The Ministry of Finance has taken initiative to focus on certain issues such as development of a New Return Filing process, with improving the user interface, and Business Intelligence and Analytics. The following are the various issues taken up by Ministry of Finance:-
1.) GSTN has started sharing data with tax authorities on the following grounds:
a.) Mis-match between figures reported in GSTR-1 & GSTR-3B.
b.) Mis-match between figures reported GSTR-3B & that computed by the system in GSTR-2A.
c.) Taxpayers who have generated e-way bill but not filed tax returns
2. GSTN has started work on BI & Analytics. Different scenarios of BI have been identified on which work is going on such as Persona based Analysis, Predictive Analysis, Fraud/Anomaly Detection, Statistical Scoring, 360 degree view taxpayers, Circular Trading & Network Analysis etc.
3. Other important initiatives/improvements made for better User experience include:
a.) Suggested utilisation of ITC informed to the taxpayer for discharging tax liability, and Contextual help for GST transactions like Registration, Returns, Payment, etc.
b.) Option to generate pre-populated Challan by the system to avoid depositing Cash in wrong Head by the taxpayers; and Introduction of one click Nil return filing.
4. GSTN will focus on the development of a New Return Filing, further improving the user interface, and Business Intelligence and Analytics. While the New Return is yet to be notified, GSTN has started development of the components in which major changes are not expected.
5. Improvement in User Interface on the basis of feedback is a continuous process. Few important initiatives/improvements made for better User experience include among others a Questionnaire for filing GSTR-3B to avoid errors by taxpayers.
