India reduces GST on bunker fuels, sets tax for offshore exploration, gas sales.

Subject: India reduces GST on bunker fuels, sets tax for offshore exploration, gas sales
New Delhi: India has reduced the goods and services tax (GST) on bunker fuel oil, known as bunker fuel, to 5% for all vessels, the government said on Wednesday, which should help the country’s fuel sellers compete with other lower-tax ports in Asia.

India’s nationwide GST taxed bunker fuel sales at 18% when it was implemented on 1 July. The GST replaced state value-added taxes that were typically between zero and 5%.

India’s GST council decided to reduce the tax on the bunker fuel sales after a 6 October meeting where it recommended assessing GST rates for bunker fuel sales, natural gas transportation and for offshore oil and gas field services, according to the statement the council posted on Twitter.

“This would provide limited relief to the bunker fuel sellers that had seen their market shifting to Colombo,” a trade person in the know said. Like Asian bunkering hubs in Singapore and Fujairah, Sri Lanka levies no taxes on bunker fuel oil.

For the offshore oil and gas field services, the council set the GST at 12%. Natural gas transported through a pipeline will have a GST of 5% without so-called input tax credits, or 12% if the tax credits are included, according to the statement. Reuters
