In an effort to plug goods and services tax (GST) evasion and frauds and ease compliance, the existing GST return filing system is being enhanced to have an in-built invoice matching system to determine input tax credit and liability. The returns will be auto-populated to minimize errors, ease reconciliation and simplify compliance.
The group of ministers (GoM) on Information Technology (IT) led by Bihar deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi took stock of the preparedness and the timelines in a meeting held on Friday.
