Role of Technology for GST Compliance
With GST the government intends to achieve two major goals:
1. Reduce tax evasion, and,
2. Simplify compliance for tax payers.
In the prevailing tax systems, there are several cases where the government has not been able to detect evasion and loss of tax revenues. As a result, it has become a challenge for the department concerned to track the input claims against the liability of the seller. There have also been numerous cases of duplication of claims on input tax, fraudulent claims, input tax claims that do not correspond with tax liability declared by the seller, or seller who has not furnished his tax liability.
In order to overcome this, GST has introduced technology. By giving GST Suvidha Provider (GSP) and Application Service providers (ASP) Licenses to tech companies for developing software solution for GST compliance.
Key features of these software are:-
1. Automated Tax Returns Process
2. Smart Reporting & MIS
3. Historical Data
