The tax authorities can issue an assessment order to a registered person who has failed to furnish the return, even after the service of a notice under section 46.This assessment order may result in additional tax liabilities, interest, and penalties, based on the best judgment of the authorities.The assessment process under the GST Act involves the issuance of assessment orders in specific forms. The forms for Issuance of Assessment Order (Section 62) are as under:
