GOODS & SERVICE TAX (GST) TAX CONNECT – 53 rd Issue JAV & ASSOCIATES (31 Jan. 2016 – 6 Feb. 2016) Page 7 Chartered Accountants SERVICE TAX COURT DECISIONS WONDER CARS PVT. LTD. VERSUS COMMISSIONER OF CENTRAL EXCISE, PUNE I [CESTAT MUMBAI] BRIEF: Provision of additional services to the purchaser of Cars like collection of Smart Card Fees, Vehicle Registration Fees and other extra charges cannot be categorised as ^Business Support Services _ and made liable to service tax. OUR COMMENTS : The assessee is an authorized dealer of Maruti Cars. The assessee also receives an amount from its customers against Smart Card Fees, Vehicle Registration Fees and other extra charges. By extending these services, he seeked to build a strong supportive relationship with present and prospective customers. A per Revenue, these extra charges collected by the assessee are taxable under the category of Business Support Services. The Hon’ble CE“TAT held that the definition of Business Support Services as per section 65(104c) of the Finance Act covers ^customer relationship management services _. However, the definition talks about an entity rendering customer relationship management services and not the customer relationship services rendered by the assessee himself as an aid to his primary business activity. Hence, the extra charges collected by the assessee is not liable to service tax, accordingly, the impugned order was set aside. [Decided in favor of assessee] M/S TANYA AUTOMOBILES PVT LTD. VERSUS COMMISSIONER OF CENTRAL EXCISE AND SERVICE TAX, MEERUTI [CESTAT ALLAHABAD] BRIEF: If there is documentary proof specifically indicating the value of the goods supplied/sold during repairs, the demand of Service Tax for the cost of the goods supplied is not sustainable. OUR COMMENTS : The assessee is an authorized service station of motor vehicles. The department issued a show cause notice against the assessee alleging that he was paying Service Tax on the labour charges only and not on value of spare parts and lubricants used in the course of servicing of the motor vehicles. The Hon’ble CE“TAT observed that where the party is liable to pay Service Tax on the entire invoices/bills, then by virtue of Notification No. 12/03, service tax exemption is available to the extent of value of the goods and materials sold by the service provider to the service recipient provided a documentary proof of such sale exists and no credit of Central Excise duty paid on consumables and spares has been taken. In the above case, though no separate invoice was issued for the sale of spares and consumables, the assessee is showing their value separately in the invoice and also paying VAT/Sales Tax on the same i.e. there is a documentary proof specifically indicating value of the goods. Hence, no service tax liability arises on the value of the spare parts and lubricants used in the course of servicing. Accordingly, the impugned order was set aside.

COURT DECISIONS COMMISSIONER OF CENTRAL EXCISE, BHOPAL VERSUS M/S INOX AIR PRODUCTS [CESTAT NEW DELHI] BRIEF: The packing of the gases into cylinders is not necessary for making the gas marketable - these charges would not be includible in the assessable value. OUR COMMENTS : In the above case, the assessee is engaged in the manufacture of Oxygen Gas and Medicinal gas. He collected charges towards cylinder hire charges/cylinder repair charges and cylinder testing charges from the buyers which were not included in the transaction value. The Revenue issued a show cause notice taking the view that as per definition of 'transaction value', the assessee is bound to pay duty on cylinder hire charges, repair charges and testing charges collected from buyers. The Hon’ble CE“TAT held that that the substantial quantity of gases, in question, were marketable and being supplied in tankers as well as through pipe line and also in the cylinders brought by the customers and as such, the packing of the gases into cylinders is not necessary for making the gas marketable. Accordingly, the above charges are not includible in the transaction value. [Decided against Revenue] M/S INDICA CHEMICAL INDUSTRIES PVT LTD VERSUS COMMISSIONER OF CENTRAL EXCISE, MEERUT- I [CESTAT NEW DELHI] BRIEF: When the goods are delivered ex-factory and the place of removal is factory gate, the freight element has no bearing on the valuation of the product. OUR COMMENTS : In the above case, the assessee is engaged in the manufacture of expanded perlite ore liable to Central Excise duty. The terms of delivery are ex- factory. The revenue contends that there are two points of dispute regarding the freight element in this case. The first issue is that assessee does not include freight (collected separately from the buyers) in the invoice i.e. in the assessable value. The second issue is that amount collected in excess of actual freight from the buyers shall also be added in the assessable value. On the first issue, the Hon’ble CE“TAT held that in case of ex-factory transaction, the arrangement for delivery of goods to the buyer after their clearance from the factory has nothing to do with the assessable value of the goods unless it is established that place of removal for valuation purpose is the delivery point at the buyer's premises. The second issue also lies unsustainable on the same ground that when the goods are delivered ex-factory and the place of removal is factory gate, the freight element has no bearing on the valuation of the product. Hence, the freight amount not being shown in the invoice or some additional income has come to the appellant from freight charges cannot be the reason to add extra amounts in the invoice meant for ex-factory delivery of goods. Accordingly, the impugned order was set aside.

[DELHI HIGH COURT] BRIEF: If software is acquired with the right to use it, the payment made for the same would amount to royalty, however, if the software is acquired as a product for reselling, the consideration paid cannot be considered as royalty and disallowed under Section 40(a) of the Act for non-deduction of TDS. OUR COMMENTS : In the above case, the assessee is a Value Added Reseller (VAR) of the software. He purchased certain software from Australia and Malaysia under VAR agreement. Similar purchases made earlier have been allowed as expenditure for the computation of taxable income. However, in AY 2008-09, the Revenue treated these expenditures as royalty payments and disallowed the same under section 40(a) in the computation of taxable income for non-deduction of TDS. The Hon’ble H igh Court held that in the cases where an assessee acquires the right to use a software, the payment so made would amount to royalty. However in cases where the payments are made for purchase of software as a product, the consideration paid cannot be considered to be for use or the right to use the software. Where software is sold as a product it would amount to sale of goods. It is necessary to make a distinction between the cases where consideration is paid to acquire the right to use a patent or a copyright and cases where payment is made to acquire patented or a copyrighted product/material. Accordingly, the payments made for acquisition of software for reselling shall be allowed as deduction.
