 In the Budget-2012-13 under the new Reverse Charge Mechanism in certain services the receipient of the service has been made liable to pay tax instead of service provider. In three of services namely  hiring of means of transport, construction and man power supply both service receiver and service providers have been made liable to tax in the prescribed percentages.

Section 68(2) of the Finance Act, 1994 has been suitably amended in the budget of 2012-13 whereby a proviso has been added to the said section authorising Central Government to notify the service and extent of service tax payable by such person and extent of service tax payable by service receiver.

In view of the above proposed amendment notification 15/2012 dt. 17-03-2012 has been issued whereby in the following services, tax will be paid by service receiver to the extent specified in the table:

In works contract service 50% service tax will be paid by the contractor and 50% by the contractee. In works contract service there are two schemes one is composite scheme and other is paying on actual labour and services. 

The question is in a single works contract if the contractee and contractor choose different schemes for payment of service tax then how the ratio of 50% will be determined, will the contract be divided in two parts or any other criteria will be adopted? Some more clarifications are required in this regard from CBEC
