    Yes you need to pay ST for every domain and hosting service but not on total value.


    Purchase made – Rs 1,00,000.
    ST already paid – Rs 12,360.
    Total purchase bill – Rs 1,12,360.

    Sale Made – Rs 1,50,000.
    ST charged on sale – Rs 18,540.
    Total sale bill – Rs 1,68,540.

    Net ST payable by you – 18,540 – 12,360 = Rs 6,180.

    Hello, Thanks for the info…

    I wan to know what sort of tax is there if domain is resold.

    For eg, domain purchased for Rs.500 with all taxes and then sold for Rs. 50,000

    Do I need to pay just Income Tax or any other?
