Filing GST return
What are the different annual returns under the GST law?
There are four different forms of annual returns under the GST law.
GSTR-9 is for regular taxpayers who are under GSTR-1 and GSTR-3B.GSTR-9A is for composite dealers. GSTR-9B is for e-commerce dealers who file under the GSTR-8 category. GSTR-9C is for all taxpayers who have a turnover of above two crores in the financial and should audit their financial reports.
What happens if the vendor does not upload my invoice under their GSTR-1?
The vendor will not be able to claim the input tax credit. The information entered by you in GSTR-1 will be the basis to generate the vendor’s GSTR-2. The business activities stated in GSTR-2B will only be considered to raise input tax credit.
What happens when the GST return is not submitted before the due date?
There will be a penalty of Rs 50 till the day the default continues. It is calculated at Rs. 25 from SGST and Rs. 25 from CGST. If there are no sales, nil returns have to be filed. The penalty is Rs 10 for CGST and Rs 10 for SGST per day until the day it's paid.
How is payment for GST done?
The challan for the payment has to be generated from the site. GST can be paid through two kinds of ledgers: electronic cash ledger and electronic credit ledger. The accumulated input amounts are seen in the electronic credit ledger and the cash deposits are seen in the electronic cash ledger.
