For GTA services Service receiver has to pay service tax (reverse charge machanism), hence GTA will not charge service tax.

Now in your situation A(Clearing agent)has to pay service tax because as per the law the person who makes the payment to GTA is liable to Service tax on 75% of the value paid to GTA.

In the each stage for the difference amount is taxable at 12.36% because the amount paid to GTA is reimbursed and the difference is treated as commission hence only the Commission is taxable
No double taxation.

thanks ravi sir,

because, I think for A liability become double, because he is a person who is directly getting service from GTA and he is charging to B after keeping comission

service tax calculation is as under

on gta's bill ( 1000*25% ) 250/- service tax 12.36% is rs. 31/-

and he raise bill to B of rs. 1500/- , on rs. 500/- service tax rs. 6/-

so is he going to pay 31/- and 6/- both amount

2) but in case of B he has a cenvat of rs. 6/- and when he will raise bill to C of rs. 3000/- he will charge service tax of rs. 371/-

and will get cenvat of rs. 6/-

please suggest the correct way to calculate service tax

Service tax on GTA paid by A can be transferred by way of a refund to B and B can transfer to C that depends on Agrrement between the partis.


Assume When there is No refund of ST paid by A.

A-(1000*25%)=250*12.36%= Rs 30.9(ST) and collects ST from B on Brokarage of Rs 500(12.36% of 500=) Rs 61.8
Total ST paid by A is (30.9+61.8)=Rs 92.7

B- 1500 *12.36% = 185.4(ST on Brokarage)
And he will take input of Rs 61.8 paid to A
Net ST paid by B is( 185.4-61.8)= 123.6

Cross check:
Total bill value under this transaction is Rs 3000 out of which Rs 1000 is GTA calculate ST on the same without any broker i,e on 1000 ST is Rs 30.9 and for balance 2000 ST is 247.2
Total ST is (30.9+247.2)= Rs 278.1

Now, check in the differnt stages tax paid it will tally i.e
A-92.7
B-185.4
Total 278.1

thanks ravikumar ji for your valuable answer ,

A) but sir when B raise bill to C of rs. 3000/- he will charge service tax on rs. 1500/- ( brokerage )only as per your explanation , how he will going to show the invoice amount means
for e.g. he will show as given below

non-taxable taxable

transportation (receipted) 1500/-
transportation( non-receipted) 1500/-


because when we raised bill to a party they will ask for why you charge service tax on 1500/- not on rs. 3000/- ( so we have to mention sepretally )

B) we are clearing and forwarding agent but in our ST-2 certificate we had registered for two services
1) clearing and forwarding agent
2) good transport by road

so shall i need to file the service tax return for GTA service also, because in so many cases we are directly receiving the services from GTA and we billed to our overseas customer so we can not charged service tax to them but we are liable to pay service tax as service receiver under reverse charge mechanism ( but normally in our case the GTA from which we are receiving transportation services they are small truck owner or driver ) so it is required to pay under GTA and need to register under GTA?

and second thing if suppose we have only one registered service that is clearing and forwarding agent and we received some services from GTA so at that time it is required to get registered under GTA to pay the service tax under reverse charge mechanism and add services in our ST-2 certificate

ravikumar sir,

in above explanation when B raised bill to C of rs. 3000/- he will charge service tax on rs. 1500/- but
didn't you think he can get the amount of brokerage profit after getting invoice
when he will see in how much amount he is not charging service tax

C can asked to him for provide supporting even though C does not have original bill of transportation he also getting done through another agent


thanks
