GST Payment Online – How to Pay GST Online?

Before the advent of Goods and Service Tax, paying taxes was a tedious task. You were liable to pay a variety of taxes like service tax, value-added tax, and several other indirect taxes charged by the Central and the State government. And most of the time, you didn’t knew what is the exact payment procedure. But since the Government has rolled out GST and has been implemented effectively, we (the consumers) have gained greater clarity in tax payment under the indirect taxation regime. Major indirect taxes which were in force in India have been integrated under the one single taxation system of GST (Goods and Service Tax). With this, the taxation levy scheme of both the federal government and state government has been harmonised.

What are the GST payments?

To pay taxes under this new taxation regime, ‘GST payments’ were introduced. Under this, every registered business/taxpayer has to submit the GST returns on a regular basis. The entire process of GST payment has been made online to maintain accessibility and transparency.
