Delhi HC provides temporary relief to advocates for noncompliance with GST

There is no clarity on whether all legal services (not restricted to representational services) provided by legal practitioners and firms would be governed by the reverse charge mechanism. If all legal services are to be governed by the reverse charge mechanism, then there would be no requirement for legal practitioners and law firms to compulsorily get registered under the GST Acts.

No coercive action be taken against any lawyer or law firms for non-compliance with any legal requirement under the GST Acts till a clarification is issued by the Central Government and the GNCTD. - [2017] 83 202 (Delhi)
