Yes, these are taxable services

As per the definition in the Service Tax Act:

“management or [business]* consultant” means any person who is engaged in providing any service, either directly or indirectly, in connection with the management of any organisation [or business]* in any manner and includes any person who renders any advice, consultancy or technical assistance, in relation to financial management, human resources management, marketing management, production management, logistics management, procurement and management of information technology resources or other similar areas of management;

Further, Legal professionals are outside the purview of Service Tax, in my opinion the 2,3,4 services mentioned by you are liable to service tax

Mr Yadav:


Could you be more specific about your query? Does the Foreign company has a Permanent establishment in India. Is it registered with ROC as a Foreign Company or the services are provided from outside India to you?
