a) In GST ANX-2, the details of all inward supplies need to be disclosed.
3. GST RET-01
a)GST RET-01, it is a final return form through which the tax liability has to be discharged.
1) From July to September,
a) All assesses would be able to upload their outward supply invoices in the GST ANX-01 offline tool on a trial basis in order to get a familiarisation.
b) The summary of inward supplies would be also available for view in the offline tool.
