Govt not considering faceless assessment of GST: Finance Ministry

By TOG News Service
Mar 17, 2021 , New Delhi

TOG NEWS SERVICE, NEW DELHI, MAR 17, 2021: THE Finance Ministry on Tuesday said there is no proposal for faceless assessments of Goods and Services Tax (GST) at present since the system is already enabled with e-filing and returns.

He explained that the faceless assessment scheme of income tax cases imparts greater efficiency, transparency and accountability for taxpayers by eliminating the interface between the Assessing Officer (AO) and the assessee.

"No such proposal for scrutiny of GST assessment in a faceless mode is under consideration of the government presently as the GST laws and rules made thereunder already provide for electronic filing and assessment of returns on the common portal," Minister of State for Finance Mr Anurag Thakur told the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday.

The minister stated, "Till March 10, 2021, total of 82,072 assessment cases have been completed in faceless manner ."

Giving more details, Mr Thakur said that an independent study to ascertain assessees' experiences in faceless manner is being conducted by the National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER).

The Department of Economic Affairs (DEA), Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) have a tripartite arrangement with NCAER for conducting the assessment.
