GST return simplification panel to meet industry, stakeholders this week

To seek views on simplification of return filing process

by Natasha Nadkar

The government appointed 10-member panel on GST returns under GSTN chairman Ajay Bhushan Pandey is expected to meet industry and stakeholders this week to seek their views on simplification of return filing process. The committee is likely to submit its report to the group of ministers (GoM) headed by Bihar deputy chief minister Sushil Modi. The GoM will finalise its recommendations by the month end and place it before the GST council. The return simplification committee is planning to bring in a process under which once the seller uploads the sales invoice on the GSTN portal, it would automatically show in their returns. A new system to simplify return filing process should be in place as early as possible, according to the GSTN chairman.
