in my view , point of taxation rules  of Rule 7 will apply in the instant case as G T A is notified under section 68(2) of the Finance Act 1994 hence date of payment made would be the point of taxation. since it is after 1st april 2012 rate of tax would be 12.36% and not 10.3%.

GTA need not pay service tax at full rate.

it can pay only on 25% of the 10.30 on abatement basis

but you should not have charged ST at 10.3 from your clients in the invoice raised by you.

 

One more important thing, if you obtain next time when pruchasing trucks, take gate passes and you can

set off the ST liability agains the duty paid.

mr. Hari shanker, what do you think of above reply?

Dear raj kumar shukla,

I agreed with your view & Mr. Pradeep Khatri sir also assumed that your view is the correct but there is one confusion that wehether we need to ask the transporter to raise supplementory inv with charging us the diffrential service tax amount as as we have to take cenvat credit against said payment also & the transporter charged us service tax @10.3% on said bills.

INFACT, MY OBSERVATION WAS RELATED TO REPLY BY MR RAMAKRISHNA  WHICH ACCORDING TO ME WAS NOT PROPER AS YOU CAN NOT TAKE CENVAT WITHABATEMENT WHAT TO TALK OF CENVAT ON TRUCKS. ANY WAY, I DON NOT KNOW  WHETHER YOU ARE LEGALLY LIABLE TO PAY THE TAX UNDER REVERSE CHARGE MECHANISM BEING ONE OF THE SEVEN CATEGORIES AND MAKING PAYMENTS TOWARDS FREIGHT. IF THAT BE SO SERVICE TAX WAS LIABLE TO BE DEPOSITED BY YOU THROUGH CHALLAN. NOW THE DIFFERENCE CAN ALSO BE PAID ALONGWITH INTEREST THROUGH CHALLAN AND CREDIT CAN BE TAKEN BY YOU.  IF YOU WERE NOT LIABLE AND GTA WAS LIABLE ASK HIM TO RAISE DIFFENTIAL INVOICE. (SUPPLEMENTARY INVOICE). CREDIT CAN BE TAKEN BY YOU ON SUPPLEMENTARY INVOICE. LIABILITY MAY BE EXAMINED BY YOURSELF.
