KNDRIYA UTPAD SHULKH BHAWAN, TElANGKHEDI ROAD

It is brought to the notice of the Public that the new Service Tax rate of 14% has been proposed In the Finance Bill, 2015 by the Hon’ble Finance Minister on 28-02-2015. The new Service Tax rate 14% is not effective immediately and shall come into effect only from a date to be notified later. The existing rate of Service Tax is 12.36% (Inclusive Cesses)

It has come to the notice of this office that though the new Service Tax rate of 14% has not yet been given effect, some of the service tax providers have started billing & recovering the amount of Service Tax at the rate of 14% from their customers. This practice is not only completely illegal but amounts to collecting consideration from the general public which is not so required to be collected as Service Tax.

It is therefore appealed to, bring any­such instance to the notice of Customs, Central Excise & Service Tax Department. The details of the nominated officers of the Department for Vidarbha Region for this purpose are, as under

    Mr. S.RAMAMOORTHY and ASHWINI PANDEY

    currently effective rate is 12.36%.

    through finance bill goverment just get the authority to increase rate to 14 2%. but applicable only when it notify.

    so wait for notification from MCA.

    ALSO effective rate will be 16% not 14.28. [becoz 2% swatch bharat cess is upon taxable service ,not upon tax]

  25. Rawal singh bhati says:

    Mr. vishnu

    If you collect extra:

    Just pay the amount you deducted to govt a/c.

  26. Rawal singh bhati says:

    Mr. vishnu

    Currently effective rate is 12.36 %.

    It will remain same untill goverment not notify the new rate i.e,14 2 =16% [yes 16 ,not 14.28]
