GST Filings - Steps for GST Filings
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. 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. 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 to select a package below:
- Registered Person required to furnish details of sales, purchases and tax paid and collected thereon by filing return with GST
- NIL return even if there is no transaction
- Government entities / PSUs , etc. not dealing in GST supplies or persons exclusively dealing in exempted / Nil rated / non –GST goods or services would neither be required to obtain registration nor required to file returns under the GST law.
- However, State tax authorities may assign Departmental ID to such government departments / PSUs / other persons and will ask the suppliers to quote this ID in the supply invoices for all inter-State purchases being made to them.
What is GST?
