WHAT DO I NEED TO FILE A GST RETURN?
If you run a business in India which is required to pay GST (Goods and Services Tax), then you are legally obliged to make regular returns showing how much tax your business is liable for, and also to then make that payment. Unlike the various different taxes which GST replaces, you can only submit your GST returns electronically – there is no option of completing a paper form. In order to register for GST and ﬁle your returns electronically you will need:
In order to access the GST system and submit electronic returns, you will need to register for a user ID and password. This will not change, so write it down or keep it somewhere safe as you’ll need it to log in each time you file a GST return.
The Permanent Account Number (PAN) is used to track the movement of tax through the system and link it to both individuals and companies. The PAN required is one for the company, not of an individual linked to the company. If your organisation does not have a PAN already, you’ll need to apply for one before you can register for the GST online portal.
You will need the GST number allotted to your organisation by the government.
With most software designed to help businesses with everyday accounting and GST returns, you will need to input the PAN and GST number once only, and the software will hold the information to populate the appropriate ﬁelds on the online form automatically. Depending on the size of your business and the type of goods or services you are offering, you might have to submit your GST returns either monthly or quarterly. The Indian government is looking at ways of simplifying the process and moving to a one page form for every business, submitted monthly.
