GST Return Filing
Simplify compliance with CA assisted online GST return filing
What is GST Return filing?
Goods and Service Tax law now governs the major portion of the indirect tax system in India. The suppliers registered under this regime need to fulfill the compliance requirement regularly. Based on the turnover and the activities, the requirements and period of filing returns are prescribed under law.
With online GST return filing, the taxpayers intimate the Goods and Service Tax Network (GSTN) about the inflow and outflow of supplies including the amount of tax paid and collected. While recording the taxable transactions with the Government, the taxpayer is also required to pay the amount of tax collected from an outward supplier of goods or services after the deduction of Input Tax Credit (ITC).
Benefits of GST Return filing
Seamless flow of ITCC
The tax already paid by the supplier is deducted from the liability to pay taxes. If the tax paid and collected transaction is recorded through filing return by both the parties, the Input Tax Credit can be passed on to the buyer and not otherwise. The registered person cannot claim the input credit if the return is not filed on time.
Score higher compliance rating
To monitor the compliance structure, the GST Network has introduced the mechanism of compliance rating. This is where all the registered persons are provided ratings based on their regularity of fulfilling the compliance and payment of taxes. The compliance ratings are publicly available on the website. The regular taxpayer is ranked with higher compliance ratings.
Simple and common form for all taxes
Under the GST regime, three different types of taxes are collected – IGST, CGST & SGST. The information about all three taxes paid or collected is required to be recorded in a single form itself. The online filing system is simplified under this regime which and is further proposed to be more simplified through one form of filing for recording all transactions.
Avoid penalty and interest
For delay in filing return, the taxpayer is charged with a late fee of ₹ 50 for each day of a delay till the actual date of filing. To avoid such heavy penalties, the return must be filed without any delay. The taxpayers with no tax liability also have to file the returns to avoid the late fee of ₹ 20 for each day of delay. Interest at the rate of 18% p.a. is payable on the outstanding tax liability.
