I am working as Manager Finance in a PSU. We have various works awarded to various contrators. One of the repair and maintenance contract has been awarded to a party as inclusive of service tax. The party is not registered under Service Tax. The Services are taxable under Service Tax. Our Service tax payment are centraly made at Head quarters at New Delhi and we are a unit at a different location.
1.The problem is if we make the deduction of Service Tax from the bill of the party how would we be able to take credit ?
Hey....If he is not a registered dealer then he cannot charge service tax in his invoice na........ If he charges the tax then he will be providing his Service tax registration number which means he is a registered dealer......... So u can take input only when the service provider has mentioned Service tax Reg no in turn remitts the same to the govt..... The logic is simple...... The Govt will give u input only for the amount which it has already received....... Cheeeers.......
why r u worrying about the service tax bcoz u hav to pay wat he has chgd to u,if he has not chgd the S.T,then either is services has not crossed 10lakhs or he may be exempted from payment of service tax. or else u can ask that party about their reg status as per s.t. act.
