On selling the above holiday package by adding his service charge/ markup he charges 3.09% on total amount. For E.g. purchase is RS 1000 + 3.09% service Tax = Rs 1030.90 Sale is Rs 1200+3.09 % service Tax = Rs 1237.08 So the service tax paid to supplier is 30.90 and collected is 37.09, so should he deposit service tax ,the differance or the total amount collected.

    Dear Sir, I have one client of Tour Operator Services. He is managing package tour within India and also abroad.ST is Payable on 25% of Gross amt charged.How would be calculated Taxable Turnover for determining basic exemption limit.(i.e. I have managed package Tour of Rs.11 lacs, so would i apply for ST-1 ?. If yes then why ?.I am believing my clients Taxable Turnover would be Rs.2.75 lacs ( 25 % of 11 lacs). Please guide whether taxable turnover would be before abatment or after abatment.
