Service Tax in SEZ: Considering recent notification dtd 20th May'09 of SEZ regarding Service TAX - I have a specific Querry. I am an EPC Contractor to a developer of SEZ. My erection and civil contractor are working in SEZ area and giving me erection services within SEZ. Is service TAx chargeable between me and my sub contractor. (My doubt is service tax on transcation between main Contractor and its sub contractor working within SEZ).

If the services of sub-contractors are being consumed directly in SEZ, the same shall remain exempted. On the other side, where the services are not consumed, but treated as in relation to authorized operations in SEZ, the same will be required to be charged to service tax. The unit in SEZ would claim exemption by way of refund.
Thks for your reply- can u please tell me the rule under which...the service tax between EPC contractor and its sub-contractor is exempted from service Tax.
Please see the SEZ Rule 10(1) of SEZ Rules 2006 where in it clearly stated that even contractor, sub-contractors appointed by developer are alloowed to avail exemption.

Further if any exisiting power project of 800 MW is adding another 800Mw, would it be able to get any benefit or not?
