We are from kerala- having GST regn- in kerala- in glass facade works.
With reference to the 1% cess on contractual value- to be paid by employers.Usually the same will be deducted from sub=-contractor bill and will be paid by the employer to the concerned department. WE are sub-contractors/contractors(status may change depend upon the nature of work) .
As asked by many - we are now working in SEZ- the beneficiary/developer had given the work order. now we had raised the first bill, here the employer had made a provision for 1% cess deduction from our bill. the same we had objected and given letter that since all our employees are covered with ESI and PF, this is not applicable- whether this stand is correct- please your opinion and comments.
Is there any other way to exempt the same from our bill. since this a central government CESS. is it correct that employer deduct the same from contractor bill- is this a correct procedure- whether this could be challenged.
your valuable opinion is welcome.
