Draft Circular on Refunds in Service Tax ; Problems faced by exporters in availing refund of excess credit

October 28, 2011 5339 Views 0 comment Print

Representations have been received both from the field and the trade regarding difficulties being faced in the determination of the input services which are eligible for refund under notification 05/2006. Resultantly, the issue has spawned delays and disputes, which has necessitated the issue of this clarification. The issue of eligibility of input services to refund under notification no. 05/2006 has been addressed in Circular No. 120/01/2010-ST dated 19th January, 2010 in paragraph 3.1. The criterion laid down in this paragraph for determining the eligibility states that “in case the absence of such input/input service adversely impacts the quality and efficiency of the provision of service exported, it should be considered as eligible input or input service”. This criterion has not been very useful as it is found to be too conceptual and not easily translatable into objective tests that could help in deciding actual cases. Thus a need has been felt for further elaboration by the Board on this issue.
