GSTN Enables Option To Authenticate Aadhaar Card Or Upload E-KYC Docs On Portal: Reviewed By Parshav Jain

Posted under Taxation, Legal, Top Stories, by Malika Mahajan / 53 minutes ago

GSTN has enabled the option to authenticate the Aadhaar Card or upload e-KYC documents on the GST Portal of Partner/ Promoter and Primary Authorised Signatory. Aadhaar authentication is a process by which the Aadhaar number along with other biometric details of the Aadhaar holder are submitted to CIDR for verifying its correctness. The CIDR verifies the correctness of data on the basis of information available with it. The main purpose behind Aadhaar authentication is to create an online platform wherein the identity of Aadhaar holders can be validated anytime, anywhere. This will keep a check on malpractices happening under GST. Taxpayers can use the option to send the Aadhaar authentication link received on their registered mobile number. Alternatively, taxpayers can use a new facility to upload their identity proof documents to complete eKYC. These documents will be subject to scrutiny by tax officials, and on approval, the authentication process will be complete. Once you click the Send Aadhaar Authentication Link, an authentication link is shared on GST registered mobile number and e-mail IDs of Promoters/ Partners and Authorized Signatories. This link will be valid for 15 days only, after which the link gets expired and can not be used further for Aadhaar authentication Purposes. If the link gets expired, the taxpayer can send Aadhaar Authentication link again.

ITAT Deletes Addition On Account Of Miscellaneous Expenditure: Reviewed By Parshav Jain

Posted under Taxation, Legal, Top Stories, by Malika Mahajan / 1 hour ago

ITAT Hyderabad Bench deleted the addition on account of miscellaneous expenditure. The Revenue’s sole substantive ground pleaded in instant appeal seeks to reverse CIT (A)’s action deleting disallowance or addition of 1,92,38,312 on account of the expenditure incurred. The department vehemently contended during the course of hearing that CIT(A) has erred in law and on facts in deleting impugned miscellaneous expenditure disallowance of 1,92,38,312 even though the assessee had failed to prove the same by way of filing cogent supportive evidence before the Assessing Officer. However, the ITAT found no merit in Revenue’s instant grievance. The coram noted that AO had disallowed the assessee’s entire expenses in the drug manufacturing business, thereby enhancing its profit to the maximum level. The assessee has already explained the reason for the non-production of audited books of account because there was a tenancy dispute culminating in locked up premises in a corresponding span of time. “So far as Revenue’s case that CIT (A) deleted impugned disallowance without verification, it has come on record that he had duly sought for a remand report from Assessing Officer’s side. We, therefore, find no reason to revive the impugned disallowance going by Revenue’s pleadings. Its sole grievance failed accordingly,” ITAT said.
