Service tax evasion complaint

We entered into a NDA with company A, had lengthy discussion for 60+ days regarding an upcoming project and froze on cost and timeline. At time sending agreement, they asked us to sign with company B, and finally switched to company C at the last minute. In fact, the contract with Company C was pre-dated by 3-4 days, because Company A transferred knowledge shared with it.

In discussion with Company A, amount was X lakh / month, incl all tax. With Company C, the bill was X lakh per month, incl tax... But with 0% service tax due to exemption for small companies. The only financial benefits from switching companies is Company C, not us... our out flow remained X lakh per month irrespective of company.

Why did we switch from A to B to C? NDA and Contract bound affiliates.. and A, B, C shares brand name, logo, letterheads, website, phone number, employees, etc. In fact, if company C sent us a letter, it used Company A's envelopes. When we took them jointly to Arbitration, they claimed not to know each other. Bad move for them.. for now we sued all 3 separately and put cases u/s 72 and 72a of Information Technology Act, 2000.

However, there is rule against claiming service tax exemption while using another's brand name / logo. How do we complain, to whom and where? It's Pune based.

Rcm on man power supply

Respected Sir,
We are providing manpower supply to the proprietorship company from FY 13-14. Up to 31.03.2015, we have collected 25% Service Tax under RCM. Remaining 75% paid by the service recipient.
Notification 30/2012 service tax does not give a clear explanation.
Query 1.
Is this rule applies only if the recipient is PVT Ltd Company not for the proprietor?
Query 2.
If we paid only 25% what will be the impact on us. if we go for appeal
I'm looking forward to your valuable advice.. it means a lot for me.
