Advantages of GST Return Filing
|SINGLE PLATFORM||With the implementation of GST in India, the indirect taxes would be streamlined and standardized. Under the GST regime, businesses would no longer have to obtain multiple VAT registration in different States or obtain a separate VAT and Service Tax registration. A single GST registration for the respective state(s) in India from where the supply of goods and/or services will be sufficient.|
|CREDIBILITY||Proper compliance of filing return on time increases your credibility among your customers about the transparency of your transactions.|
|INPUT TAX CREDIT & REFUND||The prior condition for claiming refund & ITC is that the return must be filed by the assessee.|
|ONE NATION ONE TAX||GST subsumes various other taxes like Central Sales Tax, Additional Customs Duty, Purchase Tax, Luxury Tax, etc., Hence, under GST, many of the taxes in existence today would be subsumed and made into one tax. This would make tax collection and compliance easy for businesses across the country.|
|EASE OF DOING BUSINESS||Currently, many businesses like restaurants, computer sales, and services businesses have to comply with both VAT and Service Tax. This creates a compliance burden on the business, as they have to calculate taxes for the transaction based on different rates for different items. GST won’t make the distinction between goods and services which will, in turn, leads to relief to the business.|
|INCREASE TAX PAYERS VOLUME||GST will work on value addition concept and it is expected that new registration will come in existence to take to benefit of Input Tax in the Transaction chain. GST allows a seamless flow of input tax credit.|
|LOWER TAXES||Currently in some states under the VAT regime, businesses are required to comply with VAT regulations once they cross an annual turnover of Rs.5 lakhs. Under the GST regime, GST liability accrues only if an entity crosses an annual turnover of Rs.10 lakhs in northeast or hilly states, whereas, for the rest of India, the threshold is set at Rs.20 lakhs which ultimately leads to lower tax payment.|
