GST Return Filing

What is GST return filing?

The implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) in India has established a comprehensive tax system that encompasses registration, returns, and compliance, aligning these aspects effectively. GST requires registered businesses to file returns periodically, based on their business activity. This includes reporting details of sales, purchases, taxes collected, and taxes paid.
For individual taxpayers, there are four main types of GST return forms: returns for supplies, returns for purchases, monthly returns, and annual returns. Filing GST returns is mandatory for all entities with valid GST registration, regardless of their business activity, sales volume, or profitability during the reporting period. Even dormant businesses holding valid GST registration must fulfill their GST return filing obligations. These returns serve as documents containing income and expense details required to be submitted to tax authorities for compliance and assessment.

GST Return Filing Process

How to file the GST returns?

IndiaFilings is a prominent business service platform in India, providing comprehensive GST services to assist numerous business owners with GST registration and return filing, ensuring compliance with the Goods and Services Tax regulations.

Why IndiaFilings for Filing GST returns?

The time required for filing GST returns through IndiaFilings typically ranges from 1 to 3 working days, contingent on factors such as the availability of the government portal and the timely submission of documents by the client. This timeframe reflects the efficiency of the process, but it can be influenced by external factors and client responsiveness.

Return Filing under the Composition Scheme

All individuals and businesses registered under the Composition Scheme must adhere to specific GST return filing requirements. They are required to pay taxes using CMP-08 on a quarterly basis and submit GSTR-4 annually. The due dates for the GST return for Composition Scheme are on the 18th of the month following the end of each quarter. Therefore, the return filing deadlines are April 18th, July 18th, October 18th, and January 18th.

If a registered person opts to pay tax under the composition scheme from the beginning of a financial year, they are required to file monthly GST returns on the 10th, 15th, and 20th of each month. This monthly return filing continues until the due date for furnishing the return for September of the succeeding financial year or until the furnishing of the annual return of the preceding financial year, whichever comes earlier. Therefore, even if a taxable person under GST chooses the composition scheme starting in April, they must continue filing monthly GST returns until September, as long as it precedes the annual return deadline for the previous financial year. This provision ensures that proper reporting and compliance are maintained throughout the transition to the composition scheme.
