I have a query that if it is essential for a service provider company to get sales tax certificate whose main service areas is providing only operation & maintenance services for oil pipelines. Company is not selling anything but when purchasing accessories from the vendors either in the form of accessories or in the form of capital items to send at its various sites either it may be in rajasthan,gujarat or in any part of the country than vendors ask for the road permits. In what way company overcome with this matter. Registration is not possible in every state or ask notify the main party from whom he got the contract to issue road permits. it seems doubtful but if it is possible tha what is the procedure.
Kindly elaborate these points.
