Is service tax applicable on home delivery ?

POSTED BY Raja ON December 6, 2013 11:02 am COMMENTS (3)

1. Is service tax on home delivery applicable now? I had read in Oct-Nov 2013 that the service tax dept will be coming out with the decision related to this, but could not find anything to that respect. Is there any link on the service tax website which gives clarification on this aspect.

2. Can restaurants charge service tax if they do not have service tax registration yet? This is irrespective of whether it is dine in or take away.

    Hi Ashal, by home delivery, I meant home delivery of food i.e. take away.
    Restaurant may be air conditioned, but are they supposed to levy service tax for delivering orders to your home. e.g. dominos delivering pizza

    Dear Raja, service tax on homes is linked with the construction and not related to delivery. So I’m unable to understand your query here.

    Regarding the Restaurant thing – if no service Tax regidtration is there, it’s plain cheating of the customers by that restaurants.

    Thanks

    Ashal
