The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) has issued an order clarifying that the intra-State suppliers of goods and services to whom the composition scheme is extended shall issue a tax invoice under the GST regime.

As per the notification, the central tax, on the intra-State supply of goods or services or both shall be levied at the rate of 6 percent subject to the conditions.

Under section 31(3) of the Central Goods and Services Tax Act, 2017, a registered person supplying exempted goods or services or both or paying tax under the provisions of section 10 shall issue, instead of a tax invoice, a bill of supply, and therefore any person not covered by the said clause has to issue a tax invoice.
