    1. If it is expected to cross Rs. 10 Lakhs - then you can register right now itself
    2. In the first year - you pay service tax once the amt crosses Rs. 10 Lakhs and not before that. From second year onwards - you pay service tax from Day 1
    3. You can deposit the service tax any time in the quarter in which it is earned

    so from the second year onwards regardless if your income is less than 10 lakhs you have to deposit the service tax? For eg.: In year 1 when the amount crosses 10 lakhs you pay the tax but from the next year you pay in every quarter the service tax even if at the end of the year when you total your income it may not add up to more than 10 lakhs. Is that understanding correct?

    Hi - apart from ad sales, are people providing content services to foreign clients (deliverable sent through email, etc) also exempt from service tax?
