What is a GST appeal? Any person who thinks an order or decision under GST, passed by the adjudicating authority is not as per the law then that person can file an appeal to the Appellate authority.
In GST, Appeal proceedings are governed under Section 107 by CGST Act, 2017. As per the act, the person who appeals against the order should file the appeal within 3months from the date of order passed. AS per Rule no-108 of CGST Rules 2017, an appeal to the Appellate Authority under section 107(1) shall be filed in the FORM GST APL -01, along with relevant documents in digital form or by hard copy, and a provisional acknowledgment should be issued to the appellant immediately.
The person can also file the appeal online in the GST portal through his/her account.
