  • You can now save the Form on confirming details filled in the Table. You can fill balance details later.
  • Preview Form or download it for cross verifying saved details in any table(s) anytime.
  • No more Submit requirement to freeze details and know the liability.
  • Changes in any table can be made before making payment towards liabilities.
  • Once you proceed to payment, you can also see details of existing balances in cash and credit ledgers (Table 6.1 – Payments Table).
  • System suggested Tax Credit (ITC) is already filled for discharging liability.
