CENVAT credit Rules provide for availment of credit of excise duty paid on inputs and capital goods and service tax paid on input services utilised for payment of excise duty on final products and service tax on taxable output services.
As per basic principle of VAT, credit of duty or tax can be availed only for payment of duty on final product or output services. As a natural corollary, if no duty is payable on final product or output services, credit of duty/tax paid on inputs or input services cannot be availed.
As per Rule 6(1) of CENVAT Credit Rules, CENVAT credit is not admissible on such quantity of input or input service which is used in manufacture of exempted goods or provision of exempted services [see annexure for text of rule 6 of Cenvat Credit Rules].
Thus, if inputs and input services are partly used in exempted final product/output service, CENVAT credit of that portion of input/input service will not be available.
The monogram also explains various terms and procedure with examples and Tables for availing CENVAT Credit.
