GST Return Filing: How To File & Types

What Is a GST Return?

A GST return is a legal document submitted to the tax authorities by businesses and individuals to report their sales, expenses, purchases, & the amount of GST they have collected and paid. In simple terms, GST is a consumption tax imposed on the supply of goods and services.


Typically, GST returns include below information:


  • Output and Input Tax:  Summary of the GST collected (output tax) and the GST paid on purchases (input tax) during the reporting period.


  • Sales: Details of all sales or supplies made by the business during a specific tax period.


  • Purchases: Information on purchases or expenses eligible for input tax credits.

Why GST Return Filed & Who Is Eligible For its Filing?

The primary purpose of filing GST returns is to report the amount of GST collected (output tax) on sales and the amount of GST paid (input tax) on purchases. This reporting allows tax authorities to determine the financial liability of a business or individual to the government.


GST return needs to be filed in the below cases.


  • Individuals or businesses with an annual turnover exceeding ₹ 20 lakh (for services supply) and ₹ 40 lakh (for the supply of goods).


  • The threshold limit for GST registration in states such as Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura, and Sikkim is ₹ 20 lakhs (for the supply of goods) and ₹ 10 lakhs (for the supply of services).


However, it is important to note that GST regulations may vary by region or state over time. That’s why it is important to stay updated with the latest information according to your location.

Penalty For Late GST Return Filing

If a taxpayer fails to submit their GST returns by the prescribed deadline, they are liable to pay a late fee.


This fee for both the Central Goods and Services Tax (CGST) and State Goods and Services Tax (SGST) is set at ₹ 25 for each day of delay, amounting to a total of ₹ 50 per day. However, this amount can reach a maximum of up to ₹ 5000 per Act.

For persons having NIL turnover, the penalty is Rs. 20 per day both for GSTR-3B & GSTR-1. Thus Rs.40 per day penalty is there for Nil turnover return filers if they do not file the return in time.

Further, late filing of IGST returns does not attract late fees under the GST law. However, the taxpayer who files their returns after the due date may also be liable to pay interest at the rate of 18% per annum.
