The units located in HP, either newly established or which have done expansion/ capital investments more than the minimum specified limits after 2003 are exempt from central excise duty for 10 years under notifications no. 49/2003 and 50/2003 under the CE TA 1985.Exemption from IT for specified years under the IT Act is also available. No parrralel exemption from ST under the Finance Act 1994 for such CE exempted units is availale.In the absence of such an exemption,service tax is leviable and required to be paidI .It has been judicially held that exemption from tax provided under one Act can not be availed under any other Act till specifically provided under other those Acts also.
There is no such exemption from service tax. Central excise and service tax although collected by the same department however both are guided by different set of rules and acts
IF OUR TURN OVER IS AS UNDER CAN WE APPLY FOR EXCISE REGISTRATION
EXEMPTED SERVICE RS 1.35 CR
TAXABLE SERVICE RS 2.50 CR
SALE OF FINISHED GOODS RS 0.70 CR
TOTAL RS 4..55 CR
PLEASE GIVEN THE SUGGESTION
As regards excise registration, the same is not required in your case, as the vale of finished goods cleared is less than rupees one hundred and fifty lacs,
Refer SSI exemption Notification, with effect from 1/4/2003 for units not availing CENVAT credit - 008/2003 - Dated 1-3-2003 - CE for further clarification.
Also manufacturing of finished goods is different from service tax and their taxable values are not required to be clubbed together.
