    Dear Sir,
    My employer’s receipts will reach 9,85,200 for FY 2012-13 but will not cross 10 lakhs. We are not charging service tax to our clients because it was pre-calculated that receipts will not cross 10 lakhs

    While efiling for July-Sept2012 period, i have not mentioned exemption notification number and entered value of taxable service as 0 (nil) as well as service tax collected as 0(nil) as suggested by external service tax professional to file a nil return.

    Do we need to rectify filing?
