Cancellation of Service Tax registration


Hello to everyone,

I run a proprietary firm in Mumbai. I have registered for Service Tax Number in Mumbai three years ago, and now wish to cancel my Service Tax registration because I am changing my profession, and will now not need to charge for services.

Can someone please let me know the procedure and forms that need to be filled?

Best regards,
Kunal

Write a letter to service tax dept and submit ST-2 original copy along with last 3 years returns in dept and take a surrender receipt of service tax letter.

Dear Mr. Mishra,

Thank you for your reply with the details. Refering to your mention on 3 years returns, I have not filed even nil returns till today. I was supposed to charge separately for training for the machine I sold, but my clients bargain that training be done free. As such, I could not even raise a single training bill.

Now anyways, I am not going to conduct trainings, but will be a pure trader. And so I need to cancel the setvice tax registration. Will they create problems for me or charge me penalties for the late filings, or should I fill the ST3 form for each 6 monthly period of the last three years and submit that alongwith the ST2 original copy?

Much appreciate your help,
Kunal

Hi Kunal,

I have something different to tell you.....!!

If you have not collected and so not deposited any Service Tax to Governement then you need not file the returns of the last three years. Only a person liable to pay Service Tax  is required to file return of Service Tax meaning by if your aggregate annual turnover for the year is not greater than 10 lakh and so you have not collected and deposited the Service Tax to Government you can surrender the Certificate without filling the returns.

Make sure you file returns only if you got your turnover at the year end greater than 10 lakh and so collected and deposites the Service Tax to Governemnt.
