Dear experts,

Please tell me that is it compulsory to pay late fees for Late filing of service tax return ?

or late fees can be paid only if department send the notice to pay the late fees ?

Is it a fees or penalty ?

e.g. If six monthly return for six months ending 30.09.2010 is filed on 31.12.2010 then is it compulsory to pay the late fees of Rs.2000/- ?
