    1. Pay an amount calculated at the rate of 0.6% of the basic fare
      (i.e. that part of the fare on which commission is normally paid to the travel agent by the airlines) in the case of domestic bookings,

      and at the rate of 1.2% of the basic fare in the case of international bookings, of passage for travel by air, during any calendar month or quarter

      Option, once exercised, shall apply uniformly in respect of all the bookings of passage for travel by air made by him and
      shall not be changed during a financial year under any circumstances

    1. Annual maint. contract as such not covered under manpower. First check that as per tem and condition of the contract ,whether contract is covered under the manpower or not . If yes then you should charge 25 % service tax only and should contact tally service provider to correct the rates .

      Manpower definition as per act is

      Manpower means
      (g) “supply of manpower” means supply of manpower, temporarily or otherwise, to another person to work under his superintendence or control.’

      so if control is with you then it is not covered in power.

  28. We are made to understand that Service tax is payable on the membership subscription amount for membership in trade bodies like Chamber of Commerce etc.

    What is the rate of ST and the effective date for charging the same?

    We have been given reference of Central Excise O.C.No.765/2012,dt. 08/10/2012 saying that is has been introduced with effect from 01.04.12. Is this correct? has the levy been introduced with retrospective effect?

    A clarification will ease a lot of tension in our minds.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. You should treat the exam fee and books as sale and should charge vat from the students .Same as the company do with you . if you do so no need to charge service tax n such amount .further you can claim input tax credit of vat and you liability for vat will be almost nil.
