the service comes under works contract and he can avail the abatement of 40%.works contract presupposes transfer in property,hence VAT is a must.Otherwise he has to pay ST @ 14%

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.

Dear sir,

My client is a painting supervisor. He gets charge for supervision of painting work from his customer. His customers will pay for material and labour charges directly to his Suppliers and labourers respectively. He get charge for supervising the painting work. He is not a work contractor. He is expert painting supervisor.

Undet what category , he should take service tax registration. ?

He undertakes supervision charge for painting of various kinds of buildings - residential building, factory building, Residential complexes, Commercial complexes, Flats etc.
