My role will be providing software training to the customers. I will not be in direct sales. So, because of this I need to travel India and foreign countries for providing training. In this case, I can reimburse the expenses (on actual with bill). Some times, I need visit the Fairs (India & Abrod), and also Visit my parent company.

Whatever you charge against supplies of services to you foreign customer will be included in the taxable amount while raising an Tax Invoice on them i.e. gross amount will charged by you including expenses but excluding Pure agent service if any. As service provider, You would also be in need of IEC Number (importer Exporter Code) which you can obtain from DGFT's website. Further, on such service you may also get SEIS under Chapter 3 of the FTP read with HBP vol. 1
