No service tax is levyable on purchase of flat which have been constructed completely before sale and completion certificate has been issued. If no authority has been specified for issuance of completion certificate, the same may be obtained from a registered Architect, Charted Engineer, or licensed surveyed
If you have taken registration you have to file service tax returns. Which may be nil. Also if you have collected service tax though not due and if you don t return it to the service receiver you have to deposit it with the department with interest.
When the price was inclusive of all taxes and you have evidence of such a contract, the builder has no bona fides to ask you to pay service tax extra. You can write to him citing the contrac. If he insists ask him to give in writing. you can move against him to consumer forum or civil court.
If service tax is liable then it has to be deposited by the builder. Charging it from the customer, a trust or other wise would depend upon the terms of purchase contract between the two.
Dear sir /madam , Need clarification on whether service tax is applicable for purchasers who buy a new ready to occupy completed flat in a multi unit project . In case service tax is not applicable , how does one prove that the apartment complex/flat was completed at the time of purchase/signing of the agreement . Let me know if completion certificate issued by the CMDA would suffice to prove the same . Further , how does one prove completion in case of an ordinary building ( stilt plus 2 floors) where there is no need for a completion certificate . Look forward to your reply

I have wrongly collected service tax @ 3.09 % on service provided by me during 13-14, the correct rate of tax however is 12.36%, I have taken service tax registration but not filed the return and my turnover is 3.45 lacs. What should be done with the tax collected. can i pay it to the govt. if yes then will the department not ask for higher tax as the rate is higher? would there be any penalty?

we have purchased a flat in 2011.we had fixed the the price of flat inclusive of everything, including all taxes. we had got registered. now sudddenly developer is asking for service tax. please inform me whether we are liable for any service tax even if the price paid is inclusine of all tax? please also clarify us whether we should pay any service tax or developer should pay the service tax
