A painting contactor comes under which category as per Rule 2A(ii) ? It is a commercial project. Can he claim 60% abatement (40% tax) if it is a new project ? Or he must be under maintenance or other works category (70% tax) ? Does he liable for VAT also ? Please share your view. Thanks in advance. vinodaca74 @ gmail.com

If 1 contract separte bills cannot be raised.
If it is original works then on 40% - 5.6%
If repair/ not original works then 7% - 9.8%
VAT payable as per local laws on compition basis or regular scheme as there is transpfer of property.

The painting contractor is not doing any 'original works' in terms of Rule 2A of the valueation rules even if the painting is being done on new building.As such Service tax shall be payable on 70% of the total amount charged for painting work.So far VAT is concerned he is required disharge only if the activity is either sale or deemed sale otherwise not.
