You are asking for service tax application on construction contracts right?

1. In case your annual turnover from all contracts do not exeed Rs.10 laks, you don't have any service tax obligation, otherwise you have following options;

a) You can opt for compounding, if you opt this pay 4% of the gross contract value as service tax, if so you will not be availed any CENVAT credit. or

b) Pay 10% on taxable service as service tax and avail CENVAT credit.

There are differant schemes of VAT & Service tax for Civil works.

1. Composite VAT @ 5% + Service Tax 4.12% on 100% amount.

2. VAT @ 12.5% on 70% of Total amount & Service Tax 12.36% on 30% of Total amount.

You have to check with your CA that if you are paying the taxes to your sub-contractor than will you get it's set-off or not ? because it depands on Tax scheme selected by you.

If steel & cement is in your scope than better idea is to issue a work order only for Labour works & pay them only 12.36% Service Tax. ( Sand , Metal & Bricks will be in sub contractors scope , but you have not to mention in PO, it will be your mutual understanding. Because as you know for sand ,cement & metal nobody is giving you Tax invoice with VAT, so why to pay VAT to sub contracor un necessaryly & create complications.
