We are in Kolkata doin telecom business our principals are in Pune and we regularly send defective parts to the principals for repair. These spares are sent back to us after repairs. Our Sales tax officer is terming this as interstate transfer and asking us to furnish F form. What is the remedy. Since this is not at all a sale.
Typically F form is required to be sent for IUT movement of Goods between branches, units of same manufacturing units etc. That is for transactions which otherwise can be termed as sale. A recent Supreme Court decision has now cleared the air about the issue of F forms. This decision holds that movment of goods for the purpose of repair and return also is within the scope and deserves issue of Form F.
Welcome to the knowledge shared by you in respect of F form for defective goods sent. Let me know the SC case number or a copy of the judgment which is urgently required to contest a case. Thanks in advance.
