To understand the planning in this regard, we would first like to discuss various GST Rate for such events:


GST Rate*

Venue Booked Separately

18% on Rent of Venue

Outdoor Catering Booked Separately

5% on Outdoor Catering

Other Services like DJ, Photography etc. Booked Separately

18% on Value of such Service

Venue, other services plus Outdoor Catering Booked as single service

5% on Total Bill

*Assuming Room Rent of the place/hotel where such Event is being organised is up to Rs. 7,500 per day. In Case, Room Rent is more than Rs. 7,500 per day, GST rate would be 18%.

We hope, now you would have understood that how planning an arrangement for wedding & other events can save you from GST amount that is also 13%. For instance, if total spend on wedding is Rs. 10 Lakhs apart from outdoor catering, Cost up to Rs.1.30 Lakhs on account of GST can be saved which is lot of money.

Therefore, we suggest if possible sign a bundle agreement to the extent possible for such events including of Venue, Outdoor Catering & other services to the extent possible.
