Tax returns and their due date for filing under the GST Law

In this article, we will discuss the various returns that are required to be furnished under the new GST law. What information is required to be filed, who has the onus to file these returns and what are the timelines for submission of these returns?

A return is a document that a taxpayer is required to file as per the law with the tax administrative authorities.
