GST Council Meeting: GSTR-3B GST Return Filing can be revised

To ease the burden and provide relief to taxpayers, the GST Council Meeting has decided to implement multiple changes in the GST Regime. In addition, the GST Council addressed to make certain required adjustments to GSTR-3B, the monthly tax payment form.

According to the announcement, the changes would include a non-editable tax payment table and the automatic filling of outbound supplies from sales returns.

Currently, the form GSTR-3B indicates any discrepancy between GSTR-1 and 3B and auto-generates input tax credit (ITC) statements based on inbound and outbound B2B shipments.

The GST Council suggested that some rows in GSTR-3B will have values from GTSR-1 automatically filled in. This action will reduce the amount of user input required in GSTR-3B and streamline the GSTR-3B filing procedure. Form GSTR-3B’s tax payment table will be automatically filled out using data from other tables.
