About GST Return

GST return filing is a fundamental aspect of GST compliance for businesses operating in India. It serves as a mechanism for taxpayers to report their income, claim input tax credit, and fulfill their tax obligations to the government. Timely and accurate filing of GST returns not only ensures compliance with tax laws but also facilitates seamless business operations by maintaining transparency in transactions and financial records.The Goods and Services Tax (GST) stands as a landmark reform in India's taxation system, aimed at simplifying the indirect tax structure and fostering economic growth. Enacted in July 2017, GST replaced a multitude of central and state taxes, bringing uniformity and efficiency to the tax regime. GST is a destination-based tax levied on the supply of goods and services, encompassing various stages of the supply chain. It operates on the principle of input tax credit, where taxes paid on input goods and services can be offset against taxes on output supplies.

UNDERSTANDING THE IMPORTANCE OF GST RETURN FILING GST return filing is a fundamental aspect of GST compliance for businesses operating in India. It serves as a mechanism for taxpayers to report their income, claim input tax credit, and fulfill their tax obligations to the government.

Return filing is mandatory under GST. Even if there is no transaction, you must file a Nil return.

Interest is 18% per annum. It has to be calculated by the tax payer on the amount of outstanding tax to be paid. Time period will be from the next day of filing to the date of payment.

As per GST Act Late fee is Rs. 100 per day per Act. So it is 100 under CGST & 100 under SGST. Total will be Rs. 200/day. Maximum is Rs. 5,000. There is no late fee on IGST.

Late fees for GSTR-3B of July, Aug and Sept waived. Any late fees paid for these months will be credited back to Electronic Cash Ledger under ‘Tax’ and can be utilized to make GST payments.

Frequently Asked Questions

A return is a statement of financial activity by a taxable person for a prescribed period. This allows a taxable person to self-assess the tax they owe for that period.

Every registered taxable person is required to file returns under the GST law. If you have not performed any business activities during the period covered by a return, you need to file a Nil return.

There are some entities that will need to register for GST but aren’t required to file returns regularly, such as UN bodies (and foreign consulates) must register for a unique GST ID, but they are required to file returns only for months during which they make purchases.

Some entities do not need to register or file returns. Government entities and Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs), entities dealing with non-GST supplies, and those who deal with exempted/Nil rated/non GST goods and/or services will neither be required to register under the GST nor file returns.

Yes, you are allowed to make corrections. As a registered taxpayer, you are legally bound to file the details of every modification made to the return data to the GSTN either through an amendment form (if the edit was made before 17th of the following) or using the amendment sections under the next month’s tax return (if the edit was made after 17th of the following month). This is because modifications to invoices and other documents can result in a mismatch between your data and the data held by your customer or vendor and this will lead to litigation. Hence, by declaring the details of all edits made by you, you stay true to the law.

If e-sign does not work, you can always file a GST return using other methods which involve an OTP from your registered phone number, your PAN information and a DSC.

Yes, an OTP is required at every stage of the filing process: whether it’s for pushing data into GSTN, reconciling uncategorised transactions from GSTN, or for filing GST returns. Every OTP sent to the registered phone number is valid only for 10mins. That said, if you are filing your GST returns through a GST filing software, the life of your OTP gets extended.

Upon entering the OTP for the very first time inside the filing software, the network will authenticate the OTP and provide a token to the application which will allow you to carry out your filing operation uninterrupted for 6-12hrs (until the token expires).

Technically, you need the PAN and DSC of the registered person along with an OTP that will be sent by the GSTN to the registered person’s phone while filing GST returns. Hence it is better if the business owner is made aware before you initiate the filing process.

Before we dive into GST returns, let us first try to understand who a Non-Resident taxpayer is. A Non-Resident taxpayer is a taxable person who occasionally undertakes transactions involving supply of goods and/or services but who has no fixed place of business in India.

Non-Resident taxpayers are required to file the GSTR-5 for their registered period (which can range from days to weeks to months). This return has to be filed within a period of 7 days after the expiry date of the registration. If the registered period is more than a month, then this return has to be filed every month for the remainder of the registered period.
