Dear Querist,

Sponsorship services were brought under Reverse Charge Mechanism vide Notification No.30/12-ST dated 20.6.12. Expenses shown in Profit & Loss Accounts mean you have made payment to the Service Provider on account of receipt of sponsorship service. Hence it attracts ST and 100 % liability is cast upon Service Receiver.

Sir, my contention is the expenses shown above pertains to other than business purpose which will not be used in or in relation to manufacture or provisions of services either directly or indirectly in any manner and also not for some consideration whether in monetary or non-monetary form. Need more clarification on this aspect supported with case laws or clarification by Board, if any.

Dear Querist,. The question of using "in or in relation to " comes later. Expenses indicate you have received service which is under RCM. You may not be able to use in taxable output service. That is a separate issue.Regarding the 'element' of consideration, there is no '''free lunch". You understand well, being a knowledgeable person.

As per Section 2(11) of the Company Act, 2013, a Pvt. Ltd. Company is body corporate. Hence RCM applicable. As per Rule 2(p) of the Cenvat Credit Rules, 2004 is not an output service. No doubt about applicability of Service Tax on recipient of service.

Service Tax under Reverse charge was applicable on sponsorship services.
