  8. Service Tax Payable is calculated by software while service Tax paid amount you have to enter manually. so there may be round off diffrences.

  14. see reply to other questions here; Since 2009 October, all registration certificate for service tax provider is generated in electronic format only ; even all the old registrations are now transferred to the site: aces.gov.in ; Ask your Service Tax Department Officer to get you user id and password for you; you can then log on to the site and fill up your return online or you can download the file and fill it and then upload to the site. It is very simple. If you file manual, paper copy, officials will scrutinize it thoroughly whereas if you file online, the check will be done by computer and you will be safely permitted to file a correct return, thereby your return will not be picked up for scrutiny.

  18. What you require is available in aces.gov.in ; use your user id and password registered there when you applied for registration.

  19. Nothing could be understood from your language; take care to frame your question in such a way that there is no spelling mistake and that the other person clearly understands what you need ; and do not assume the other person can easily understand your problem. Give all basic details.

  20. You have to get registered in electronic format through the website aces.gov.in ; if your registration certificate was issued to you without registering in aces.gov.in, you cannot file return. You should have a user-id and password to log on to that site; you do not need any print-out of ST3 return to file the return.

  21. If already you are registered in S.Tax through ACES online application, what might have happened is that your application was accepted and you were issued with physical copy of Regn. Certificate. The Dept. did not complete the execution in online mode after taking a print out. If that mistake was done, then you cannot see the menus relating to return-filing or other events. Even it may indicate that you cannot pay the tax in the banks because your registration code was not transferred to your bank. Hence you have to check whether you received electronic mail in your account about the completion of the registration process after you were given print-out of registration.
