o The one nation, one tax system aims to improve India’s competitiveness in

an anti-inflationary approach. This also leads to a reduction in the costs of
doing business. Another benefit of GST is that no taxpayer is required to
pay tax on advances received for supply of goods.
o It reduces multiplicity of taxes and compliance costs.
o The Composition Scheme brings greater simplicity and reduces the cost of
compliance for small businesses.
o A key feature of GST is the existence of a robust IT system for online
registration, payment and filing of taxes for easier compliance
