The servuces tax is lueviable on all services except as defined under the negative list. The liability of paying service tax is also on the service provider except in few cases where liability of service tax is on service receipient.
I would suggest you elaborate the facts of your case or proivde with the copy of the show cause notice issued to you and i can guide you further.

The internet is not a lawyer and neither are you.
