An appeal under GST law is the application made to the higher court by the aggrieved party for the reversal of the decision of the lower court. In this article, we will discuss the Basics of GST Appeals & Revisions.

  • An appeal arises due to a legal dispute between the two parties.
  • Tax laws impose obligations on the taxpayer which are basically tax-related and procedure related. These taxpayers compliance carried out by the taxpayer are checked by the tax officer through audit examination, tax evasion. In these situations, there are the chances that views of the officer and taxpayer may differ due to which dispute arises which is required to be resolved.

There are four levels of appeals under GST:

  • The first level of appeal is against the order passed by the adjudicating authority to the First Appellate authority under section 79.
