Changes in Service Tax as per Budget 2016-17


As per Indian Budget 2016-17, the following changes in excise duty and CENVAT taken place.  The details of changes in CENVAT and excise duty is given under:


Excise duty of 1% (without CENVAT credit) or 12.5% (with CENVAT credit) is being levied on articles of jewellery [excluding silver jewellery, other than studded with diamonds/other precious stones] with a higher threshold exemption upto Rs. 6 crore in a year and eligibility limit of 12 crore. Thus, a jewellery manufacturer will be eligible for exemption from excise duty on first clearances upto Rs. 6 Crore during a financial year, if his aggregate domestic clearances during preceding financial year were less than Rs. 12 crore. In other words, jewellery manufacturer having aggregate value of clearances in a financial year exceeding Rs. 12 crore, will not be eligible for this threshold exemption in the subsequent financial year. Necessary amendments have been made in notification No.8/2003-Central Excise, dated 01.03.2003 in this regard. 3.2.2 The SSI exemption for the month of March, 2016 for jewellery manufacturers will be Rs.50 lakh, subject to the condition that value of clearances for home consumption from one or more manufacturer from one or more factory or premises of production or manufacture during the financial year 2014-15 should not be more than Rs. 12 crore. Computation for this purpose shall be done in accordance with the provisions of Para 3A of notification No. 8/2003- CE. For this purpose, a certificate from a Chartered Accountant, based on the books of accounts for 2014- 15, shall suffice. 3.2.3 Similarly, for determining the eligibility for availing of the SSI exemption from 2016-17 onwards, a certificate from a Chartered Accountant, based on the books of accounts for 2015-16, shall suffice. 3.2.4 Excisable goods which were produced on or before 29.02.2016 but lying in stock as on 29.02.2016 shall attract excise duty upon clearance. Jewellery manufacturer shall keep a stock declaration of finished goods, goods-in-process and inputs as on 29.02.2016 in their records duly certified by a Chartered Accountant so as to enable the manufacturers to claim CENVAT credit on inputs or inputs contained in goods lying in stock as already provided for in Rule 3(2) of the CENVAT Credit, Rules, 2004, if he so desires. No stock declaration, will, however, be required to be made to the jurisdictional central excise authorities. 3.2.5 Further, the following simplified procedure and guidelines are being issued for strict compliance: i. Registration once applied for shall be granted within two working days, along with simplified registration procedure as prescribed under Notification No. 35/2001-CE. 6 ii. Further, the requirement of post registration physical verification of the premises has been also done away with in this case. Necessary amendments have been made to Notification No. 35/2001-CE for this purpose. iii. Moreover, documents being maintained by the jewellery manufacturers for State VAT or Bureau of Indian Standards (in the case of hallmarked jewellery) shall suffice for Excise purposes also. iv. The private records of the jewellery manufacturers, giving details of daily stock for his own purposes, shall be accepted for the purposes of Rule 10 of the Central Excise Rules 2002. v. A notification, providing for an optional centralized central excise registration for jewellery manufacturers with centralized billing or accounting system is being issued under Rule 9 (2) of the Central Excise Rules, 2002. vi. Also, jewellery manufacturers will be eligible for a simplified return applicable for optional excise duty of 1%/2% without CENVAT credit under notification No.1/2011-CE, under Rule 12 of the Central Excise Rules, 2002. vii. Rule 12AA of the Central Excise Rules, 2002 provides that in case of goods falling under chapter heading 7113, every person (not being an EOU or SEZ unit) who gets jewellery made from any other person, and supplies the raw materials such as gold/silver/gemstones to the job-worker for such manufacture, the duty liability would be on such person who gets articles of jewellery made from the job worker. In such cases, the principal manufacturer (and not job worker) will be required to get Central Excise registered, pay duty and follow other compliance requirements. This will ensure that small artisans/goldsmiths are not required to take any excise registration. viii. The levy is based on self-assessment and therefore, no physical visits shall be made to registered units in the normal course.
