    Dear Sir,
    We prepare and deliver food online through Swiggy and Zomato delivery apps to our Customers in Mumbai. Here companies like Swiggy & Zomato collect GST on our behalf and deposit it to our bank account along with the payment. What is a suitable option for a bussiness like this?

    Thank you for this article. Please do share more information on GST to stay fully compliant with the law.
