Benefits of filing GST Returns:

  1. Elimination of the cascading effect:

Introduction of GST, has eliminated the several other taxes like service tax, customs duty, central excise duty and state level Value Added Tax (VAT). Therefore, GST has eliminated the cascading effect of tax on tax.

  1. Higher threshold benefits:

VAT was applicable for any business having an annual turnover of Rs.20 lakhs, and services having an annual turnover below Rs.10 lakhs did not have to pay service tax. Therefore, GST was introduced.

  1. Startup benefits:

It would be very difficult for any startup to pay the VAT during the initial stages, but as GST has replaced VAT, businesses can set off the service tax on their sales.

  1. Regulations and accountability:

Before GST, the tax system witnessed itself as disorganized. Currently, all taxes are paid online and major difficulties are now being eliminated that were a part of the tax filing system.
