We are a Public Sector Utility , we are paying service tax as reverse Charge on the following services 

(a) Rent-a Cab Services 

(b) Manpower Supply 

(c) Works Contract 

But the reverse charge is paid if the services is received from (a) individual , HUF , or partnership firm or AOP . The service tax auditors are commenting that the reverse charge is also applicable if the services are received  from Company or PSU also , Kindly clarify

Dear Prosanta,

In above three case reverse charge is applicable only in case 

Service Provider is : Individual, Proprietor, Partnership Firm, LLP, AOP


Service Recipient is a Company or Body Corporate.

Therefore, claim of Service Tax Auditor that in these cases reverse charge is applicable where provider is corporate.

However, in case service provider is outside India, then all the cases recipient is liable to pay services tax under reverse charge (Import of Services)
