Service Providers Under Service Tax

Service provider is the one who renders service to others and normally the persons who receive services from these people are usually denoted as the Service Receivers. The persons who are engaged in providing service to your clients should examine the nature of the service and if the service provided come under the taxable services in consonance with the list. And the service tax providers should also examine if there is any sort of exemption either general or specific provided under notification. Generally the person rendering the taxable service is responsible for making the Service tax to the Government. 
Generally the service tax is payable on the stipulated amount for which the service has been rendered. The point is that if the tax of the service provider’s receipts exceeds Rs 8 lakh for the respective financial year, in that case he has to pay the service tax. On the other hand, if the receipts are at Rs 7 lakhs, then the service provider has to get registered under the service tax.
However, the Finance Act 2008 clearly states that the threshold limit of exemption for small service providers has been increased from Rs. 8 lakhs per year to Rs. 10 lakh per year.
