What’s Inside

Since the inception of GST, it has changed how we approach our indirect taxes in India. With its unified structure and simplified process, GST has streamlined the movement of goods and services nationwide. But there is also a complex web of rules in determining supply valuation in GST. So let’s dive in and understand the concept in detail.

What is the Valuation of Supply under GST?

The supply valuation in GST refers to the price the customer pays the supplier for a transaction. This price includes extra charges such as shipping and handling fees but does not include GST. In some instances, some transactions are not sales like transfer of stock between two states but are still considered as the taxable value of supply. In some cases, the value of supply is regarded as the open market value or the amount the goods are expected to sell for.

Why is the Valuation of Supply under GST Important?

The amount of GST applicable on a transaction depends on the value of goods and services sold or transferred. Buyers pay for the goods or services to the seller by cash or online transfer. The buyers can also transact with non- monitory considerations by giving the seller other goods or services in exchange.

In some cases, the buyers may partly pay for the transaction in cash and partly in kind in exchange for some goods or services, so it is essential to accurately calculate the supply valuation in GST.

Valuation of supply when the transactions are not in INR

In cases when the transactions are not made in INR, the taxpayer may raise the invoice in foreign currency. The IGST (if any) is charged in the invoice and is converted by using the regulatory authority's Exchange Rate, which is available on this website, and the same rates are applicable in the case of imports as well.


The valuation of supply under the GST framework is vital to ensure the GST is calculated accurately. Therefore, you can ensure smooth business operations by effectively understanding and applying the valuation provisions.
