Service Tax Registration


Service tax is a tax levied on specified services provided by the service provider (including private businesses). Any person or company providing services in India is required to pay Service Tax. Service Tax has been increased in scope since its introduction and now has shifted to negative list regime from the earlier inclusive regime i.e. from 1st July, 2012 all the services are covered under service tax except those covered in the negative list. This tax is normally charged by the service provider from the person to whom service is provided and is then deposited in government’s account.


Section 69 of the Finance Act, 1994 read with Rule 4 of the Service Tax Rules, 1994 prescribe the manner and form for registration as an assessee, of any person liable to pay service tax in accordance with the provisions of Section 68 of the Finance Act, 1994. Below set, in brief is the procedure for registration:

  • An application for registration in Form ST-1 has to be made to the concerned Superintendent of Central Excise within 30 days from the date on which service tax becomes leviable. However, where a person has commenced his business for providing taxable services after the date when Service Tax is levied, the application for registration is to be made within 30 days from the date of commencement of business. Penalty is levied in case the service provider fails to seek registration within the prescribed time limits.

Mandatory Registration:

The service provider whose gross receipts exceeds Rs. 10,00,000/- (One Million Rupees) needs to be registered with the Service Tax Department. The gross receipt upto the extent of Rs. 10,00,000/- are exempt from Service Tax. However, this exemption is available only once till the gross receipts have not crossed the Rs. 10 lakh limit. Once the gross receipt exceeds Rs. 10 lakh, the services provider needs to collect and pay service tax on each billing.


In case service provider is providing services from multiple place of business, separate registration is required in respect of each premise from where the services are rendered. The application shall be filed in Form ST-1.


In case where the service provider is providing taxable services from more than one premises and has Centralised billing system, Centralised accounting system, he may at his option opt for the centralized registration for all such premises. other hand if taxable services are provided by the assessee from more than one premise, and he does not have a centralized billing system, he has to make a separate application for registration in respect of each of such premises. The application shall be filed in Form ST-1 with additional documents.


An office who is receiving only input services and not providing any output service can distribute the CENVAT Credit of the service tax paid on input services. An input service distributor must make an application for registration within 30 days from the commencement of business.

A certificate of registration in Form ST-2 shall be issued within 7 days from the date of receipt of the application in Form ST-1. However if the registration certificate is not granted within the 7-day period, the registration applied for shall be deemed to have been granted. In the latter case where registration is deemed to have granted a slight anomaly may arise owing to the non-allotment of registration number in the light of the fact that Circular No. V/DGST/30-Misc-29/2001/3674 dated September 18, 2003 read with the Service Tax Credit Rules, 2002 require all service providers providing taxable services to quote their registration number on their invoices.
