We have opted a security Agency for manpower. I want to understand that, "Is service Tax applicable on whole amount" i.e Manpower wage + service charge 10% and on that service Tax OR "Manpower Wage different and service tax only on service charge which I pay"
Exp : Manpower Wage Rs.100 +10(service Charge) = 110 +12.36% S.Tax = 123.60/-
Manpower Wage Rs. 100, Rs.10 Service Charge +12.36% Tax =11.24 = 111.24/-
Ideally, Service tax can be applicable only on service charge !
which one is correct pls guide

Service Tax will be charged on the gross value of the services provided. Further, refer Notification No. 30/2012-ST 45/2012-ST and 46/2012-ST in this regard.
Dear Mr. Gagan
So far as i have understood your question my reply is as below:-
The valuation of services rendered under Manpower Services shall be determined as per provisions of section 67 read along with Service Tax (Determination of Valuation) Rules, 2006. So, far as it is related to Manpower Supply, no specific provision for determination of taxable value has been provided. Hence the Taxable Value in my opinion will be total amount of consideration.
Hence, in my opinion it will be (Wages + Service Charge) X 112.36%= Invoice Value.
Rs. 100+ Rs. 10= Rs.110 + 12.36% of 110.00= 123.60
