How To Use ‘Communication Between Taxpayers’ Feature?

The GSTN has launched the ‘Communication between taxpayers’ feature on the GST portal. Through this platform, taxpayers can communicate with suppliers/recipients/purchasers as required directly through the portal dashboard.

Features Of ‘Communication Between Taxpayers’ Facility

  • The new functionality provides a simple communication platform for taxpayers. For example, a recipient/purchaser can ask his/her supplier/s to upload any particular invoice/s that has not been uploaded but is required by the recipient to avail Input Tax Credit (ITC) directly, through the GST portal.
  • Businesses can communicate about deficiencies in invoices with the supplier directly (if required). They can also ask the supplier/s to amend uploaded invoices or remove wrongly uploaded invoice/s. Payment related issues can also be communicated through this feature.
  • Suppliers can reply to the recipient/purchaser through the same facility.
  • Suppliers can send notifications to their recipient/purchaser about documents uploaded in the outward supply statement filed in Form GSTR-1.
  • When a taxpayer sends a communication to his/her counterpart (through this feature), the GSTN will also send an intimation to the counterpart through an email and SMS.
