Service Tax exempted upto 10 Lakhs of earnings in a financial year, as mentioned hereunder.

8) However if X is running a small business of trading in miscellaneous items of food and had supplied certain items of food to Y-his own brother- on credit and Y now refuses to make payment for the supply and A-an Individual advocate- is advising X against Y for recovery of the business debts, then X becomes a Business entity and the status of services of A would be as under:
If the turnover of X in the preceding financial year was not exceeding rupees ten lakh Exempt
If the turnover of X in the preceding financial year exceeded rupees ten lakh Taxable- service tax payable by X
