One of the most crucial aspects of the GST regime is filing of proper and timely GST returns. As per the new regime every registered taxpayer is required to file three monthly returns along with one annual return which will result in filling of 37 returns annually. The details in the returns filed by the supplier shall be matched with the details in the returns filed by the recipient to avail the facility of the input tax credit.

The whole process of obtaining GST registration and filing of GST returns is facilitated electronically thus, the possibilities of tax evasion has been reduced drastically.
