GST Set to Introduce ‘Faceless’ Assessment System for Taxpayers

In the process of checking tax returns for Goods and Services Tax (GST), there are plans to make the assessment system “faceless,” meaning the taxpayer and the officer won’t need to meet in person.

This approach has already been adopted by the Income Tax and Customs Departments.

However, the implementation of this “faceless” system for GST assessments may take some more time.

In this type of assessment, the taxpayer and the tax officer don’t meet directly, and there’s no need for physical document submission.

Jagmal Singh, the vice president of GST Network, mentioned that introducing this system for GST assessments is a gradual process.

Currently, GST assessments are associated with specific jurisdictional officers or entities. Changing this setup will take time and will require policy adjustments for effectiveness.

It’s worth noting that GST, which includes 17 local charges like excise duty, service tax, value-added tax (VAT), and cess, was implemented on July 1, 2017.
