  2. If your turnover is less than Rs.9 Lakhs, you need not to get registered. Once you are registered, you need to file the return half-yearly.

    Even if your turnover is less than Rs. 9 Lakhs but you have a Service Tax Registration - it is mandatory for you to file service tax returns in such a case as well.

    I have the same problem and I registered with Service Tax. Because i need my business name for opening an Current account and i don't have any proof for proprietorship. I spoke with a CA and they registered but they said you not need to pay service tax if turnover is below 9 lac. He said Only you have to fill the return with "Nil". Service tax not mandatory but showing "Nil" is mendatory.

    please help sir.
  5. you can go to service tax office & cancel your service tax number
    bcoz nil return filling not have an issue why you pay them without any reasion

    Service Tax Registration is a good legal proof of the existence of proprietorship firm.

    And it is good to have atleast 1 legal proof of the same.
