Service tax return applicability

A person has registered under Service Tax since total value of taxable service during the year exceeded 9 Lakh, but has not collected or paid any service tax since total value of taxable services didn't exceeded 10 Lakh. Now for next year, is he liable to charge service tax from clients and pay to government from first day or the liability will only come once value of taxable service crosses 10 Lakh.

Also is he required to file FORM ST 3 even if service tax payment is nil and no service tax is collected from clients.

Thanks in Advance,
