    Service TAx form V1.4 not suitable for filing. As we have 2 rates in this period 12% for April & May. and 14% for June to September’15. But the form is like previous one that has only 1 option of providing rate of tax. So it will create problems?… –

    Only uploading the return in ACES does not mean the return filing process is completed. Checking the status of return filed in ACES is very essential. Only accepted return is complete return.

    Yes, it will be greatful if the due date is extended, as intervening pooja holidays. So everyone, will be comfortable enough. Month beginning also holidays for payment compliance and month end pooja holidays, will be bit pressure on the corporate assessees who are having the system of reviewing and approving for ST-3 Return filing.
