What is a Show Cause Notice?

Show Cause Notice (SCN) is a warning or notification  issued by a Courts, Competent Authorities or an Organization  for an identified default demanding a tax payer  to explain or to "show cause" in writing as to why the disciplinary/penal action should not be taken against the taxpayer for the identified  defaults.

Show cause notice is the first  obligatory communication served on the dealer proposing any demand under GST Act 2017, other than payment of interest under section 50 and non filing of returns under section 62 of the GST Act. The issue on SCNs need not necessarily conclude in demand for taxes.
