SERVICE TAX REGISTRATION PROCEDURE

SERVICE TAX REGISTRATION PROCEDURE

Every person liable to pay service tax is required to register himself by making an application to SCE as per section 69. The service provider before registering himself shall ensure that he has crossed the exemption limit of registration for the small service provider which is Rs. 10 lakhs, specified by notification 6/2005 ST dated 01.03.05 as amended from time to time. Branded service providers i.e providing services under brand name or trade name of others, would not be admissible for the exemption. The provisions under service tax with regard to registration not only require the assessee to register himself when he starts providing a taxable service, but also to amend his certificate of registration every time there is a change in his business profile. He is also required to state at the time of registering as whether he wants to opt for centralized registration or not. This option can be exercised even at a later date in which case, he would have to get his Registration Certificate amended. Apart from a service provider, even a service receiver who is liable to pay service tax u/s 68(2) of Chapter V of Finance Act 1994 would be required to register himself under service tax for the purpose of paying service tax. The requirement as to registration would also extend to an Input Service Distributor who would want to distribute Cenvat credits on inputs, input services or capital goods to the unit providing taxable service or engaging in manufacturing of dutiable final products. The procedures with regard to registration under service tax in each of the scenarios would basically be the same with very minor changes which would be evident on the application for registration.

Steps and Procedure of registration

1.     The assessee shall make an application in form ST 1 to the Superintendent of Central Excise in duplicate. Such application can be filed online www.aces.gov.in. For this the following procedure shall be adhered to :

a)    The user shall first log onto the site aces.gov.in and select “Service Tax” option on the left side of the screen

b)   He shall then register himself by clicking on “New users to click here to register with ACES” option. On clicking the same he will be required to give certain basic details and a e-mail id. The password for such registration will be sent to this mail id.

c)    On submitting the form the password will be sent to the ID above and the user shall login into ACES with this password. Such a password is only to gain access to ACES and it does not imply that registration with the department is done.

d)   In the case of an existing assessee, he shall fill in the “Declaration Form for ACES” (in Appendix I) and submit it to the respective commissionerate. The assessee will then receive a user ID and password at the mail ID specified in such form to activate his registration number in ACES. An existing assessee is NOT required to fill Form ST-1 again in ACES.

e)    For a new assessee who does not have a service tax registration certificate, shall register with ACES with the ID and password that is sent as mentioned in ‘c’ above and select the option “REG” and “Fill ST-1”.

f)    The form shall be filed online with all the required details and submitted online itself.

g)    A print of the form submitted online shall be taken and along with this the documents as mentioned in 5 below shall be submitted to the department at the concerned commissionerate.

2.    The application shall be filed within 30 days from the date of providing taxable service and shall bear the address sought to be registered

3.    The application should be filled up carefully without errors and columns and boxes which are not applicable may contain “NA” stated across them. All the taxable services provided should be mentioned on the application and there would not be separate applications for each of such taxable services

4.    The Form should be signed by the director/partner/sole proprietor as the case may be or the authorized signatory.

5.    The application shall be accompanied by copies of the following documents -

·         Self certified copy of PAN, (where allotment is pending, copy of the application for PAN may be given)

·         Copy of MOA/AOA in case of Companies

·         Copy of Board Resolution in case of Companies

·         Copy of Lease deed/Rental agreement of the premises

·         A brief technical write up on the services provided

·         Registration certificate of Partnership firm

·         Copy of a valid Power of Attorney where the owner/MD/Managing Partner does not file the application

6.    Once filed, the acknowledgement for having filed the application is to be obtained on the duplicate copy for one’s own reference

7.    If the Particulars stated in the Form are correct, then the registration certificate would be provided within a period of seven days. Where not so provided, the registration is deemed to have been granted.

Centralized registration

Centralised registration is opted for in a case where the accounting and billing operations of the assessee are centralized in an administrative office which may be a branch or Head Office despite the services being provided from more than one location. The premises that is registered here is the one where the centralized accounting and billing is done. This decision is at the option of the tax payer and he can also opt to have multiple registration which however may not be advisable. The procedure would be the same as explained above with a few exceptions -

1.     The registration in case of centralized registration would be granted by the Commissioner of Central Excise having jurisdiction over the centralized premises

2.    The registration formality at the department’s end takes a little longer than the period stated above and the concept of deemed registration need not apply here.

The following documents are required in addition to the documents needed under the aforesaid procedure -

a. Proof of address of each such premises or branches for which centralized registration is sought

b. Proof of address of branches, new offices opened if any

The PLACE to BE registered IS THE place from where the service to be provided.There are two types of NATURE OF SERVICE one is visible like works contractin EPC and another is non visible like supply of tangible goods.. In this situation of visible service,the place from where the service is provided becomes the site office place where the branch sales tax regn is taken and where the activity is monitored and executed including selection of vendors and sub contractors for sometime to complete the nature of service whereas in the case of tangible goods service, once the decision is taken at administrative level in the corporate office, no further monitoring is necessary at the site office.can we say that the places from where the service is being provided are different for getting registration(ie) site office in the case of WCS SERVICE AND ADMN OFFICE where billing is done in the case of tangible goods service.pl enlighten me my learned readers

Hi
I have a proprietorship firm. I had taken my service tax number initially when we had taken the pan number for the firm. Later we requested and took the Pan card in properietor name and gave an application to Income tax department wrt the same. However the service tax department was also informed. And now we have changed our location as well. How do we inform the service tax department so that a new service tax is allotted to us on the basis of our pan card and address.
Thanks

Query of service tax:
I am a consultant and my annual turnover is less than Rs 10 lakhs.
Since my turnover is less than Rs 10 lakhs, I do not charge any service tax from my clients to maintain competitive charges.
In march 2012 one of my client ( a service provider) is insisting to pay service tax on my charges (in spite of my turnover to be less that Rs 10.000 lakhs), so what I need to understand

(1) Deposit the service tax recd. from him in March 2012 it self and,
(2) I do not have to pay any service tax on payments received from other clients on which I have not recd. any service tax from them.
thanks
