A return is a document containing details of income which a taxpayer is required to file with the tax administrative authorities. This is used by tax authorities to calculate tax liability.
Under GST, a registered dealer has to file GST returns that include:
- Output GST (On sales)
- Input tax credit (GST paid on purchases)
To file GST returns, GST compliant sales and purchase invoices are required. You can generate GST compliant invoices .
2. Who should file GST Returns?
In the GST regime, any regular business has to file two monthly returns and one annual return. This amounts to 26 returns in a year.
The beauty of the system is that one has to manually enter details of one monthly return – GSTR-1. The other return GSTR 3B will get auto-populated by deriving information from GSTR- 1 filed by you and your vendors.
There are separate returns required to be filed by special cases such as composition dealers.
