  1. Due date for filing GSTR-3B for December 2017 is mentioned as “By 20th January 2018”. My query is that whether the filing has to be done on 20th January 2018 only or it could be filed earlier than 20th January 2018.

    1. Due date is 20th of every month for GSTR-3B. but that doesn’t mean you have to file the returns on the due date only. you can file returns before due date also. but if the return is filed after due date then late fees provisions apply.

    2. My question is GSTR 3B for March 2018 ( up to 1.5 crores ) due date is 20th April 2018. But after log in inserting ID & Password click on Return Dasboard, displaying only GSTR-1 Return.I wanted to know GSTR 3B to be filed or not.

      1. Yes , GSTR -3b has to be filed by 20th april 2018 for the month of march. It is available on the portal for filing.

    1. Purchase invoices are not to be shown by regular dealers in their G.S.T. returns. However a composition dealer need to show its purchase invoices in GSTR-4.

    1. As no revise return facility is available under GST, you have to make correction while filing GSTR-1 for the concerned tax period.

    1. This is your purchase return and you need to raise the debit note for it in books only. Further, if input tax credit is taken in GSTR-3B then you have to reverse the credit in GSTR-3B in eligibility ITC tab.

    1. 20th November 2018 is the last due date for filing GSTR 3B return for the month of October and If you file your GSTR 3B return after the due date then you pay Rs. 50/day i.e. Rs. 25 each for central and state.

    1. You can apply for revocation for cancellation of registration by filling GST REG 21. If your cancellation order has been passed before 31/03/2019, then the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) is providing a “one-time opportunity” to apply for revocation of cancellation of GST registration by July 22, 2019, for those entities for whom cancellation order has been passed up to March 31, 2019 provided where the registration has been cancelled with effect from the date of the order, all returns due till the date of such cancellation are required to be furnished before the revocation application is filed. In cases where the registration has been cancelled with retrospective effect, the CBIC has allowed filing of revocation application, subject to the condition that all returns relating to the period from the effective date of cancellation till the date of revocation order will be filed within a period of 30 days from the date of the revocation order.

  21. The due date for submission of GSTR3B for the month of May 2019 is 20th June 2019. However the GST website does not give a month option beyond April 2019. What is the procedure to firle the Ma 19 Return ?

    1. GSTR 3b is available on the portal for e-filing. it may be the case that you have not filed a return for any of the previous months.

  22. i have migrated GST registration no. i filed nil GST return for july 17 & aug 17 & after that on 30.10.2017 i filled the cancellation through form GST-REG29. i received a confirmation mail from the Gst department, on same date, that my gst no is cancelled with immediate effect. after that i did not filled any gst return & also my gst login & password got blocked from the same date. but regularly i was getting mails for non filling of gst returns. after that on 29.10.2018 department has cancelled my gst no. now on 28.06.2019, department has reactivated my gst no. without any request from my side. i have no business since i have taken this gst no & earlier also. all returns which is filled up to aug 17 was for nil translations. now please tell me what can i do. i do not want to Continue with the gst no, as i have no business.

    1. Department does not reactivate any GST number without a request from the assessee. So please contact the department for assistance.

  23. My client has not filed GST-3b from Dec-2017 onwards. So should the delay in number of days be counted from 31/03/2019 onwards or from the due dates of the respective months onwards subject to a max of 5000 CGST and 5000 SGST

    1. late fee is applicable from the due dates of the respective returns in your case and not from 31.03.2019 since waiver was only when the assessee has filed pending returns during the period beginning from 22 Dec 2018 and ending on 31st March 2019.

    1. In your case, you can enter correct turnover in GSTR 1 for the month of march and not include this in GSTR 3b for the month of April. you may provide the clarification afterwards in case of mismatch. also, you may deposit the additional tax liability along with interest.

  28. Hi!

    Could any one tell me why does this warning appear on filing gstr 3b return that late fee will be added in the next month.

    Please note –
    1) We have opted for quarterly filing of GSTR-1
    2) This GSTR 3B return was filed for August 2019.
    3) It is filed today i.e. 20th September 2019.

    Why this warning appears mostly on month before the quarter filing is due. In this case it is next month i.e. OCT (for period of Jul to Sep)

    1. this message says that “in case if any late fee is applicable because of delay in filing returns for that month/quarter, then late fee for that particular month/quarter will be reflected in next month GSTR -3B”
