Since this would be the last return for FY 2015- 16 under these laws, it is important to reconcile all figures of the returns with the books of accounts. Further in Service Tax, ^any Service _ provided by Government or local authority have been brought within the ambit of Service Tax with effect from 01/04/2016. More so, these services shall be under reverse charge and hence all entities, whether selling services or goods, shall be affected by it. The CBEC has issued various notifications and circulars in this regard. We are just trying to summarize these here – 1. Public sector companies, electricity and public utility boards formed under the respective Acts, public sector banks and other corporations controlled by the Central and State Governments would not be treated as ZGo￿rvuevt[. Ovly the Go￿rvuevt Departuevts ￿ih are required to keep their accounts in accordance with article 150 of the Constitution would be treated as Government for the purposes of the Finance Act, 1994. 2. Certain services shall continue to be exempt. 3. Mechanism of payment shall be as follows – a. Payment shall be on reverse charge except certain cases as below. b. Under certain cases like speed post, life insurance, certain services inside/outside a port or airport, transport of goods/ passengers, renting of immovable property, etc, the payment shall be on forward charge. 4. The Point of Taxation shall be governed by Rule 7 of Point of Taxation Rules. 5. There will be no service tax on duties, cesses, fines and penalties. 6. Service Tax shall be applicable on fees, permissions and licenses except as mentioned In N No. 25/2012. 7. The mere fact that an activity is a statutory or mandatory requirement under the law or whether the amount charged is laid down in statute does not have any impact on the chargeability of service tax. While the notifications have been dwelt in previous issues, the relevant circular is dwelt with in this issue. In WB VAT, a very important circular to note is 04/2016 whereby it clarified that due to clerical mistakes committed while filing annexures along with the returns such as entering wrong TIN, etc., undue hardship is being caused to the purchaser while claiming input tax credit. The dealers must verify the quarter-wise sale-purchase mismatch list for each quarter available in the module named "Dealer Profile" on www.wbcomtax.nic.in and revise the returns within 6 months from the last date for submission of the original return for the respectiv e quarter, if necessary; failing which demand notice may be issued to the purchasers. It is important to note in this regard that for Q2 2015-16, the last date to revise the return in 30 th April. Dealers may please refer their mismatches and revise their returns accordingly. 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.

CASE LAWS M/S. COVESTRO (INDIA) PVT. LTD. VERSUS CCE, PONDICHERRY [CESTAT CHENNAI] BRIEF: There is no requirement of one to one correlation of inputs and output so long as inputs are not used for manufacture of exempted goods. OUR COMMENTS : In the above case, the assessee is a manufacturer of goods namely thermoplastic polyurethane called ^Desmopan [ ov jo ￿rk for a customer (the customer supplies inputs to the assessee.) . The inputs for uavufaturivg ov o￿v[s aouvt avd that for job work are common but are separately identifiable by marks on the packages . All the inputs are stocked together and diverted (and also replaced) if there is an urgent requirement. This diversion of inputs is duly recorded in Goods Receipt Notes (GRN). The revenue issued notice to the assessee for alleged diversion of such inputs without following the procedure under erstwhile rule 57AC or 57F (3) and without payment of duty or paying an amount equal to credit taken on such diverted inputs. The Hon’ble CE“TAT held that under the rules there is no requirement of one to one correlation of inputs and output so long as inputs are not used for manufacture of exempted goods. Within the factory, for manufacture, the inputs can be utilised irrespective for whom the goods are manufactured. Removal within factory is not removal for home consumption from factory which alone invites reversal of credit or payment of duty. Accordingly, the impugned order was set aside with consequential relief.
