The Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN) has issued notices to taxpayers stating that it will implement this from 15 October, 2020.
“Large non-compliant taxpayers would be faced with a stoppage of supply from 15 October, 2020, as it is generally seen that on an average only 60% of taxpayers file tax returns by the due date,” said Rajat Mohan, senior partner at AMRG Associates.
In absolute terms this restriction would be applicable to little over 7 lakh large taxpayers of the country.
E-way bill is an electronic document required to be carried for transportation of goods worth more than Rs 50,000 in value.
Experts added that no exemption is given to any large business even if non-filing is due to issues like management deadlock, the sudden demise of the authorized person, a technical glitch in the GSTN, business in the process of bankruptcy, some taxation matter being pending with judiciary, non-payment of tax due to illegal attachment of banks, digital signatures under the custody of a government authority due to search or seizure et al.
