How tax will be charged where a material is supplied along with services. For example if a taxable person supplied a machine and also installed on clients premises and billed client 50,000 for machine and 40,000 for installation.

How tax will be calculated on this transaction? Whether tax rates will be different for both goods and services if falling under different categories?

This is a case of composite supply where 2 or more supplies are made. You should refer section 8, the section is very well explained with similar example.

To answer your question you should charge tax considering this as supply of machine, since supply of machine is the principal supply and installment is secondary.

As per above section, in case of composite/mixed supply the liability should be determined as:

  • A composite supply comprising two or more supplies, one of which is a principal supply, shall be treated as a supply of such principal supply; and
  • A mixed supply comprising two or more supplies shall be treated as a supply of that particular supply which attracts the highest rate of tax.

So you should consider liability based on composite and mixed supplies. In first case it will be the principal supply and in second supply with highest rate of tax.

The difference between a composite and mixed supply is that in case of mixed supply items supplied are independent of each other.

For example, a pack of different kind of chocolates or foods items is a mixed supply and can be sold independent of each other.
