My question is regarding Tours & Traveling business. If any tour operator having his own vehicles carries his business with accommodation and dinner, then what will the rate of GST? And can he get ITC claim on it. Please clarify.

If a person is engaged in supply of tour operators services, the rate of GST will be 5% provided that credit of input tax charged on goods and services used in supplying the service has not been taken except in case where tour operator service procured from another tour operator.

Therefore in case of GST rate of 5%, benefit of ITC is not available to taxpayer.

Rate of 18% GST is also available for tour operator where he can avail the benefit of input tax credit.
