A registered small business has to file GST returns when they purchase or sell products, input tax credit against GST paid on purchases, and provide output GST on sales. To further help small business owners with GST filing, Instamojo also offers an online tool to track monthly invoice reports thereby helping in filing taxes at the end of each financial year. Additionally, mojoVersity – Instamojo’s online knowledge platform offers courses under various categories including Finance, Sales and Marketing, Digital and social media skills.
