    Dear Sir,

    I booked a Flat near Medavakkam, Chennai and I registered my unit by 28-Feb-2013. And occupied the house by Apr-2013. We received the possession letter also from the builder.

    At the time of registration, builder gave a Demand Note, with all charges and calculation. In that they have calculated 33% Service Tax.

    Today, 27-June-2013, ST was calculated wrongly for 33%, actually ST is 40%. and they demand me to pay the remaining amount.

    Request you to clarify me the ST applicability on Dwelling
    Whats the ST % for the year 2013.??
    What are the charges, the ST is applicable??

    Please let me know the above mentioned details

    Service tax is applicable to running projects(more than 12 dewelling units) as per the prevailing rules.All facilities such as parking lots,open parking space etc as the act says ANY amount received or deemed to be received will attract service tax.
    Only if the completed apartment is purchased S.T is not applicable provided the CC is received for the project from the CMDA/DTCP as applicable.

    Dear Sir,

    Request you to please advice whether service tax is applicable on flats booked before 1st July, 2010. Currently there is confusion, some people says;

    1. Service tax is applicable on the entire amount/cost of flat if the construction is not completed before 1st July,2010
    2. Service tax is applicable only on under construction flats booked on or after 1st July, 2010 and therefore it is not applicable on the flats booked on or before 30th June, 2010.
    3. Service tax is applicable only on the installments paid on or after 1st July, 2010 by buyers to the builders for under construction flat irrespective of the booking date of the flat.
    4. Is service tax applicable on Parking lots, open parking taken on lease for 999 years?

    Thank you.
