Last Date to File ST 3 Return July 12 to Sep 12 & Revised Form ST 3

Posted In Service Tax | Notification | No Comments »

Instruction regarding Notification No. 1/2013- Service Tax dated 22-2-2013 which seeks to amend the Service Tax Rules 1994 so as to prescribe the revised return Form ST3 and also stipulate that the last date for filing a return for the period July 2012 to September 2012, is 25th March 2013.

F. No. 137/98/2006-CX-4 ( Part-I), Dated- 22nd February 2013
Subject: Revised Form ST 3
Attention is invited to this office letter dated 28th September 2012 issued from F. No 137//22/2012-Service Tax ( copy of which can be accessed at www.cbec.gov.in) , wherein it was informed , inter alia, that in the ST- 3 return which was due by 25-10-2012, assessees had to provide data only for the period 1-4-2012 to 30-6-2012 . It was also informed therein that data for the period 1-7-2012 to 30-9-2012 would have to be furnished in a return in a revised format and that the revised format of the return and the last date for filing it would be indicated separately.
2. Data for the remaining portion of the half year ( i.e 1-7-2012 to 30-9-2012 ) can now be furnished by the assessees in the revised Form ST3 , which has been notified vide notification 1/2013 –Service Tax dated 22- 2-2013 . Since ordinarily this would have formed part of the return , the due date of which was 25th October 2012, rule 7(2) of the Service Tax Rules 1994 has also been amended vide the same notification, so as to provide that the last date for filing the return covering the period 1-7-2012 to 30-9-2012 is 25-3-2013. It is clarified that when filing this return, assessees need to fill in data only for the period 1-7-2012 to 30-9-2012.
3. The paper version has to be notified for legality( reference paragraph 2 above). It must however be borne in mind that in terms of rule 7(3) of the Service Tax Rules 1994, all returns have to be filed electronically. The electronic version, to be completed by the assessee, may therefore differ in certain aspects from the paper version. For example, for certain fields, drop down menus from which an option has to be chosen, will be there in the electronic version but not in the paper version . Similarly provisions in the electronic version to add rows or validate entries cannot be appropriately indicated in the paper version. The revised Form ST-3 is expected to be available on ACES by the first week of March. However in the event of any delay , the last date will be suitably extended and adequate time given so that no inconvenience is caused to the assessees. The assessees are advised to access the ACES website wherein updates will be given.
4. The objective behind revising the ST-3 form has been to retain the existing structure, which both the assessees and the departmental officers are familiar with, while making some changes required after 1-7-2012. Assessees are expected to fill in service wise data as before, for effective use of the data available consequent to the restoration of accounting codes. In the interregnum, the assessee might not be able to do so, as duty payment was not required to be service wise. While recognizing this difficulty, assessees are requested to provide service wise data, to the extent possible, for this period also.
5. The above information may be communicated to departmental officers and assessees. Hindi version to follow.
Yours faithfully,
(S.M. Tata)

Zero Tolerance for Malpractice and Corruption in Tax Dept


The Revenue Secretary has issued an Office Memorandum dated 22.01.2013 in which he has expressed concern over the searches/ investigations conducted by the Anti-Corruption branch of the CBI on the officers of the CBDT & CBEC and the complaints alleging misconduct by the officers in their official conduct of duties.
