How many returns does a businessman has to file in your country ?

Couple of years ago, in India by law it was mandated that every businessman has to file 2 GST returns, namely GSTR 1 and GSTR2, which means minimum of 24 returns in a year, and this is besides the income tax return that he/she/they have to file each year. https://www.gsthelplineindia.com/blog/2017/1...
