Under GST law, supply of renting services along with supply of food will be treated as composite supply. And, in the case of composite supply, the rate applicable to principal supply will be taken into consideration. In the above case, renting of a room will be principal supply.  If the declared tariff per unit per day is less than Rs 1,000, it will be exempt from GST. The issue has been further clarified by way of an example in e-flier for clarification on composite supply and mixed supply, issued by the Central Board of Excise and Customs.

What will be the place of supply in case of a sale in an auction under GST law?

The place of supply of goods would be the location at the time the delivery of goods terminates for supply to the recipient. It would need to be analysed if the intention of the parties is to transfer the property in goods during the auction or the goods would be sent to the premises of the recipient with the supplier bearing the risk while the goods are in transit. In the former case, the Central Goods and Services Tax and State Goods and Services Tax would be levied.

If alcohol is served in a restaurant, a separate invoice will be issued or can it be shown in the same tax invoice which will be issued according to GST law for other items?

There is no such restriction under GST law of not showing the item which is outside its purview, along with the item covered, in a single invoice. Therefore, a single invoice can be issued. Further, where a registered person is supplying taxable and exempted goods or services or both to an unregistered person, a single ‘invoice-cum-bill of supply’ may be issued for all such supplies.
