CENVAT (Central Value Added Tax) credit is the the set off
of the duty paid on inputs and capital goods and also
service tax paid on input service against the Excise duty
on final products or service tax o input service.

Ex:-
1. Purchased Raw Material (inputs) Rs.110
(Includes 10% Tax paid on it i.e. Rs.10)
2. Value addition Rs.200
3. Total (1+2) Rs.310
4. Excise Duty on (3) above, Say 20% i.e Rs. 62
-----------------------
If Cenvat credit,is there,
Cost of Product= [(110-10)+200+ 20%(100+200)]=Rs.360

If Cenvat credit,is not there,
Cost of Product= [110+200+ 20%(100+200)]=Rs.372

Before I am going to explain what is cenvat, you have to
under stand the Indian tax Central Excise Duty (BED). It
is called as basic excise duty. Every manufacturer is
liable to pay the excise duty in various kinds namely Basic
Excise Duty, Special Excise Duty, Additional Excise Duty
etc.,
Just think over a product which is reached to a end user,
how many manufacturing activities are done. So to reduce
the tax burden of the end user, the Govt. of India
introduce the MODVAT scheme which is now called CENVAT
scheme.
Based on this, if any manufacturer purchased a material,
which is duty paid, and if it is used for his further
manufacturing activity, he can avail this as credit in his
book based on the Central Excise Invoice. At the time of
selling his manufactured goods, he is liable to pay the
excise duty. He can adjust the credit which he has taken
into his book and pay the rest. For example:
CENVAT availed at the time purchased various goods
Rs.20,000 (Excise duty alone)
CENVAT payable for his product at the time sales
Rs.25,000

CENVAT is nothing but central value added tax which is
basically an input duty relief scheme. CENVAT scheme
istries to ensure that duty paid on input stage is offset
against duty payable at the fin al product stage and thus
prevent cascading effect of duty on final products.

effect from 10-9-2004 in place of earlier CENVAT CREDIT
RULES , 2002 AND SERVICE TAX CREDIT RULES,2O02

final products and service tax on output services. Credit

duty and vice versa.

setting up, modernization or repairs of a factory, services
relating to advertisement or sales promotion, management,
recruitment etc.

cenvat credit generally related to exercise where as the
calculation of cenvat credit is like vat the tax which is
paid at the time of purchase for excise goods and the tax
which need to pay at the time of sales- the tax which is
paid at the time of purchase is known as cenvat credit
while paying the tax three things will be taken in to
consideration.
"As cenvat credit which is availed from excise"
"As the cenvat credit can availed from service tax"
"He can avail either from these if he is not availed earlier"

so most of them choose which ever amount is lower that
amount they will avail as cenvat credit

i agree with the solution by mr. Ramkumar .. Nair. subject
to the one correction that "At the time of
selling his manufactured goods, he is liable to pay the
excise duty".Actully the manufacturer become liable to pay
immediately on the manufure of the final product not at the
time of sale of manufacure goods. Wallace floor mill CAse
and Bombay tyre international Ltd. (1983) case. Further
collection can be delayed till the sale of final good.
Reference of Articl 265 of constitution - for levy of
tax ...... Thus, practicly CCR can be utilized at the time
of sale of final good or provision of services. Conclusion
Mr. Ramkumar is otherwise correct. Keep it up. Regards....

cenvat credit is credit taken on input,input services and
capital goods. i.e for eg:- if any manufacturer purchased
any input for production than he has to pay to his supplier
the tax on that input, and when that maufacturer himself
make that input into finished goods and he sold that
finished goods to consumer,then he will charge the tax from
the consumer. And the amount charged by him from the
consumer will be set off from the amount which manufacturer
has paid earlier and the remaining amount left after set off
should be paid to government. this is known as cenvat credit.

In this case,
input is for produts
input services is for services recieved from service provider.
