An Overview of
What is GST return filing?
Businesses that are registered under GST have to file the GST returns monthly, quarterly, and annually based on the business. Here it is necessary to provide the details of the sales or purchases of the goods and services along with the tax that is collected and paid. Implementation of a comprehensive Income Tax System like GST in India has ensured that taxpayer services such as registration, returns, and compliance are in range and perfectly aligned.
An individual taxpayer filing the GST returns has to file 4 forms for filing the GST returns such as the returns for the supplies, returns for the purchases made, monthly returns, and the annual returns.
GST return filing in India is mandatory for all the entities that have a valid GST registration irrespective of the business activity or the sales or the profitability during the period of filing the returns. Hence, even a dormant business that has a valid GST registration must file the GST returns.
GST return is a document that contains the details of all the income or the expenses that a taxpayer is required to file with the tax administrative authorities.
Who should file the GST returns?
GST Return filing in India is to be done by the following:
A person having a valid GSTIN has to compulsorily file the GST returns.
Also, a person whose annual turnover is crossing Rs. 20 lakh has to obtain a GST registration and file the GST returns mandatorily.
In the cases of Special states, the limit for the annual turnover is Rs.10 lakh.
Return Filing under the Composition Scheme
All persons registered under the Composition Scheme are required to pay taxes using CMP-08 every quarter and GSTR 4 to be filled annually through the GST Common Portal or a GST Facilitation Centre. GST return for those enrolled under Composition Scheme is due on the 18th of the month, succeeding a quarter. Hence, the GST return for the composition scheme would be due on April 18th, July 18th, October 18th, and January 18th. The GST return filed by a Composition Scheme supplier must include details of:
Invoice wise inter-State and intra-State inward supplies received from registered and unregistered persons
Consolidated details of outward supplies made
If a registered person opted to pay tax under composition scheme from the beginning of a financial year, then the taxpayer must file monthly GST returns on the 10th, 15th, and 20th of each month and monthly returns till the due date of furnishing the return for September of the succeeding financial year or furnishing of annual return of the preceding financial year, whichever is earlier. Hence, even if a taxable person under GST opted for a composition scheme from April onwards, the taxpayer must continue filing monthly GST returns until September.
