One of the most radical changes brought in by the GST regime will be the scheme of regulatory compliance. Earlier service tax providers, registered under centralised registration scheme of the Central Government, on one hand, they were required to file only two returns in a year, along with annual return. On the other hand, the manufacturing sector which has vaster experience of working within tax regulatory framework was required to file monthly Excise and VAT return being state specific. The regulatory frameworks under State laws were complex and divergent.

 

Under the new GST regime 27 different types of returns have been prescribed. One needs to understand the scope of these returns and need to file only those specific returns that are applicable on the registered person.
