    I read an article which mentioned that a company needs to apply for Service Tax no. within 30 days of company's services' reach 9Lakh amount.
    But, can we apply for Service tax number from the start (Inception of the company) and still avail examption till 10 Lakh rupees?

    I want to get the exemption. Getting a Service Tax number from the start would help me in document process when my company deals with other companies and there is a requirement for lot of proofs and paperwork.

    I am getting varied from different CAs across the city. Please help and if possible post a link or details of the government article/proof.
