Comments:

  • No further amendment in Rule 5 as compared to Rule 7,Hence liability for SP increases as compared to SR.
  • Rule 5 of POT is contrary to Charging Section 66B because as per charging section taxable event is rendition of service.
  • Practical ways for SP:-
  • Pay KKC from their pocket for the payments received after 01.06.2016
  • Raise supplementary invoice and collect from SR.

3. CENVAT Credit on KKC paid on input services received or paid under RCM:

As per Joint Secretary TRU Letter - 334/8/2016 dated 29th Feb 2016, Credit of Krishi Kalyan Cess paid on input services shall be allowed and can be utilized only for payment of such Cess on the output services provided by a "Service Provider".

Comments:-
The Credit of KKC is not available to "Manufacturers", thus it increases the cost to the Manufacturers.

Disclaimer:-
The analysis aims to provide the reader a general understanding of the proposed amendments and should not be construed as a legal opinion.
