13 13 Conceptually, the new valuation provisions in respect of works contract service seeks to segregate all works contract, however composite they may be, into the following two portions

14 Issue When do the valuation rules apply? Are they applicable only when value cannot be determined u/s 67(i), OR Do they prescribe the manner by which the value is determinable u/s 67(i) 14

16 Issue Is the method of valuation under section 2(a)(ii) an optional one or not- confusion between the TRU Circular dates and the Valuation Rules. Para 13 (iii) f the TRU Circular, while dealing with clause (ii) of Rule 2(a) begins with the words If the value is not deduced, and not merely as an option, the value shall be a specified percentage……… On the other hand sub clause (ii) of Rule 2A begins with the words, Where the value has not been determined under clause (i)………… 16

17 Where the CENVAT Credit can be availed on inputs(goods) in respect of which property has been transferred by the service providers to the service recipient of the works contract service ? 1. in case value is determined under clause (i) of section 2A 2. in case value is determined under clause (ii) of section 2A 17
