**PROCEDURE TO FILE SERVICE TAX RETURN** There are two methods of filling the return electronically, namely: Online filing of data in service tax return and then submit it. Offline filing of data using excel utility and then upload it. Firstly login into ACES account Under RET menu click on ‘fill’ option of ‘fill ST-3′ sub-menu i.e. RET Menu Fill ST-3 Fill. Premises code and address will appear Click on the hyper link to prepare ST 3 return After filing the return correctly Click on the ‘SAVE’ Button appearing on last page and confirmation page of ST-3 will appear To submit return press the submit button After successful submission confirmation will appear with unique number. For offline method just download the form in xml file and fill it and upload on the website Thanks
