Background: In the recent past, several taxpayer’s GST portals were flooded with notices and orders from the GST Department due to the expiry of the period of limitation for the issuance of notices and orders under Section 73 of the CGST Act 2017.
One of the modes of serving any decision, order, summons, notice, or other communications under the GST is by making it available on the GST portal [Section 169 of CGST Act 2017].
At times, it was difficult for taxpayers to locate the notices and orders as they were available under ‘User services’ in two separate windows, namely View Notices and Orders and View Additional Notices and Orders. Some taxpayers missed checking the notices made available on the GST portal, which led to non-response to the notices and the issuance of orders by the Department officer.
To address this challenge and streamline the GST portal, the notices tabs are being revamped by integrating ‘View Notices and Orders’ and ‘View Additional Notices and Orders’ into a single window. The detailed discussion on the same is enumerated below.
View Notices and Orders:
Dashboard–> Services–> User Services–> Notices and Orders
The following Notices/Orders issued by tax authorities are available under “Notices and Orders”:
View Additional Notices and Orders:
Dashboard–> Services–> User Services–> Additional Notices and Orders
The following Notices/Orders issued by tax authorities are available under “Additional Notices and Orders”:
Notices/ Orders pertaining to ‘Refund’ Module:
Dashboard–> Services–>User Services–> My Applications–>‘REFUNDS’ [Application type]
