Accounting Treatment of Service tax and Cenvat Credit under New Service tax regime

 

Note: The following are indicative accounting entries on the assumption that service receiver/manufacturer is eligible for taking Cenvat credit and service is an expense.

 

This article provides guidance on accounting treatment for service tax and Cenvat credit in the case of full / partial reverse charge mechanism.

 

Note that incase of reverse charge the service receiver can take Cenvat credit of his portion of service tax only after payment to the government. Hence Cenvat differed till payment.

 

Example:

2. Value of Services provided by an Individual ‘X’- 10,000

3. Service tax rate: Basic-12%, Ed.cess-2%, SHEC-1%

4. Service tax -service provider-25%-

5. Service tax -service Receiver ‘XYZ Ltd’-75%
