Online GST Return Filings - Overview
GST (Goods and Service Tax) is an indirect tax in India imposed by the Central government effective from 1st July, 2017. Since then, many old indirect taxes have been converted into GST. From the beginning of purchasing of raw materials and end to sale products to the consumers, GST is applicable. As a result, small to large enteritis are required to GST return filing. To make the process easy and smooth Tax Seva Kendra has created an online GST e-Filing Service for Indian business owner.
