Service tax applicability - contractor and sub-contractor

  • Forum

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.

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.
