Mastering GST Return Filing | Simplify Your Tax Compliance Efforts

Goods and Services Tax (GST) Return is a document containing details of income that a taxpayer is required to file with the tax administrative authorities. This document is used by tax authorities to calculate tax liability. Under GST, a registered dealer has to file GST returns, including Sales, Purchases, Output GST (on sales), and Input tax credit (GST paid on purchases).

Why GST Return Filing?

Every registered business is required to file GST returns providing details of their sales, purchases, input tax credit, and output GST. These returns help calculate a business’s tax liability. Filing GST returns on time is not only a legal requirement but also crucial for maintaining your business’s compliance and reputation.
