Updates that Matter # 1

Dear All,

Please find below the "Updates that Matter (UTM # 1)",
Ø  VAT – SC Upholds K.Raheja  Works Contract Judgement–
Ø  ST :- Service Tax Due Date – 25th Oct.
Ø  Cenvat Credit Rules Amended

a)    VAT :- In its landmark judgement (and much awaited) in case of L&T, Larger Bench of Hon'ble Supreme Court on 26th September, 2013 has held that ratios decided by two member bench of the Hon'ble Supreme Court has laid correct legal position and has approved the same.  Further, also held that consequential amendments in law by Maharashtra VAT in regard to explanation (b)(ii) to Section 2(24) of MVAT are constitutional and held valid .
The same can expectedly surge the drive of the VAT Departments across the states to enforce the issue and render such contracts as liable to state vat tax.
