Final Order No. 40137 / 2016
Learned counsel explains that the Domestic Tariff Area (DTA) unit having paid the service tax on reverse charge mechanism on behalf of SEZ unit of the company, the portion of such tax attributable to the SEZ is denied by the adjudicating authority to avail CENVAT credit thereof.
2. When service tax has been paid for no service availed, the same service tax if any already paid shall be treated as advance payment and should be appropriated in future against the tax demand of the appellant. With this direction, this appeal is disposed.
