Online food delivery app Zomato has received a goods and services tax (GST) penalty notice from Gujarat's Deputy Commissioner of State Tax --an order for FY2018-19 pursuant to the audit of GST returns and accounts. According to a regulatory filing to the stock exchanges,  the demand order has been received in respect of excess availment of input tax credit and short payment of GST.

‘’The company has received an order for FY 2018-19 pursuant to the audit of GST returns and accounts by the Deputy Commissioner of State Tax, Gujarat raising demand of GST of 4,11,68,604/-, along with applicable interest and penalty totaling to 8,57,77,696,'' said Zomato in its exchange filing.

The company in its response to the show cause notice had clarified on all the issues along with relevant documents, circulars etc. which appears to not have been fully considered by the authorities while passing the order, according to Zomato.
