Service Tax

The Central Board of Excise and Customs issued a comprehensive clarification on the levy of service tax on services provided by the government or a local authority to a business entity. It also includes detailed examples to illustrate computation of service tax in situations when the service rendered is chargeable to tax.

Services provided by the government or a local authority to business entities with a turnover of over Rs. 10 lakh have become taxable effective 1 April 2016, though services such as grant of passport, visa, driving licence and other certificates are exempt. Moreover, services for which the gross amount charged by the government or authority is less than Rs. 5000 are also exempt.
