Who is Input Service Distributor (ISD) under GST ?

Input Service Distributor

  1. Input Service Distributor is an office of a business which receives tax invoices for input services and distributes available ITC to other branch offices of the same business. ISD and the branches may have different GSTINā€™s, but they must have same PAN.
  2. ISD Mechanism is meant only for distributing the credit on common invoices pertaining to INPUT SERVICES and not on goods (Input Goods or Capital Goods).

For Example, the head office of ABC Pvt Ltd is located in Hyderabad. ABC Pvt Ltd has its branches in Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai. The head office has received the professional services on behalf of all its branches and received the tax invoice for the same. As the professional services are used by all the branches, the head office at Hyderabad cannot claim the entire input tax credit. The Input Tax Credit should be distributed to the branches located in Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai.
