Courts across the Country have adjudicated on the subject but still the saga continues. We in The Bengal Chamber have received various requests from members over a period of time to dwell in detail on the subject. Hence we have decided to hold a Fulll day Work shop on VAT & Service Tax Issues in Works Contract in Park Hotel on 19 th February. The Seminar will focus on the following major topics – 1. The various entries of works contract in The Service Tax Law. 2. Open Issues in Works Contract in Service Tax. 3. Real Estate/ Construction Industry & Works Contract. 4. Works Contract in VAT in WB 5. Works Contract in VAT in other major states 6. Works Contract in GST regime. 7. Departmental Perspective on Works Contract. The Speakers would be – 1. T B Chatterjee – Chairperson Indirect Taxes Committee, BCCI 2. Pulak Saha – Partner, PWC 3. Vivek Jalan – Partner, JAV & Associates 4. K S Mani – Senior Director, Delloitte 5. A Jaiswal – Sr Manager, EY 6. Sri Khalid Anwar – Jt Commissioner, Commercial Taxes On the political front, the budget gossips are gaining ground now. Amidst circles it is also expected that there would be some major changes in Service Tax in this budget. Also Income Tax norms may certainly see some easing. In addition to this, one major change in PM Modi’s Caivet is e￿eted is that CA Pi￿sh Go￿l ua￿ replace Mr Arun Jaitley as the Finance Minister. However, the PMO is the last word on the same and our PM keeps his cards close to his chest till the last minute. In Service Tax, CBEC has clarified that construction service provided by a builder to a landowner (who transfers his land/development rights to builder for getting, in return, constructed flats), should be valued in accordance with the Board Circular No. 151/2/2012-ST dated 10.2.2012 and not by Para 6.2.1 of the Education Guide 2012. Accordingly, the value of land with constructed flats shall be value of similar flats charged by the builder/developer from the other buyers at the time when the possession or right in the property of the said flats are transferred to the land owner through a conveyance deed or similar instrument. Just to reiterate that we remain available over a telecom or e-mail. Truly Yours Timir Baran Chatterjee M.Com, FCS, MBA (International Business)-IIFT, ACMA Vivek Jalan FCA, CIDT (ICAI), B.
