The Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN) has been under scrutiny for tax evasion, according to the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC). The GSTN is the IT backbone of the GST system, and it is responsible for processing and reconciling invoices and returns for all registered taxpayers.
The CBEC suspects that some taxpayers have been using the GSTN to evade taxes by under-reporting their sales and purchases. The CBEC has initiated an investigation into the matter and has asked the GSTN to provide data on all transactions since the implementation of the GST on July 1, 2017.
The investigation is ongoing, and the CBEC has not yet released any findings. However, the scrutiny of the GSTN has raised concerns among taxpayers, who fear that they may be targeted unfairly.
If you are a small or medium business owner or a startup founder in India, it is essential to get GST-ready before July 1st. The GST is a comprehensive tax reform that will replace all indirect taxes levied on goods and services by the central and state governments.
Here are some tips to help you get GST-ready:
The GSTN is under scrutiny for tax evasion, but the investigation is ongoing, and no findings have been released yet. As a business owner, it is essential to get GST-ready before July 1st to ensure compliance with the new tax regime. Register for GST, get a GSTIN, know the GST rates, get GST software, and file your GST returns on time. By doing so, you can avoid any penalties and ensure that your business runs smoothly under the new GST regime.
