The service tax rate has been changed from 12.36% to 14% w.e.f. 1st June 2015.

With regard to Tour operators, i presume that you are enquiring about the abatement. There is no change in the same and the relevant notification can be accessed at:-

There are three categories under your industry:
1) Service by a tour operator in relation to package tour  -  3.50%
2) Service by a tour operator in relation to a tour if the tour operator is providing services of solely of arranging or booking of accommodation for any person. - 1.40%
3) Service provided by a tour operator other than the 2 type of services specified above. - 5.60%

Considering the above types you can charge the corresponding rate of Service tax applicable w.e.f from 1st June 2015.

Dear Sir,

In your case it is not clear under category of abatement does your company fall. But still there is no change in the rate of Abatement w.e.f. 1st June 2015.

So you are eligible for the same rate of abatement but the Base Rate of Service Tax which is 12.36% now will be 14% from 1st June 2015. Hence you can calculate your corresponding abatement on Base rate of 14% from 01st June 2015.
