Press Trust of India  |  MUMBAI 

/ -- First time in history of GST, Indian businesses have to comply with Annual GST filing under GSTR 9. There is a lot of confusion amongst small business owners regarding compliance of GSTR 9. Entrepreneurs, Businessman and Taxation executives are unaware of the processes to be followed. Professional support system to MSMEs is fragmented and there is no established player who provides accessible guidance to MSMEs.

LegalDocs is leveraging digital mediums like blogs, videos and live seminars & have successfully educated more than 25,000 MSMEs on the process of updating GST. With the introduction of GSTR 9, LegalDocs will be helping MSMEs to understand annual compliance of GST. Consultation includes procedure to file GSTR 9 , what are the forms to be filled, preparation required to file it & all other related issues. Last date of filing GSTR 9 is 31st Dec, 2018 for financial year 2017-18. After 31st Dec there will be penalty charged based on per day.

Team LegalDocs from their vast experience from MSME says, "People feel non-compliance of MSME is a big issue which is pulling them behind. But we believe the real problem is Education. There is no single platform which gives MSME all information & guidance regarding compliance. MSME owner looks after multiple things like business growth, profitability, hiring, funding, etc. so they look for a single person who can handle all compliance work. There is huge gap in getting quality & trustworthy professional at affordable prices."
