to the lodging convenience.

2.  A 5-star lodging in Mumbai gives a 4 day/3 evenings bundle with the breakfast and one day Mumbai Darshan.

The consideration of Mumbai Darshan in this bundle is not a characteristic essential to accommodation in the hotel. Consequently, this does not add up to composite supply. This is a mixed supply.

3. Offer of portable PC with pack - this is a composite supply since tablet sack is common essential to convey the tablet. In any case, if the client chooses a multipurpose bag like backpack bag, it is not a composite supply since it is not normally packaged.

Tax liability of composite supply

For reason for computing tax liability, the rate of tax applicable on the important supply of such goods and services be affected on the composite supply.

To illustrate,

A 5-star hotel in Mumbai gives a 4 days/3 evenings bundle with the breakfast. Let us assume, the hotel accommodation draws in 18% tax and the eatery benefit or restraint service pulls in 12% duty.

According to the illustration, hotel accommodation is the primary supply, and the whole supply will be taxed at 18%.

It is critical for organizations to take a look at the sorts of supplies made by them and re-survey them keeping in mind the end goal to accomplish the targets of packaging the goods and services, in setting with the ideas of mixed supply and composite supply.
