Works Contract Law and Legal Definition
A works contract is an agreement which is a mixture of service or labour and transfer of goods. Under a works contract the contractor agrees to do certain job in execution whereof, certain goods are transferred to the contractee. Thus, an agreement of building construction, manufacture, processing, fabrication, erection, installation, repair or commissioning of any movable or immovable property, is a works contract. In relation to a works contract only that part of consideration which represents transfer of property in the goods involved in execution of the works contract, shall be taxable.
