Service tax relief for classical, folk music artistes: Budget 2016

NEW DELHI: In an attempt to promote classical and folk forms of music, the government has announced some relaxation in service tax.

The exemption limit on services provided by a performing artist in certain folk or classical art forms of music, dance or theatre, has been enhanced to Rs.1.5 lakh per event with effect from 1 April 2016.

Thus, those paying up to 14 per cent for such performances will not have to pay any service tax.
