Goods And Services Tax (GST) was introduced back in 2017 and has now emerged as one of the biggest tax reforms ever. This tag of the biggest tax reform ever has been rightfully earned by GST as this has not only reduced the overall cost of goods and services but also has saved businesses a lot of complications with the whole process of filing returns for getting the registration done in the first place. 

This article is entirely dedicated to the GST portal that the government introduced to uncomplicate the process with great help from technology.
