The documents listed above along with the requisite information must be submitted online. On filing the ST-1 service tax registration application online, the applicant must submit a self attested copy of the above documents by registered post/speed Post to the concerned Division, within 7 days for the purposes of verification. If the documents and information submitted are acceptable, service tax registration would be granted within 2 days of filing ST-1 online – based on trust.

**How can I register as a new assessee ?** ACES system has a two step process for New Registrations? a. First step is user registers with the ACES software online after selecting applicable Central Excise Portal or Service Tax Portal from the website www.aces.gov.in to become an ACES user. b. Second step is the user fills up appropriate registration form and becomes an Assessee. **What is registration with ACES application and registration with Central Excise or Service Tax department? How do they differ?** With a view to automate and facilitate transactions of the assessees with the department a web based software project called ACES is introduced. To transact business online all users have to first register with ACES. This registration is not a statutory registration as envisaged in Central Excise or Service Tax Act but only a registration with the system. To register with the Central Excise or Service Tax department you are required to submit statutory registration form such as A1, A2, A3, ST1 etc online. **Who is an ACES user?** Any user who has filled in ACES user registration details, but not yet filled A1/A2/A3 forms is a ACES user How do I become an ACES user? You can log onto the www.aces.gov.in through internet and click on ?Click here to Register with ACES? link and go through a process called ?ACES user Registration?, by selecting a user name and furnishing credentials like e-mail id, Unit Name, Designation and Phone Number. The system will then generate a password and send it by e-mail. How does one log in to ACES once registered as an ACES user? User will be selecting a user name which will be the user id initially. A system generated password is mailed on the e-mail address as mentioned in the ACES Registration details which can be used for logging into the system. After I become an ACES user, how do I get converted to Assessee? After re-login as mentioned in question above, user can proceed with the statutory registration with the department, by filling-in Forms A1/A2/A3 or ST1 or Declarant form as the case may be, to become an Assessee. What happens when an ACES user logs into ACES for the first time? On first Login user will be compelled to change the password and choose a new password, a hint question and answer. What should I do after logging in to start the Registration Process in ACES? In the login screen, select REG -> A1/A2/A3 or ST1 or Declarant select (form) and start filling the form with the details. How do I know about which statutory registration form I need to fill? Once you successfully login into the ACES application, the homepage displays the different statutory forms i.e. A1, A2, A3, Declaration and Non Assessee OR ST1 for Service Tax in tabular format mentioned with their category. You can choose as per the category your business falls under. Is there an offline tool available for uploading Registration to the ACES, similar to that of Offline Returns? There is no offline tool available currently for Registration, through which registration can be filled and uploaded directly to the database. TOP^ Can departmental officer file Registration forms on my behalf? Yes, the range Superintendent can file a Registration on behalf of user if user desires so. The Superintendent has rights of filing the A1/A2/A3 or ST1 and Non Assessee forms. If user is not able to file the Registration through the Assessee interface then user can contact the range officer for filing the Registration on behalf of user. What are the details I should have for filling registration application? Some of the details you should have are ? PAN ? Details of authorized signatories and all partners/directors/trustees etc ? Details of Bank account numbers ? Details of registration numbers under Companies Act, Sales Tax Act, IE code etc. ? Details of goods /raw materials used. Is it mandatory to fill all the fields in the forms? Only those fields marked with asterisk (?*?) in ACES application are mandatory fields and the same are to be filled before proceeding further Can an Assessee register with ACES if one does not have PAN ? Yes, Though ACES has a PAN based registration process, but if an Assessee does not have PAN, can still register with a Temporary Registration No. How to select Commissionerate/Division and Range in respective dropdown during the filling of forms? Please help. Once you identify the Commissionerate name and select it, you can select the Division/Range from the list of Divisions/ranges which is fetched by the system when the page gets refreshed. How to select the category of Taxable Service? To select the services for which you want to register, in ST1 form, click on the Search button with the magnifying glass. A list of services will be displayed in which the checkboxes on the left of the required services can be ticked to select them. Can I add/delete Services? Yes, in case where the activities undertaken by the user falls under different categories, he can select all the relevant services from the search list and add it to the relevant column. After adding, if he want do delete any services selected, he can delete selecting its check box and then pressing Delete button. TOP^ How to go to next page after first page? If there are more than one page in the form say A1 Form, then ?Next? button is used to navigate to next page. In case of single page Form, Save button allows user to go to confirmation page. Can I modify the previous page of the form before submission? Yes, you can make changes in the previous pages. In case of multi page forms, you can navigate through ?Previous? button and can make changes.
