Dear Professional Colleague,
Sub : Difficulties in effective implementation of the Service Tax Voluntary Compliance Encouragement Scheme, 2013
As you are aware “Service Tax Voluntary Compliance Encouragement Scheme, 2013 (STVCES)”, has been introduced by the Finance Act, 2013 to encourage and broaden the tax base in the Service Tax, wherein, the assessee having tax dues for the period beginning on or after 1.10.2007 and ending 31.12.2013 can declare the service tax liability to department on or before 31.12.2013.
The Institute of Chartered Accountant of India, in its endeavor to support the Ministry of Finance and see the success of the Scheme, has been in regular touch with Ministry and giving suggestions for its effective implementation. However, the professional/ assessee, may be having some difficulties/issue in compliance thereof.
If you have any such issue(s)/difficulties, please let us know latest by December 8, 2013 (Sunday) upto 5.00 p.m. at firstname.lastname@example.org so that a representation can be made to the Ministry on December 9, 2013 (Monday).
We hope your timely response well help us in sending the suggestion to the Ministry of Finance.
