A.   Previously, the assessees were able to view the filed returns using the option, 'View Original ST3'. This facility has been enhanced with a new feature by displaying in the return, the list of error codes (with corresponding error messages). This will help the assessees to know about the errors so that they can exercise the option of filing Revised return by rectifying the errors. This facility will be made available shortly and the exact date will be intimated on ACES website.

B.   As soon as the return uploaded by the assessee is accepted or rejected by the system, a system-generated message will be e-mailed to the assessee. The assessee can rectify the errors and file the corrected return.
Assessees who got registration on or after 01.07.2012 with 'All Taxable Services - Other than in the Negative List' or those who have amended their Registration by adding the description 'Other than in the Negative List', are required to file amendment to their Registration online and give the relevant description(s) of Taxable Service(s) available in the drop-down list in the online amendment form.
The status of the XML file of ST-3 return uploaded by the assessee can be ascertained after one business day of uploading the return by accessing 'RET > e-filing > view XML status'.
Revised ST-3 return can be filed within a period of 90 days from the date of filing the original return.
In case of any difficulty in accessing the ACES Application or in filing the ST-3 returns, the assessees can seek help of the ACES Service Desk by sending e-mail to aces.servicedesk@icegate.gov.in or calling up National Toll-free number 1800 425 4251. In general, the Service Desk functions on any working day from Monday to Friday between 9 AM and 7 PM & on Saturdays between 9 AM to 2.30 PM.
