Liability of service tax on transportation charges - Service Tax

Issue Id: - 1562

Liability of service tax on transportation charges

Our company purchased finished goods from various manufacturers after payment of appropriate excise duty. We have directed the manufacturers to despatch the goods to our various depots. They supplied the goods in their own trucks and in some cases they have hired the local trucks for which we have paid the transportation charges extra as per agreement. Now the Excise dept. is demending Service tax from us for the payment of such transportation charges paid to the manufacturers. Our contention is they are the manufacturers and not covered under GTA and hence service tax is not liable for such transportation charges. Your valued opinion with caselaws if any to justify our case is solicited. Thanks & Regards, B.C.Bhat

The question is whethe the supplier / manufacturer of finished goods has acted as independent transaporter and collected fare from your commpany. Or he has supplied the goods as owner of truck and transportation charges collected seperately. In the first instance there would not be any service tax whereas on the second instance there would be service tax on GTA service. After ascertaining the fist issue, you need to ascertain that who is liable to pay service tax.
