    “goods” means every kind of movable property other than money and securities but includes actionable claim, growing crops, grass and things attached to or forming part of the land which are agreed to be severed before supply or under a contract of supply;

    The following aspects need to be noted:
    •    Although various courts have held that the term ‘goods’ includes actionable claim under the VAT laws, as trade practice, actionable claims were kept outside the taxation net under the current laws. Now, the GST law seeks to change this understanding by including actionable claim in the definition of goods. Thus, under the GST laws, actionable claims would be reckoned as goods;
    •    The words ‘but includes’ is an exception to the “exclusion” of money and securities. In other words, if the actionable claim represents property that is money or securities, it can be held that such forms of actionable claims continue to be excluded;
    •    Actionable claim, other than lottery, betting and gambling will not be treated as supply of goods or services by virtue of Schedule III (Activities or transactions which shall be treated neither as a supply of goods nor a supply of services);
    •    Intangibles like DEPB license, copyright and carbon credit would continue to be covered under ‘goods’.
