Thanks for the reply..

Do we have to inform excise department before providing service to SEZ or any procedure to be followed???
Or straight away it will account to exempt services provided???

Not all services supplied to SEZ are exempted. There is a exempted services list for SEZ and SEZ unit gets the Service Tax Exemption Certificate from Development Commissioner and Excise Authorities. If the the service which you are providing is covered under this then SEZ unit is liable to receive such service tax free.

If your services is under allowed list to SEZ then you should collect copy of such certificate from SEZ unit and should mentioned ' Service Tax Exempted as per Service Tax Exemption Certificate No. ..... dated .... ' on your service bill. There is no need to inform Excise Department is advance.
