Facts:  M/s Jaimin Engineering Private Limited is engaged in construction of cold storages at various parts of the Country. They are expecting to do some construction work in the state of Rajasthan whereas they are located in the State of Gujarat and registered there in GST. As per GST provisions every supplier is required to take registration in each State where he has a place of business. Here they have place of business in Gujarat and are duly registered there. They will be charging IGST on their activity in Rajasthan making it a place of supply. The State share of that IGST will go to the State of Rajasthan as it is the place of supply. The taxpayer believes that he is not required to take registration in the State of Rajasthan.

Issue involved: Whether registration is required in the State of Rajasthan where the activity is to be undertaken?

Held: The Hon’ble AAR of Rajasthan vide Advance Ruling No. RAJ/AAR/2018-19/07 dated July 20, 2018 held that a supplier of service will have to register at the location from where he makes taxable supplies or is supplying taxable services if his aggregate turnover in a financial year exceeds twenty lakh rupees (ten lakh rupees in any of special category states).
