– Reporting the information to the tax authorities;
– Compliance with tax laws;
– Matching of information provided by different tax payers and identify the tax evaders;
– For processing of data at the macro level.
– Every person registered under GST will have to file returns in some form or other. A registered person will have to file returns either monthly (normal supplier) or quarterly basis (Supplier opting for composition scheme).
– No scanned copy of invoices is to be uploaded. Only certain prescribed fields of information from invoices need to be uploaded.
– No. Composition tax payers do not need to file any statement of outward or inward supplies. They have to file a quarterly return in Form GSTR-4 by the 18th of the month after the end of the quarter. Since they are not eligible for any input tax credit, there is no relevance of GSTR-2 for them and since the credit of tax paid under Composition Levy is not eligible, there is no relevance of GSTR-1 for them.
– Instead of revising the return already submitted, the system will allow changing the details of those transactions (invoices or debit/credit notes) that are required to be amended. They can be amended in any of the future GSTR- 1 or 2 in the tables specifically provided for the purposes of amending previously declared detail.
– GST returns shall be E-filed on the GST common portal.
– Filing of Returns beyond due date: Rs 100 per day subject to maximum of Rs 5,000;
– Filing of Annual Return beyond due date: Rs. 100 for every day during which such failure continues subject to a maximum of an amount calculated at 0.25% of his turnover in a state.
