GST Annual Return Filing – GSTR-9 Filing

GSTR-9 is indeed a crucial annual filing requirement for all taxpayers registered under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) system in India. This comprehensive return encompasses a wealth of information regarding both outward and inward supplies, covering transactions made or received during the relevant financial year.

Introduction to Form GSTR-9

The requirement to file Form GSTR-9 extends to various categories of taxpayers based on their registration status and activities during the financial year. The following entities are obligated to submit this annual return:

Exclusions from Form GSTR-9 Filing

Composition Taxpayers: Taxpayers operating under the composition scheme have a distinct annual return form, i.e., Form GSTR-9A, designed to cater to their specific requirements. As such, they are not required to file Form GSTR-9.

Types of GST Annual Returns

Entities with a turnover exceeding 2 crores are mandated to file the GST annual return using Form GSTR-9. This return compiles comprehensive financial information and is a crucial compliance requirement for taxpayers falling within this turnover bracket. It helps in providing a consolidated overview of their annual GST activities and transactions.


Registered taxpayers who opted for the GST Composition scheme must submit GSTR-9A. This tailored return addresses the specific needs of composition scheme participants.


Form GSTR-9C reconciles the taxpayer's annual returns in GSTR-9 with the figures found in their audited financial statements for the given financial year. This reconciliation statement is essential for entities requiring an annual account audit. GST Audit Requirement GSTR-9C applies to taxpayers with an annual aggregate turnover exceeding two crores, necessitating an annual audit of their accounts. The preparation and certification of GSTR-9C are entrusted to Chartered Accountants or Cost Accountants.

Filing GSTR-9A: Composition Scheme Participants

Applicability of GSTR-9A

GST-registered taxpayers who have chosen to operate under the composition scheme as per the GST Act are obligated to file GSTR-9A. This return encompasses all the taxpayer previously submitted information in their quarterly returns throughout the specific fiscal year.
Eligibility Criteria Every taxpayer registered under the composition levy scheme in GST must fulfill the GSTR-9A filing requirement. However, the subsequent individuals are exempt from filing GSTR-9A:

Filing GSTR-9C: Reconciliation Statement

Form GSTR-9C serves the purpose of filing a reconciliation statement by taxpayers for a specific financial year. This form involves reconciling the Annual Returns submitted in GSTR-9 with the figures presented in the taxpayer's Audited Financial Statements. The submission of this form must be certified by a Chartered Accountant. The GSTR-9C form aligns with the filing of both the Annual Returns in GSTR-9 and the Audited Financial Statements. Taxpayers can fulfill this requirement through the GST portal or a designated Facilitation Centre. The reconciliation statement is a critical component of GST compliance, ensuring that the data presented in the Annual Returns is consistent with the audited financial records of the taxpayer.

Eligibility Criteria

GSTR-9C applies to taxpayers who are mandated to undergo an annual GST audit of their accounts. The form must be meticulously prepared and certified by a qualified Chartered or Cost Accountant.

Due date for filing Form GSTR-9

The due date for filing Form GSTR-9 for a particular financial year is 31st December of the subsequent financial year or as extended by the Government through notification from time to time.

Penalties for Late Filing of GSTR-9 Form

Filing the GSTR-9 form within the given time frame is essential to avoid significant penalties. If the deadline is missed, a late fee will apply, amounting to 200 INR per day. This late fee is divided into 100 INR for CGST and 100 INR for SGST, with no late fee applicable for IGST. Importantly, the penalty amount will not exceed the taxpayer's quarterly turnover.
To prevent these penalties and ensure smooth compliance with tax regulations, it's crucial to meet the filing deadline for GSTR-9. Timely filing is essential to avoid unnecessary financial penalties and maintain good standing with the GST authorities.

Comprehensive Structure of GSTR-9

GSTR-9 Format Explained The GSTR-9 format is divided into six parts, each capturing vital details of supplies made or received from July '17 to March '18. The key aspect to remember is that the information required in all six parts is consolidated.

Part-1: Basic Registration Details

Here, you'll provide basic registration information. This includes the fiscal year, GSTIN, legal name, and trade name. These details will be automatically filled out when GSTR-9 is available on the GST portal.

Part 2: Details of Outward Supplies

In this part, you'll consolidate details of outward supplies declared in your returns for the financial year. It's further split into two sections:

Part 3: Input Tax Credit (ITC)

This part has three sections:

Part-4: Tax Paid

In the GSTR-9 form, you need to capture the tax paid as declared in the previous year's returns. This involves providing a detailed breakup of tax payable, tax paid in cash, and tax paid through Input Tax Credit (ITC). It's crucial to accurately report these figures to ensure compliance with GST regulations and maintain accurate financial records.

Part-5: Transactions of Previous Financial Year

This part of the GSTR-9 form covers transactions from the previous financial year but are declared in the returns of April to September of the current financial year. It's important to ensure that these transactions are accurately reported and aligned with the relevant timeframes to maintain compliance with GST regulations.

Part-6: Miscellaneous Details

In this part of the GSTR-9 form, you'll provide details about demands, refunds, supplies from composition dealers, an HSN-wise summary of supplies, and late fee information. Understanding and correctly filling these parts is crucial for accurate GSTR-9 filing. If this seems overwhelming or if you have any questions, don't worry!

Prerequisite Actions for GSTR-9 Filing

Before proceeding with the submission of GSTR-9, taxpayers must ensure the completion of other GST-related filings, such as GSTR-1, GSTR-3B, or GSTR-4, depending on the taxpayer's classification. It is crucial to address any outstanding dues related to these filings, as failure to do so can hinder the ability of the GSTR registration holder to file their annual GST return.
