File your GST Return

The Goods and Service Tax (GST), an indirect tax or consumption tax, is used in India to tax the supply of goods. It is a multistage, comprehensive, destination-based tax. Comprehensive because it includes almost all indirect taxes, except for a few state taxes. It is multi-staged and imposes GST at each stage of the production process. However, it is intended to be refunded all parties involved in the different stages of production, other than the final consumers. As a destination-based tax it is collected at point of consumption, not point of origin as previous taxes.Under GST framework, a registered business owner has to file GST returns that includes:
  1. Sales
  2. Purchases
  3. Input tax credit (GST paid on purchases)
  4. Output GST (on sales)
