The service tax is payable if the service provider is an Indian and whether the service is provided to Indian or foreigner. Service Tax is destination based consumption tax.

Hiiii friend.... The service tax is payable if the service provider is an Indian and whether the service is provided to Indian or foreigner. Service Tax is destination based consumption tax. And in either case this can be applicable by way of reverse charge mechanism.

Hie Gunesh, - **Yes**. Any services rendered in India are liable for service tax. It doesn't matter if its provided to an Indian or Foreign citizen.

Hi Ganesh, If you provide the service in India then it does not mean recipient are Indian or foreigner. you will add service tax in your service bill. In following condition you may not charge service tax. 1) Service should be Exempted service / consumed out of Indian Territory 2) Payment should be received in convertible foreign exchange In absence of both above condition the service tax liability arise and payable Thanks

Service Tax is destination based tax. Hence any service rendered in India is taxable.
