Hi Experts,

I have a question, I'm resident of India and providing web development services outside India and receiving payments in $. I would like to know that the payments I received is exempted from services tax in India? 

If Yes, do I need to take any EXIM numbers as I'm receieving payments in $ ?

and If I'm exempted do I need to file service tax return or not ?

This is all I want to know about.

Really thankfull that you spent time on reading my question and replying the same.
