Hi all,

Is there any problem in uploading service tax return, actually i have uploaded ST-3 today, it cannot be uploaded as the error shows that " Uploaded XML structure is not valid, please verify the structure or log a complaint to service tax."

Please clarify as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance

This issue has started since 3 days, though the latest utility file was used. Send a mail to aces.servicedesk @ You may not get a response nor you can reach servicedesk over phone :) as it is always busy. But they would atleast know the magnitude of the issue.

It is not possible today to fill ST3 return on-line, due to slow speed. Also returns with multiple details are hard to fill on-line due to constant log-off issues. 

Upload facility is showing the same error as mentioned here. Any solutions???

Dear All,

instead of using latest ST3 utility (23-08-2013), use earlier version, because last date is tomorrow only.

Please find here enclosed earlier version (31-July-2013) file;

I think currently the ACES website is not accepting return, as the SAVE button is not active.


If any one is able to upload, using any tweak, then let us know.
