What is Service Tax Registration?
Service tax is an indirect tax levied on a wide array of services specified by the Central Government under the Finance Act, 1994. The service provider(a restaurant or tour operator, for example) pays the tax and recovers the amount from its customers.
To pay this tax, the service provider must be registered with the Central Government if the precedingfiscal year’s turnover is over Rs. 9 lakh. However, collection must start, at the rate of 14.5%, onlywhen the turnover of the business exceeds Rs. 10 lakh. Service Tax is to be paid to government via designated ranches once every quarter by LLPs, partnerships and sole proprietors and once every month by all other entities.

What You Need To Know
Not on Exports
Service tax applies only to services sold within India; exports are, therefore exempt from this registration.Therefore, if you’re billing a US-based client for, say,web development work, you don’tneed to add service tax.
Service Tax Registration is mandatory for all service providers (as defined under the Act) with a turnover of over Rs. 9 lakh. Failure to apply would result in penalties of Rs. 5,000 or Rs.200 a day, whichever is higher. Failure to collect service tax, once applicable, would also result in steep fines (capped at the amount owed)
No Going Back
Service Tax must be collected when your revenues are Rs. 10 lakh or over. But once this you cross this mark, you must always collect the tax even if your turnover is less than this in subsequent years.
