Payment of service tax is based on receipts and payments

In your case service tax liability will have to be paid only after receipt of payment

for eg. you have raised a bill on 15th Feb and the bill gets paid on 8th June

Then you have to pay service tax to the government treasury on 5th of July if paid in cash or if paid through electronic medium i.e. e-payment then on 6th of July 2008 in the instance case
