1 Separate accounts are to be maintained for the receipt, consumption and inventory of input and input service meant for providing taxable output service and for use in the exempted services. Credit should be taken only on that quantity of input /input services which are used for the service on which Service Tax is payable. (Ref. Rule 6 of Cenvat Credit Rules, 2004). 2 If separate accounts are not maintained, the provider of output service shall pay an amount equal to 5% percent of value of exempted goods and exempted services; or pay an amount as determined under sub-rule (3A); or in relation to provision of exempted services; subject to the conditions specified in sub-rule (3A) ibid. (Ref. Rule 6(3 & 3A) of Cenvat Credit Rules, 2004 read with Not.No.3/2011 CE (NT) dt.1.03.2011).

Dear Notifications are issued in central excise as well as service tax exempting the goods from the levy of excise duty and services from the levy of service tax. The manufacturer of goods may produce dutiable goods only or exempted goods only or dutiable goods and exempted goods. The output service provider may also provide taxable services or exempted services or both taxable and exempted services. The CENVAT Credit Rules allows the manufacturer and output service provider to avail CENVAT credit on excise duty paid for inputs and service tax paid on input service provider. CENVAT credit is not allowed in respect of exempted goods or services. Rule 6 of CENVAT Credit Rules, 2004 imposes some obligations of manufacturer of dutiable and exempted goods and provider of taxable and exempted services. MAINTAINING SEPARATE ACCOUNTS: According to Rule 6(1) the CENVAT credit shall not be allowed on such quantity of input or input service which is used in the manufacture of exempted goods or provision of exempted services, except in the case where a manufacturer or provider of output services maintains separate accounts for receipt, consumption and inventory of input and input services meant for use in the manufacture of dutiable final products or in providing output service and the quantity of input meant for use in the manufacture of exempted goods or services and take CENVAT credit only that quantity of input or input service which is intended for use in the manufacture of dutiable goods or in providing output service on which service tax is payable. The CENVAT credit on inputs shall not be denied to job worker referred to in Rule 12AA of the Central Excise Rules, 2002 on the ground that the said inputs are used in the manufacture of goods cleared without payment of duty under the provisions of that rule. OPTION IN CASE OF NON MAINTENANCE OF RECORDS Rule 6(3) provides that in case the manufacturer of goods or the provider of output service is not opting to maintain separate accounts for dutiable goods and exempted goods/taxable and exempted services, the manufacturer of goods or the provider of output service shall follow of the following options as applicable to him: i) manufacturer of goods: * to pay an amount equal to 10 % of the value of the exempted goods; or * to pay an amount equivalent to the CENVAT credit attributable to inputs and input services used in, or in relation to the manufacture of exempted goods; ii) provider of output service: * to pay an amount equal to 8% of the value of the exempted services; or * to pay an amount equivalent to the CENVAT credit attributable to inputs and input services used in, or in relation for provision of exempted services. The second option is subject to conditions. CONDITIONS: Rule 6(3A) provides the conditions as follows: a) While exercising the second option, the manufacturer of goods or the provider of output service shall intimate in writing to the Superintendent of Central Excise giving the following particulars, namely: * Name, address and registration number of the manufacturer of goods or provider of output service; * Date from which the option under this clause is exercised or proposed to be exercised; * Description of dutiable goods or taxable services; * Description of exempted goods or exempted services; * CENVAT credit of inputs and input services lying in balance as on the date of exercising the option under this condition. * Such option shall not be withdrawn during the remaining part of the financial year; * Credit shall not be allowed on inputs and input services used exclusively for the manufacture of exempted goods or provision of exempted services. Provisional payment: b) the manufacturer of goods or the provider of output service shall determine and pay, provisionally, for every month- Inputs: Amount equivalent to CENVAT credit attributable to inputs used in or in relation to manufacture of exempted goods = A Total value of exempted services during the preceding financial year = B Total value of dutiable goods manufactured and removed + total value Of taxable services + total value of exempted services provided during the preceding financial year = C CENVAT credit taken on inputs during the month - A = D The amount of CENVAT credit attributable to inputs used for provision Of exempted services (provisional) =B/C*D Total value of exempted services + total value of exempted goods Manufactured and removed during the preceding financial year = E Total value of taxable and exempted service provided + total value of Dutiable and exempted goods manufactured and removed during the Preceding financial year = F Total CENVAT credit taken on input services during the month = G The amount attributable to input services used in or in relation to Manufacture of exempted goods or provision of exempted services (provisional) = E/F * G Final Payment: c) the manufacturer of goods or the provider of out put service shall determine finally the amount of CENVAT credit attributable to exempted goods and exempted services for the whole of the financial year in the following manner, namely: The amount of CENVAT credit attributable to inputs used in or in Relation to manufacture of exempted goods, on the basis of total Quantity of inputs used in or in relation to manufacture of said Exempted goods = H The total value of exempted services provided during the financial year = J The total value of dutiable goods manufactured and removed + total value Of taxable services provided + total value of exempted services provided During the financial year = K Total CENVAT credit taken on inputs during the financial year - H = L The amount of CENVAT credit attributable to inputs used for Provision of exempted services = J/K * L Total value of exempted services provided + total value of exempted Goods manufactured and removed during the financial year = M Total value of taxable and exempted services provided + total value of Dutiable and exempted goods manufactured and removed during the Financial year = N Total CENVAT credit taken on input services during the financial year = P The amount attributable to input services used in or in relation to Manufacture of exempted goods or provision of exempted services = M/N * P d) the manufacturer of goods or the provider of output service, shall pay an amount equal to the difference between the aggregate amount as determined as per condition (c) and the aggregate amount determined and paid as per condition (b), on or before 30th June of the succeeding financial year, where amount determined as per condition (c) is more than the amount paid;

Dear Friend, as far as your query is concerned that What should be done, if an assessee is rendering both taxable services as well as exempted services, but the inputs and input services are common? Let me informed that 1 Separate accounts are to be maintained for the receipt, consumption and inventory of input and input service meant for providing taxable output service and for use in the exempted services. Credit should be taken only on that quantity of input /input services which are used for the service on which Service Tax is payable. (Ref. Rule 6 of Cenvat Credit Rules, 2004). 2 If separate accounts are not maintained, the provider of output service shall pay an amount equal to 5% percent of value of exempted goods and exempted services; or pay an amount as determined under sub-rule (3A); or in relation to provision of exempted services; subject to the conditions specified in sub-rule (3A) ibid. (Ref. Rule 6(3 & 3A) of Cenvat Credit Rules, 2004 read with Not.No.3/2011 CE (NT) dt.1.03.2011). Hope answer was helpful to you Regards, Arjun Pratap Singh
