What is Service Tax Registration?

Service tax is an indirect tax levied on a wide array of services specified by the Central Government under the Finance Act, 1994. The service provider (a restaurant or tour operator, for example) pays the tax and recovers the amount from its customers. The service provider must be registered with the Central Government if the preceding fiscal year's turnover is over Rs. 9 lakh. However, collection must start, at the rate of 15%, only when the turnover of the business exceeds Rs. 10 lakh. Once service tax is collected, if even for only a month, the service provider must continue to collect service tax, regardless of whether revenues fall below Rs. 10 lakh per annum. Service Tax is to be paid to the central government via designated branches or online once every quarter by LLPs, partnerships and sole proprietors and once every month by all other entities. Service tax returns must also be filed twice a year. The due dates are October 25 for the period April 1 to September 30 and April 25 for the period October 1 to March 31.
