Dear Rajeev, you have to calculate interest from the due date of service tax payment upto the date of actual service tax payment. If you are the proprietor then your due dates of service tax payment is quarerly and due dates of the same are 5th July, 5th Oct, 5th Jan and 31st March. You have to calculate interest amount till the date of actual payment @ 13% on Service Tax + Ed.Cess + H.S.Ed. Cess.
You have to pay simple interest from the due date to actual date of payment. There is no interest on interest on payment of interest subsequent to actual payment of service tax.
