Centre assesses gargantuan GST Violations that have arisen from unregistered taxpayers

It is truly undeniable that for systematic implementation of any trailblazing economic move, there is imperative need of its widespread propagation to the ultimate level. Any loophole in this step might pave way for irregularities in near future. This is exactly what is happening in the current scenario of indirect taxes. It is a matter of utmost consideration for the whole nation that the Commercial Taxes Department has recently revealed violations of tax payments since the advent of GST regime in India. To some degree, this may relate to the sluggish online GST registration process in India.

On painstakingly auditing the accounts, the department has ascertained tax evasion of up to ₹1,000 crores. Furthermore, the officials have established that the majority of these tax defaulters are those who had already disclosed their tax liabilities while filing their returns during the VAT regime but have not yet remitted the same since the introduction of GST. This portion of taxes exactly accounts to ₹708 crores. This clearly points towards the fact that there are still millions in the country who have not gone through the GST registration procedure. No doubt, the process of GST registration is in full swing since the implementation of the economic move in July 2017, there is nonetheless minuscule scope of deferral in the process, and this gap needs to be timely filed.

However, according to the senior officials of the department, there has been a tremendous pace of online registrations for GST, owing to which there has been a gargantuan tax collection at the rate nearly ₹3,000 crores. As compared to this substantial tax collection, the aforesaid amount of tax irregularities might seem trivial enough to be overlooked, but they can surely cost much over a period of time.

In this regard, the department has maintained that the large chunk of the tax assesses of the erstwhile tax regime is too be taken in the purview of the GST regime as well. Incidentally, the department has prepared a comprehensive list of taxpayers of the VAT regime and has sorted out those who have not complied with the directives of the new regime. It is now gearing up to send notices for violations of GST through a separate module, i.e. GSTR-3B, which is for settlement of the tax liabilities.

On the whole, the key factor behind the tax defaults is the oblivion of the general public on how to register for GST online or if they get registered under GST then how to file GST returns and pay GST tax.
