Taxes applicable on developing / exporting a software to Slovania

Dear all,

I have a question regarding software export from India to Slovania.

Consider the following as an example case:

I am a freelancer developing small software packages for different clients. For the first time a client outside India approaches me to develop and online transfer a software package to his office in Slovania. He has agreed to pay in Euros.

As far as I have read at multiple forums there is no GST applicable for this export service (via input tax credit). But I am not sure if there are any other excise duties or other form of taxes that I must account before submitting a quotation to the client.

Can you pl. help me by answering the above doubt?

Thanks in advance.
