Transition of GST returns

Immediately after taking over the new regime government has started the simplification of return filing process under GST.It will be or not that time will tell but in this post we will try to explain the transition planned and salient features of proposed return filing scheme and forms

In this new system continuous uploading of invoices will be available so this will distribute the load on server that is being pushed on and around last date of filing of return in current system.Also since the invoices are being updated on real time basis the timely action can be taken way in advance before filing of return.

One important feature is no reversal of ITC in case of the supplier not paying the tax except for in special cases being missing dealer, closure of business by the supplier.

The first response of revenue administration in case of default in payment of tax shall be to recover it from seller.
