If you look at the market today, you will notice very often, two or more goods, or a combination of goods and services, are supplied together. This could be due to either of the following reasons:
- A sales strategy to attract more customers
- The nature or type of goods or services, which requires them to be bundled or supplied together
Under Service Tax, this mechanism is called Bundled Service which is the rendering of a service or services with another element of service of services. However, the success of a business will significantly depend on the ability to understand and adopt to this new reality as certain existing business practices will have to undergo changes.
Under the revised model draft GST law, supplies which are bundled with two or more supplies of goods or services or combination of goods and services are classified, with distinct characteristics, as:
- Mixed Supply
- Composite Supply
