Facts of the Case

The Authority for Advance Ruling observed that that motor vehicle hire services have integral component of running/ operating vehicle from one place to another for transportation. The actual transportation without fuel can’t be possible. Hence, any reimbursement of expenses for providing vehicle hiring services under any head would be nothing but additional consideration for provision of services and it would attract GST on total value of bill.
