    Dear chartered club members,

    Thanks for having such a wonderful forum. This is huge source of knowledge for every one.

    I read in this forum that service tax is applicable for under construction property and it should be calculated on construction cost (should not include UDS land value) * 3.09 %.

    But I got from my builder that it is 5 % of the construction cost. I would like to know is there any recent change in service tax calculation? can you please advice on this?

    I also came to know that 5 % VAT is applicable on service tax amount. For your kind information I have registered the property (1000 sqft) on May 2014.

    Thanks in advance your help.

    Best regards,

    If the property size is more than 2000 sq ft or costs more than 1 Crore, Service Tax Rate is 3.71%

    In all other cases, the Service Tax Rate is 3.09%

    There is no other rate of service tax applicable on under construction property

    Respected Madam,

    It would be really helpful if you could share me GO ( some where in online) which talks about this 3.09% calculation. I want to go with that to my builder.

    Thanks once again.
