Last Updated at: May 02, 2020

Service tax returns must be filed twice a year, by April and October 25, for the periods October to March and April to September, respectively. The returns must quote all the monthly payments (or in the case of proprietors, quarterly) made to the government during these periods.

Returns are to be made in Form ST-3, following a simple format. There is no physical filing; all service tax returns must be filed online here.

Register your service tax

On arriving on the ACES website, login with the username and password allotted to you at the time of registration. If you’re filing returns for the first time (not yourself, but as a service provider), you would need to provide the list of services provided by you.

You can then proceed with the filing on ST-3, which should contain:

1. Value of taxable services billed
2. Value of taxable services realised
3. Amount of taxes paid

Even if you offer more than one service, you may file all in the same return. However, you would need to specify each service in ST-3. Any errors can be addressed within 90 days.
