Mr.Sailesh ., you can take the credit of both the Service tax portion and the Vat Portion paid on the bill., you can claim the input of the Vat paid on the above bill.....

Mr Bargava

But please note that we have received one single bill for material & Labour  and he has charges service tax @ 4.12% can we still get the credit.

Becuse some people have told me that if he has charges vat @ 5% & service tax @ 4.12% then he will be under composition scheme and hence we can not get credit for same.

do you know any ruling or notification for same.

Mr .Sailesh Though it is a composite scheme ., as per the Cenvat Credit rules ., u can claim both the Vat and Sales Tax paid as input., the Composite Scheme is for the contractor and it is irrespective of that we can claim the credit on what ever tax we pay.
