We are the manufacturer of chemicals having factories all over gujarat state. We take insurance policies to cover the risk of fire, & other statndard perils under incurance  act  to safeguard our Plant, Building, stocks etc.

The service tax paid on insurance premium to general insurance company can be available as set off/ credit treating it as input service.

Insurance premium is a input services you, till the place of removal. If your place of removal is buyer place then you are entitled for credit. you can place relience on the judgement of CCE Guntur Vs. CCL Products (India) Ltd. 2012 (277) ELT 177 (Tri. Bang.) also on CCE Tirunelveli Vs. DCW ltd. 2011 (22) STR 214.

As per Cenvat Credit Rules, 2004 Rule 2 subrule (l) input service means any service used by provider of output service for providing an output service and includes services in relation to modernisation, renovation or repairs of factory etc upto the place of removal but excludes

So accordingly, insurance is an input service used in relation to and also it is not specifically exluded. So difinitely in our view service tax credit can be taken in respect of general insurance premium.
