    How To Comply With The Gst In The Annual Report For The Year 2021?

    On July 1, 2017, India began to apply its Goods and Services Tax (GST), and as of today, more than 1.3 crore firms have registered for GST registration. According to the GST instructions, businesses subject to GST are required to submit their annual returns by the specified deadline.

    Regardless of the firm's sales or business activity during the return filing period, a company must submit GST returns if its annual revenue exceeds two crores. Nevertheless, whether they are large or little, all firms that are subject to GST registration are required to submit their GST returns before the deadline.
