    Is the Return to be filed by Portal even if no warehousing facility extended ie no logistics of goods involved and only

    booking orders forwarded to selles who ship goods themselves and also case 1 seller collect payment directly from buyers

    and case 2 get paid by portals after deducting their commission on booking order value.

    We have multiple portals under one proprietorship firm. Do we need to register firm name or every portal separately in

    ..Also order booked on portal has only seller total price inclusive of tax and breakup is done by seller in his invoice

    during shipment. But form ECII and ECIII ask for beakup of each dealer item and tax rate .sold locally vat and outside

    Delhi cst In the form.

    In return report format what is meant by merchant id allotted by e com company. Do we give our own code.

    What is meant by Registration No /TIN/Pan if unregistered. Seller Dealers selling on portal Pan is ok if they are

    unregistered but how can TIN be unregistered. Anyway we do not allow unregistered dealers to sell.

    I dont know how transaction wise info portals will know unless invoice and shipment details are also uploaded for each

    transaction and this will be very difficult to manage. All this will be very tedious info to collect and report in e

    commerce return report formats. It should have been just sufficient to give registered dealers selling on portals and let

    vat authorities check their returns and invoices. Dont these dealers get booking through Print ads and on telephone. E com

    portals is similarly just another medium.
