GST Return Filing
Once a business entity gets registered under GST, it is mandatory to file periodical GST returns as per the schedule mentioned below. The return filing is mandatory even if there is no business activity or sales during the period. There are various returns to be filed under GST. GSTR-3B (for intimation and payment of Tax on monthly basis), GSTR-1 (details of outward supplies) on the 10th of each month, GSTR-2 (details of inward supplies) on the 15th of each month (which is currently suspended) and GSTR-3 (monthly return) on the 25th of month (which is currently suspended). Dealers registered under Composition scheme are required to file GSTR-4 every quarter, on 18th of the month next to the quarter.
