New GST Advisory on Document RFN Number

A notification has been issued by the Finance Department of the Commissionerate of CT & GST, Odisha. The notice informs recipients about the option to generate Document Reference Numbers (RFNs) for use in communications with taxpayers and RFN verification through the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Portal.

The Supreme Court ruled in the case of Pradeep Goyal v. Union of India and Others that it must establish a system of electronic generation of a DIN (Document Identification Number) for all communications sent by state tax officers to taxpayers and other concerned parties in order to increase transparency and accountability in the administration of indirect taxes.

The GST portal-generated notices, orders, and other documents that are delivered to the taxpayer. Almost all of these records contain a DIN (Document Identity Number)/RFN (Reference Number), which is a system-generated unique identity. Due to the fact that the system generated these documents, they are already noticeable in the portal, namely on the taxpayer’s dashboard.

Under the Supreme Court’s directives, a facility for document Reference Number (RFN) generation by state tax authorities and taxpayer verification has also been provided. An RFN can be created by the tax officer with the help of this feature for any communication that needs to be sent to the taxpayer but wasn’t generated by the system. The taxpayer can use this RFN to confirm the validity of the communication both before and after signing in.
