    Hello And Happy New Year to All,
    This is a case where a real estate broker has a Service tax registration, and receives consideration as brokerage/sub-brokerage (acting as a sub-broker in this case) from another Broker who is the service provider and has received brokerage from the service receiver.

    Is the sub broker liable to charge/collect and pay service tax on receipt of such sub brokerage?
    Thanks and Regards

    In case service tax is not applicable , please help with specific clause/section in the service tax act.

    Yes, Service Tax is applicable in this case and the sub-broker should collect the Service Tax from the main broker.

    However, in case the total value of services provided by the sub-broker in the year is less than Rs. 10 Lakhs, he can claim small scale exemption and the service tax would be exempted in this case.
