I'd a pleasant experience registering my consulting services firm for service tax. Instead of approaching an agency, my wife, who's a practicing CA, recommended to do it ourselves.
While she filled out the forms online, I got the required supporting documents ready - a rental agreement of the premises being rented for the firm, a NOC from owner for use as commercial premises and photocopies of my current address proof and PAN Card copy.
The whole process was done in a matter of 5 days from registration - ST-1 to receipt of confirmation ST-2 (including weekend). Would certainly recommend others to file service tax registration online.
It would certainly be nice if the Service Tax website is redesigned to make it more user friendly much like the Income Tax websites. Also, if auto-generated notification emails could be sent to the registered email id like we get for income tax filing would greatly help timely action.
