Service Tax on Transportation


Dear Sir,

A Pvt. Ltd company has paid transportation amounting to Rs. 20 Lacs during the financial year 2006-07. The bill amount individually was less than Rs. 1400/- each. Please state its service tax consequences if the amount was paid to individual carriers i.e. they were not paid to goods transport agencies.

Thanking You

In my view, service tax liabliity is on the goods transport agency and on the individual transporters. Further as per service tax rules exemption to small consignments was granted in two situations, one situation is that the gross amount charged on all the consignments transported in a goods carriage in a particular trip does not exceed Rs. 1,500/0 and the second situation is that the gross amount charged on an individual consignemnt transported in a goods carriage does not exceed Rs. 750/-

Dear Madhusudan ji,
you mentioned in your querry the individual bill amount of Rs.1400/-. The exemption is available if gross amount charged on an individual consigement transported in a goods carrage does not exceed Rs.1500/ or an individual consignment does not exceed 750/-.- wef 01/01/2005.

Abatement u/s 65 (105) (zzp): Abatement of 75% is available to consignors or consignees.
The above provisions are applicable if transport service is provided by transport booking agent........Ven. Finance minister stated in budget speech on 08/07/2004... 58 services have been brought under the net so far.I propose to add some more this year. These are ....................., services provided by transport booking agent--------------------------------I may clarify that their is no intention to levy srevice tax on truck owners or truck operators.

in your case , the transport has been paid to individual goods carrier. GTA includes any person ( wef 01/05/2006) who provides services in relation to transport of goods by road and issues consignement note .So, in your case consignment note is mandatory.
note:-
For the period prior to 01/05/2006, commercial concern were liable to tax, wef 01/05/2006, any person

Hi Senthil, You can claim the abatement. You can deduct for the 25% of the bill amount. In turn, you can claim the 12.36% tax on 25% of the amount as Service Tax Input. For the purpose of claiming abatement, the transporter should not avail cenvat credit
