    This definition is to be read along with the fiction in Section 2(107) where a ‘taxable person’ is understood to be sub-units of a person such that transactions between two taxable persons is also a taxable supply. Every ‘person’ is understood to have a separate identity, under the GST law.

    For instance, a trust set up by a company will be treated as a separate person from the company, or a limited liability partnership holding all the shares of a company will be treated as a separate person from the company.
