Revised GST Rates on Real Estate Properties | Latest GST Rates for Under-Construction Properties

The GST Council today (24-Feb-2019) has announced a rate cut in the goods and services tax (GST) charged on sales of residential properties under construction.

As per the latest decision, the new GST rate applicable for all housing projects will be 5%, down from the current 12%.

Whereas, the council also decided to lower the tax rate on affordable housing projects to 1% from 8 %.

However, in both cases, input tax credit (ITC) cannot be claimed.

  • Properties costing up to Rs 45 lakh will be considered as affordable.

    • Metropolitan Cities are Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi NCR (limited to Delhi, Noida, Greater Noida, Ghaziabad, Gurgaon, Faridabad), Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai (whole of MMR).

Latest Update (19-March-2019) :

As per the latest update from the GST council, if a real-estate project has already been under-construction (or) where actual booking has been done before 31st March, 2019 then the builder has been given a one -time option to charge below GST rates;

  • On non-affordable properties, a builder can levy old GST rate @ 12% (with Input Tax Credit) or new GST rate @ 5%.
  • On affordable projects, a builder can levy old GST rate @ 8% (with ITR) or new revised GST rate @ 1%.

Do note that the new GST rates are mandatory for Projects which commence on or after 1st April, 2019. The new GST rates are also applicable for on-going projects builders do not exercise their option by 20th May, 2019.

Applicability of GST on Real-estate

The GST Rates will be levied on payments made for under-construction property or ready-to-move-in flats where completion certificate has not been issued at the time of sale. Kindly note that the GST will not be applicable in Re-sale transactions.

If you buy an under-construction property through Govt provided Credit Linked Savings Scheme then such property is considered as ‘Affordable housing’.

GST is exempted on Development Rights (Joint Development Agreement), Long Term lease, FSI etc.,

GST On Real-estate & Latest Updates :

  • Builder can’t charge higher GST for services like PLC (Preferential Location), parking etc. These services should be treated as “composite construction service” and attract the same levy as construction. (Updated on 04-May-2019)
  • Builders have to refund GST paid by Home buyers in case he/she cancels the Flat booked in the last fiscal (FY 2018-19). The Real-estate Developer shall be able to avail credit adjustment for such refunds. (Updated on : 08-May-2019)
  • Home buyers will have to pay 12 % or 8% GST (the rates as existed prior to April 1, 2019 ) on balance amount due to the builder if the housing project has been granted completion certificate by March 31, 2019. (Updated on 15-May-2019)
  • Flat owners will have to pay GST at 18 per cent if their monthly contribution to resident welfare association (RWA) exceeds Rs 7,500. As per the rules, RWAs are required to collect GST on monthly subscription/contribution charged from its members if such payment is more than Rs 7,500 per flat per month and the annual turnover of RWA by way of supply of services and goods exceeds Rs 20 lakhs. (updated on 23-July-2019)
    • In case the charges exceed Rs 7,500 per month per member, the entire amount is taxable. For example, if the maintenance charges are Rs 9,000 per month per member, GST @18 per cent shall be payable on the entire amount of Rs 9,000 and not on (Rs 9,000-Rs 7,500) = Rs 1,500.
    • If a person who owns two or more flats in the housing society or residential complex, the ceiling of Rs 7500 per month per member shall be applied separately for each residential apartment owned by him.

  • Abhishek Chaurasiya says:

    Hi Sree,
    Hope you are doing well!
    I am seeking a valuable response to my below queries,

    I bought under construction flat of measuring Carpet area of 32.42 sqm in Mumbai and the Agreement value was 41 Lakhs and made two Initial part payment of 10 % each of agreement value with 12% GST in February 2019. After that builder raised the new demand letter for another part payment in March 2019 on 12% GST, But my payment went to the builder in April 2019 after the implementation of a new GST slab.
    So my queries are as follow

    1.On March 2019 part payment demand, which is paid by the bank in April 2019 – Will new GST rate applies or Old GST rate apply? When I asked builder you have charged the wrong GST rate because bank paid in April 2019 so new GST rate will be applicable then builder told me “No they have charged correct GST rate because we have raised the demand letter in March 2019.” Kindly give me clarity on that it is correct or wrong?

    2.What will be GST slab applicable as it in under 45 Lakhs and the Carpet area is 32.42 sqm?

    3.How can I avail ITC from the builder on my 20% Part payment on which I paid 12% GST?

    4.How much maximum percentage of ITC can avail from the builder?

    I would be grateful to you if I and get any supporting reference documents for all my queries.

    Regards,
    Abhishek Chaurasiya

    • Sreekanth Reddy says:

      Dear Abhishek,
      As your project is an under-construction property, your builder has the option to opt for old/new rates by 20-may-2019. So, kindly check with them about their choice.

      FYI – Home buyers will have to pay 12 % or 8% GST (the rates as existed prior to April 1, 2019 ) on balance amount due to the builder if the housing project has been granted completion certificate by March 31, 2019.

      Its the builder(s) who can claim the ITC (if any) and not the buyers..

      • Abhishek Chaurasiya says:

        Hi Shree,

        Thanks for your reply!
        I had checked with builder currently he applied the new GST rate from 1 April 2019 i.e. 5 %.

        Still, I am confused regarding for my first query,

        If he is collecting 5% GST from buyers then My April 2019 payment GST would be 5% for my below query?

        1.Builder raised the Demand in March but Payment is done by bank in April 2019 then the builder should revise the GST slab from 12 to 5 % because the payment made in April?

        2. As per the government rule, ITC should pass on the buyer so how can I get the benefit?

        Regards,
        Abhishek Chaurasiya

      Dear Harshit,
      The GST Rates will be levied on payments made for under-construction property or ready-to-move-in flats where completion certificate has not been issued at the time of sale.

      So, answer is NO.

        Dear Sir,
        So now my question is that 90sqm carpet area with 45lkh in non metro was not applicable in affordable housing before and its upgraded recently and now its coming from 1st April 2019 because before this limit was 60 sqm. If i was in 90 sqm with 44 lakh in non metro under construction flat then what will be my GST rate from 1st april, before i was paying 12 %. What will be rate applicable because i was not part of before in affordable zone but now i am in. So what rate builder will be charged ?

        – Is it 12% as he taken before from April but now i am affordable category. Then what will be impact on me in affordable category?
        – is it 8% ?
        – is it 1% as i am coming in recent announcement in affordable segment with parameter but builder can charge me 12% as liberty has given to builder for under construction?

        My main point is only for what they will pay GST those are coming recent affordable zone in under construction but before they was not in .

        Thanks

        • Sreekanth Reddy says:

          Dear Indrajeet,
          I believe that on affordable projects, a builder can levy old GST rate @ 8% (with ITR) or new revised GST rate @ 1%, if the project is under-construction before 31st Mar, 2019.
          You may re-check with your builder and/or with CA as well.

    • Sreekanth Reddy says:

      Dear Nilesh,
      If Occupancy certificate has not been issue and if the flat is still under construction then any payments paid by you after Mar 31 2019 attract the above new revised rates.

      If your property falls under ‘affordable housing’ category then GST rate would be @ 1%.

    I have to submit the 10% more based on construction completion. I was informed that Invoice will be raised by builder on 26th March i.e. their internal process. I have to submit the 10% amount by 13th April.

    I was informed that i have to pay at 12% GST as invoice is raised in march even though i do the transaction in April.
    Kindly advice.

    • Sreekanth Reddy says:

      Dear Abhishek,

      Dear Indrajeet,
      GST is not applicable on ready-to-move (RTM) properties for which completion certificates have been issued.

      Its the buyers who have to pay GST and not the builder.

    I booked a house in a construction society in Vizag. Completed all the works and am ready to make the final payment for the occupancy certificate. will there be any difference in GST if i make my payment after 1st of April.

    The builder says that the new GST is not applicable on already constructed houses. How true is his statement.

    Hello Sir,
    I have done my flat aggreement in Jan 2019.

    The builder has given a payment order in the februrary month, but I have not paid them because NOC incomplete. If I paid them in April, then how much would I have to pay GST?

    • Sreekanth Reddy says:

      Dear Vaibhav,
      5% or 1% depending the type of your property (affordable / non-affordable segment)..

      • Vaibhav says:

        Thanks,

        The carpet area is 474 Sq burst. And the price is 43 Lakhs 90 thousand. So what segment it comes in.
        And
        The builder has told me that NOC has come today, if I make the payment after 1st April 2019 then how much tax will I have to pay?

        • Sreekanth Reddy says:

          Dear Vaibhav,
          Its Affordable housing property. GST @ 1% is applicable on payments made after April 1, 2019.

  • Indrajeet Yadav says:

    Dear Sir,
    Please suggest me

    1-What was the maximum size in affordable flat area at non metro before this 24th FEB 2019 announcement as 90 sqm and 45 lakh in non metro FROM APRIL 2019 and what was gst RATE before?

    2- What was the definition Changed as per Area And amount for GST after 25th Jan, 2018?

    3- I was booked a flat in 44 lakh and 810 carpet area in non metro agreement value in 30th jan. 2018 and Builder is charging me 12% GST from there. Is 810 carpet area including parking space was not in the affordable housing definition till date?

    4- When visited his office yesterday then he told me only 600SQM area was in the affordable housing zone and that was only qualified 8% GST from Jan. 2018 not mine because my carpet area was 810 sqm . is it true?

    Please show some lights on the issues.

    Thanks.

    • Sreekanth Reddy says:

      Dear Indrajeet,
      1 & 2 – Effective GST Rate on affordable house was 12% till Jan 2018, 8% from Jan 2018 till March 2019 and going to be 1% from April 2019.
      There has been only one definition for affordable housing ie 60 sqmt.
      From April 1, 2019, there will be twin-definition, for metros and non-metros.
      3 & 4 – The carpet area is more than 60 sq mt (645 sq ft), so it was not an affordable segment property for now.
      So, on non-affordable property the current GST rate is 12% (with Input Tax Credit) till Mar 31, 2019.

      As your property will fall under the new definition above 90 sq mt, from April 1, 2019, new GST rate on payments after April 2019 will be levided. (Let’s wait for GST council mar 10 meeting to get more clarity..)

      Dear Sathiyamoorthy,
      If you make any payments after April 1, 2019, the new GST rates would be applicable.

      Let’s wait for more clarity on payments already for an under-construction property… (But, I dont think the new rates retrospective in nature..)

      Kindly note that revised rates are applicable on payments made from April 1, 2019. So, I dont think there will be any refund as such..

      • atul says:

        Thanks.

        I read somewhere as follow,

        With regard to those properties where construction work has already begun, Jaitley said a committee of officers will draft the transition rules and frame guidelines.

        “The fitment committee and law committee by March 10 will draft those guidelines and immediately place before the GST Council which will meet via video conference so that ministers do not have to travel to Delhi in election period,” he said.

        To ensure that the real estate sector does not go back to cash economy and to fix the accountability of back supply chain, a very high percentage of goods will have to be procured from GST registered dealer, Jaitley added.

        May be I need to wait till 10 March….

        • Sreekanth Reddy says:

          Dear Atul,
          My interpretation is they are referring to changed definition of Affordable housing and Properties that are already under-construction..

          Anyways, let’s wait for couple of weeks to have a clear picture..

  • Kalaimani says:

    Sir I made 10% as booking advance for a flat under construction a month ago with an understanding of 49 lakhs for salable area by 12% GST. IT is yet going to be registered.
    Kindly clarify whether I can avail the 5% GST now announced if I register the flat after 1.4.2029. property is in Chennai metro city
    Whether the builderwill allow to avail the reduced GST ?

    • Sreekanth Reddy says:

      Dear Kalaimani,
      It depends on your agreement with your builder regarding the Payment schedule.
      If you pay the amount after 1-4-2019, you can avail the benefit of reduced GST rate. You may kindly check/negotiate with your builder..

So i want to know this affordable definition is came now or it was presented before (45 lakh and 90 SQM areain non metro) .Please clear because i made my registration on 30th Jan 2018. So he should charge us 8 % because till date he didn’t provide any GST separate receipt to Us. Please Guide.
