2015 (6) TMI 748

Head Note:
Denial of CENVAT Credit - Belated service tax registration - Held that:- Since the eligibility of the appellant to the cenvat credit on the input services has not been disputed by the Department and the only ground taken for disallowance is on account of non-registration of the service provider, I am of the considered opinion that the same is not a valid ground for disallowance of the benefit of refund, to which, the appellant is legally entitled to. - in absence of a statutory provision prescribing the condition that registration is mandatory, the authorities cannot take the view that the assessee shall not be entitled to the benefit of refund. I also find that placing reliance on the said judgment of the Hon’ble Karnataka High Court, this Bench of the Tribunal in the case of M.L. Outsourcing Services (Supra) has allowed the cenvat credit by holding that registration of premises is not necessary for claiming the cenvat credit.

Denial of refund benefit on the courier service, without discussing the nature of utilisation of such service by the service provider cannot be a defensible ground to deny the benefit of refund, especially in view of the fact that the output service has been exported by the appellant. - appellant is entitled for refund of service tax on the disputed input services and accordingly, I set-aside the impugned order - Decided in favour of assessee.
