Availing Input Credit [Service Tax] in Tally.ERP 9

There are scenarios where the Service Provider charges the Service Tax on the services provided but it is not possible for the Service Receiver to ascertain the service amount on which the Service Tax is charged.

In this case Service Receiver will account only the Service Tax paid amount as Input Credit to adjust towards the Service Tax Payable.

Examples: Bank charges Service Tax during Currency Conversion (Exchange). Service Provider renders service free of cost by collecting only the Service Tax amount.

Facility to avail Input Credit on the services received without  specifying the Service Amount is provided in Tally.ERP 9 Release 3.3. To account Input Credit a new flag - Avail Input Credit is provided in Journal Voucher.

Example: On 15-10-2012, ABC Company received a Bank Statement with information about service tax charged on Conversion of Currency.


The Service Tax charged on the services rendered is


* Service Tax - Rs. 2400

* Education Cess - Rs. 48

* Secondary Education Cess - Rs. 24
