GST has grabbed all eyeballs. For all reasons fair, it has taken the centre stage of every discussion from social media to news forums.
Well, GST comes with a lot of advantages, one of them being doing away with complicated record maintaining. While the indirect tax regime earlier was bothering you with hassled record maintenance, GST comes as a relief which gives a freedom from maintaining too many records. As GST follows “One Nation, One Tax,” it could easily be deduced also as “One Tax, One Type of Record.”
There’s no need to maintain plethora of records for different types of records.
Here’s a list of records that all assessees you need to maintain:
- Purchase Register
