GST compliance service aims to help corporates become GST compliant by providing end-to-end return filing solutions, to ensure the businesses remains 100% compliant. Since GST is all together new, it becomes difficult on the part of firms or companies to handle the compliances themselves as the organizations don’t have the in-house expertise to deal with GST law.
GST compliance consists of:
1. GST Registration

- For certain businesses, registration is mandatory under GST like for those registered under the pre GST Law, a casual taxable person, E-commerce aggregator, Non- Resident taxable person, person paying tax under Reverse charge mechanism, agent of a supplier and input service distributor.
- Penalty for non-compliance, in case of genuine errors like non-payment of tax or making short payments the penalty is of 10%of the tax amount subject to minimum of Rs.10, 000. However, penalty will be 100% of tax amount in case of deliberate evasion.
2. GST Return
- Filing of return under GST regime is very significant as non-compliance and postponement will cause in penalties and affect timely refunds.
- Every registered dealer is required to file GSTR-1 and GSTR-3B by 11th and 20th of the next month respectively.
- A dealer registered under the composition scheme is required to file GSTR-4 on a quarterly basis.
- An Input Service Distributor is required to file a monthly return GSTR-6.
- Registered taxpayers are required to file a yearly return as well in form GSTR-9 and every composition taxpayer shall file an annual return GSTR-9A.
