In the query all the conditions of Export of Services are being satisfied except that the service must be "used" outside India. If the order was executed in India for which A pvt. company is taking commission, there is all the possibility that services are being used in India. However, it is the matter of facts and circumstances. You should carefully analysis the relevant documents again to find and frame the view about the usage of the services. If you find that the services are also being used outside India, you are entitled to avail the exemption.

Yes, service tax is applicable. Because the law is said that the company have office in India. In the case the company has been registered in India as per companies act. Hence this thing have no value that whether the contracts are made by office established in india or not.
