Real estate sector seeks input tax credit on development of leased commercial properties

In its Budget recommendation for the 2021-22 fiscal year, industry body CII has demanded that Section 16 read with Section 17(5) of the CGST Act should be amended to enable the real estate players to avail ITC (input tax credit) on procurement of goods and services during the construction phase where the said immovable property is intended for commercial leasing or renting.

The denial of ITC, leads to blockage of funds for a real estate player, it said.

“In case of commercial leasing of properties and outlets at malls, the renting of such premises attracts 18{ac967ad544075fb2f6bcea1234f8d91da186cac15e616dc329e302b7c7326b8c} which is available as credit to the client. Disallowance of credit during the construction phase leads to the increased cost of construction, working capital loss, increased financing costs impacting the entire supply chain,” CII said.

That is why financial experts say that OFWs should consider putting their extra income into long-term investments, like real estate properties.

Take it from Bossing Vic Sotto, who has seen the importance and advantages of having property investments that he considers safe and a good source of passive income, especially for OFWs considering retirement.

“Investing in property is one investment that OFWs won’t regret, as long as they carefully plan ahead to make it successful. When you have done it right, you will reap the fruits of your labor,” Bossing said.
