SERVICE TAX RETURN JULY,12 TO SEP,12 DUE DATE EXTENDED

SHARE:

There are major changes in service tax wef 01.07.2012 with the introduction of Negative list regime. Due to these changes ,Service tax return of first half year of Fy 2012-13 was broken in to two quarters i.e April 12 to June,12  and July,12 to Sep,12. As you know that Service tax return is required to filed through online mode only but ACES website was not made ready to accept the return for first quarter even after extension of  time and first quarter return was filed by public through offline utility only.

Department bad luck was not for the first quarter only ,its continued .The second major mistake they have done that after introduction of negative list ,the department has abolished the separate service tax Accounting code for each service and introduced a single Accounting code for all service but at later stage restored the Accounting code for  120 service again.This has been done in between 2nd quarter of Fy 2012-13 .So taxpayer has deposited the tax for second quarter  in respective codes as well as in single codes.

The third time unlucky is that  due date for second quarter i.e July 2012 to September,12 has been announced recently as 25.03.2013(Notification 1/2013 dated 22.02.2013).whereas no facility has been provided to upload the return at ACES ,so department has issued a circular that return form will be available online in first week of March,2013.At that time we have already shown  our doubt on departments  commitment  and mentioned in out earlier pot  that due date for second quarter will surely be extended .

Now ,the department has extended the Due date to file online Service tax return for the period 01.07.2012 to 30.09.2012 from 25.03.2013 to 15.04.2013 

(notification not yet available ,we will provide you details as soon as possible)

ACES website is running following script on their website



CBEC extends the date of e-filing of the new Service Tax Return (ST-3) for the period from 1st July 2012 to 30th September 2012, from 25th March, 2013 to 15th April, 2013.                       The electronic version of the ST 3 Return is under development and is expected to be available on ACES around 20th March, 2013.                       The exact date of the availability of the new ST 3 return in ACES for the period AprilJuly-JuneSeptember, 2012 and for the period October, 2012 - March, 2013 will be announced later.                                             For details please see Help Section.                                                                    E-filing of Service Tax Returns (ST-3) made mandatory for All Assessees wef 01.10.2011

***
New Delhi, dated the 6th March, 2013

Order No: 01/2013-Service Tax


            In exercise of the powers conferred by sub-rule(4) of rule 7 of the Service Tax Rules, 1994, the Central Board of Excise & Customs hereby extends the date of submission of the  Form ST-3  for the period from 1st July 2012 to 30th September 2012, from 25th March, 2013 to  15thApril, 2013.
           
The circumstances of a special nature, which have given rise to this extension of time, are as follows:  

a)   The Form ST-3 is expected to be available on ACES around  20th  March, 2013.
b)   This will result in all the assessees attempting to file their returns in a short time period, which may result in problems in the computer network and further delay and inconvenience to the assessees.

==========================================================
Further they have also informed that new ST-3 online return form for the period 01.07.2012 to 30.09.2012 is  expected to be available  by 20.03.2013.

We wish them Best of Luck this time.

But one more issue they have not resolved yet ,that is due date for second half yearly return for Fy 2012-13.The point to be noted that due date for service tax return  second half year i,e October ,2012 to March,2013 still remain 25.04.2013. But we hope that that will also be extended .

update :Due date to file service tax return from 10/2012 to 03/2013 extended to 31.08.2013 from 25.04.2013

But we can't understand here that when department it self is not ready to accept online return (even after 9 months) then why they are wasting our time  by issuing due date First instance and then extensions again and again ?and what about second half yearly return ,for that return another date extension notification will be issued !!!oh!!!and expect from us that we should do every thing on time.We we are late then pay penalty and if they are late ,extend date ,why they can't be penalise ?

update :Due date to file service tax return from 10/2012 to 03/2013 extended to 31.08.2013 from 25.04.2013
