Consequence of Not filing of GST Return


Every GST constraint in India needs to file his/her GST returns depending upon their annual turnover.

In a recent announcement on 6th October 2017, from the Hon'ble finance minister Mr. Arun Jaitley through his official Twitter account, Government of India has provided a huge relief to the taxpayers by relaxing the norms of monthly returns filing to quarterly returns filing.


What returns needs to be filed and when?

GSTR 1The Purpose of this return serves to submit details of outward supplies like sales, stock transfer, export or any other movement of goods. Due date of this return is 10th of every Quarter if your turnover does not exceed ₹1.5 Crore

GSTR 2 The Purpose of this return serves to submit details of Inward supplies like the purchase of goods, import of goods or any other movement of goods. Due date of this return is 15th of every Quarter if your turnover does not exceed ₹1.5 Crore

GSTR 3BThe Purpose of this return serves to submit tax to the government with details like the tax on the sale of goods and services, Input credit on the purchase and Net Tax Payable. The Due date of this return is 20th of the next month. It is proposed that this return will be discontinued from January 2018

Now the taxpayers having an annual turnover less than ₹1.5 crore requires filing quarterly returns instead of monthly.

But this condition will apply to GSTR 1 and GSTR 2 only and that too from the month of October onwards so for the months of July, August and September you have to file returns monthly.

Taxpayer has to continue to file GSTR 3B on or before 20th of the next month which they are already filing from the month of July 2017

On failing to file the GST returns on time, not only attracts a penalty but also affects the GST compliance rating of the taxpayer.

A Tax Payer has to pay penalty of ₹200 per day and Maximum of ₹5000 on the consequence of non-filing of GST Returns on time

However, the government has decided to set off the penalty (at first taxpayer has to pay it later they can take credit from their ledger) for delayed filing of initial returns for the month of August and September, giving a major relief for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), which are the most affected sector of the economy.




Not just that, those who have paid the late fee will be credited it back to their ledger and you can take an input of that while paying GST to the government twitted by finance minister Arun Jaitley.
