Yes. Credit Note is eligible for Cenvat Credit. as per Section 67 (c) of the Finance Act,"gross amount charged" includes payment by issue of credit notes. Reference of original invoice is to be mentioned on the credit note. Also go through Board's circular :-

With reference to query no.2 above, answer is 'yes.'.

The purpose of declaring service under Section 66 E

The activities declared under Section 66 E are covered by the definition of 'service' under Section 65 B(44) with a view to remove any doubt for the purpose of uniform application of law all over India. So no dispute about being service in nature. Any service being declared under Section 66 E is not a hurdle in taking Cenvat Credit of Service Tax paid.

Under Section 68(1) of the Finance Act, 1994, the service provider is to collect Service Tax from service receiver and deposit into Central Govt.except RCM. Under Section 68(2) service receiver will pay Service Tax in cash. Legal services fall under RCM at serial no.5 of Notification 30/12-ST dated 20.6.12 as amended.

There is no hurdle in taking cenvat credit on the strength of credit note (linking to original invoice) by a Company.

All aspects have to be taken care of.
