Sale of Capital Goods under GST-

To get detail information, you may refer following GST act-   

  • Schedule II CGST Act, Para 4 (a)
  • Schedule I CGST Act, Para 1
  • Section 18 (6) of CGST Act
  • Rule 44 CGST Rules

Valuation of Tax payable on Capital Goods:

Where ITC has been availed on Capital Goods:

Section 18 (6) of CGST Act:-

In case of supply of capital goods or plant and machinery, on which input tax credit has been taken, the registered person shall pay an amount equal to the input tax credit taken on the said capital goods or plant and machinery reduced by such percentage points as may be prescribed or the tax on the transaction value of such capital goods or plant and machinery determined under section 15, whichever is higher.


Assume that capital goods used for 4 Yrs. and 7 Months, so balance life = 5 months

Purchase Cost of Machinery = 50,000/- @ 18% GST i.e. 9,000/- so Total Cost =59,000/-

Calculate ITC of balance useful life = 9000 x 5/60 = 750/- (Amount)

formula = ITC x Balance Useful Life / 60 Months

Lets Assume actual sale value is Rs. 4000/-
Tax Calculation = 4000 x 18% =
Rs. 720/- (Tax)

so Amount > Tax that is 750 > 720 

and as per GST act If Amount > Tax = Amount is to be paid, and same shall be treated as Output tax liability. This will have to be reported in GSTR 1.
