Dear Sir,


I have 2 queries


We are an event management company in India and our client is based in the USA. They are organising a 2 day conference in Bangalore for which they are paying us money via Wire Transfer from their US Dollar account. The service however is being rendered in India please note. The US client does not have any offices in India. Under such circumstances are we supposed to collect Service tax from the client.



We are an event management company in India & our client is an Indian Company based in India. The company is conducting an event for its Star Employees outside India eg. Dubai or Thailand. The service therefore is being rendered Outside India entirely. Under such a circumstance - Can I bill the client in Indian Rupees without charging service tax?
