Apr 02, 2018 | 1 year ago | Read Time: 2 minutes | By iKnowledge Team

Taxpayers will no longer face problems while filing taxes for businesses, as GST Network redesigns user interface.

To increase tax compliance, GST Network has now simplified the returns filing process for businesses (Form GSTR3B), by enabling technological tweaks, redesigns in the website, and more. Here’s a list of top 4 changes made on the tax-filing website, which we love, and we think you should know:

Better user interface & automatic filing enabled

The user interface has been revamped and the process has been redone. The improvements have made to ensure the user experience and filing process is more convenient. A help section has been provided on each page to make filing easier for taxpayers. You can also download a draft return at any stage to verify the details you’ve saved. Now, taxpayers must only fill CGST or SGST/UTGST amounts and the other tax amounts will be automatically filled by the system. With an easy to use interface, the GST network has ensured the tax-filing process becomes a user friendly one for tax payers.

Get an error free Input Tax Credit (ITC) score

Previously, users had reported that while filing taxes, there were errors with respect to utilization of input tax credit (ITC) and making the balance payment in cash. Now, there is limited scope for such errors. This is because the website now registers the current balance of ITC and cash as per the tax liability, and balance cash payment is all displayed under one table.

Auto-generated challans!

Earlier, when you had to prepare a challan, it was a laborious task, where in you had to manually fill the amount to be paid in cash. This sometimes led to filing the tax amount under the wrong header. With the new and improved website, the challan will be auto-generated after offsetting the input tax credit available in credit ledger, leaving no room for error.

Tax returns’ dashboard in an all new avatar

You can now answer some questions after entering the returns dashboard, thanks to a new functionality on the GST portal. Based on the answers, only the relevant tiles will be displayed, which means for taxpayers with ‘nil’ GSTR 3B returns no tile will be displayed. This functionality has been introduced to ensure there’s no confusion when you’re filing your returns.ITR Filing Process - Aegon Life

Tax filing now takes less time, which is good for businesses.  The various steps taken to improve the tax filing process for GSTR-3B have increased the speed and accuracy in the filing of these returns. The system is now not as rigid as it used to be with lower scope for errors.

With all these amazing changes, we are sure that the tax-filing process while filing GSTR-3 forms will be an easy ride. What more? All businesses can now file their returns quickly and accurately, post this improvement. So, don’t procrastinate, if you haven’t filed your returns yet, get on board, and file them now!
