Service tax assesses to file annual return

Although, with the government resorting to implement unified taxation regime GST in near future, it was hoped that the number of returns to be filed by an assessee would reduce substantially and this has been done in case of Central Excise Assessees which is highly appreciated by the trade and industry. However, at the same time, service tax assessees will be required to file Annual Return in addition to the half yearly returns presently filed by them. This has been done by amending Rule 7 of the Service Tax Rules, 1994 which will be applicable with effect from 01.04.2016. This article is an attempt to analyse the probable consequences of the amendment.
