Job work means processing or working on raw materials or semi-finished goods supplied by the principal manufacturer to the job worker. This is to complete a part or whole of the process which results in the manufacture or finishing of an article or any other essential operation. For example, big shoe manufacturers (principals) send out the half-made shoes (upper part) to smaller manufacturers (job workers) to fit in the soles.
The job workers send back the shoes to the principal manufacturer As per GST Act, job work means any treatment or process undertaken by a person on goods belonging to another registered person. The person doing the job work is called job worker. Note: Value of goods sent by the principal will not be included in the aggregate turnover of the registered job worker
The principal manufacturer will be allowed to take credit of tax paid on the purchase of goods sent on job work. However, there are certain conditions.
