No service tax on mere transaction in money or remittance of foreign currency from outside to India - 29 July 2012
There is no tax on the remittance of foreign currency in India from overseas per se. However there has been service tax on money changing in 2008. In the negative list regime, ‘service’ tax has been defined which excludes transaction in money. As the amount of conversion comprises money it is not subjected to service tax. The issue has also been explained in the Education Guide released on 20/06/2012 by the Central Board of Excise and Customs, Department of Revenue, Government of India.
There has been no significant change in the levy with regard to money changing in the Budget 2012 – 13 or the negative list except that the rate of tax has been adjusted suitably due to increase in rate of service tax from 10% to 12%. The amount of tax leviable on conversion of foreign currency in India is very minimal @ 0.12% up to an amount of Rupees One Lakh and @ 0.06% for amount in excess and up to Rupees Ten Lakhs and @ 0.012% for amount in excess of Rupees Ten Lakhs subject to maximum amount of Rs.6000 only.
It may be added that in case any fee or conversion charges are levied for sending such money, they are liable to service tax. However, even on such charges, there is no service tax if the person sending the money is located outside India, being beyond the territorial jurisdiction.
Thus, there is no service tax on mere transaction in money or remittance of foreign currency from outside to India by an NRI or any other person.
