Service Tax in nutshell

•You get an exemption from Gst payments if your gross revenue has not crossed Rs.10 Lacs in a year. This is a kind of shelter for small businesses and once you have crossed Rs. 9 Lacs of turnover in a particular financial year, you should apply for the Gst registration.
•Once you receive the Gst registration, you may start charging to your customers additionally for Gst. Please note that Gst is your responsibility to pay, irrespective of whether you have charged your customer service tax additionally or not.
•Service tax exemption of Rs. 10 Lacs is based on your turnover in the previous financial year. This means if your turnover has been 10 Lacs or more in the previous financial year, you need to pay Gst on each and every rupee in the current financial year (irrespective of your current turnover).
•E.g. You started your business in FY 2005-06 and your turnover in FY 2005-06 was 5 lacs, FY2006-07 was 12 lacs, FY 2007-08 was 9 lacs, FY 2008-09 was 15 lacs and FY2009-10 was 8 lacs. This is how you shall traverse in Gst. You should register for Gst in FY FY2006-07 when you cross 9 lacs of turnover and start collecting/ paying service tax on your revenues more than 10 lacs (in the above example on 2 lacs of turnover). In FY 2007-08 you should pay service tax on complete 9 lacs. In FY 2008-09 you may choose not to pay Gst till you cross 10 lacs of turnover (please note that you should also not collect the Gst in this case till 10 lacs of turnover). In FY2009-10 you again have to pay Gst on each and every rupee (here 8 lacs).
•Currently export of services is exempted from Gst. This exemption is applicable for calculating 10 Lac limits.
•You may choose to obtain a Gst registration before crossing 10Lac specified limit. The above example helps you to understand how Gst will be applicable.
• You get a set off of Gst. This means if you have paid Gst while availing services of another company or person, then the same can be set off from your Gst payments and the balance should be deposited with the Government. Set off is applicable for related activities only and provided you have not claimed 10 lac exemption during the period.
•Service tax s are required to be filed every half year. If you have not done any business during a half year period then NIL s should be filed in time else you may have to incur penalty for late
