Issues regarding “Bill To Ship To” for e-Way Bill under CGST Rules, 2017
A number of representations have been received seeking clarifications in
relation to requirement of e-Way Bill for “Bill To Ship To” model of supplies.
In a typical “Bill To Ship To” model of supply, there are three persons involved

 „B‟ is the person who is sending goods directly to „C‟ on behalf of „A‟.
 „C‟ is the recipient of goods.
2. In this complete scenario two supplies are involved and accordingly two tax
invoices are required to be issued:
 Invoice -1, which would be issued by „B‟ to „A‟.
