GSTR 6 Form Filing Due Date For March 2023

GSTR 6 Form Filing Due Date

GSTR-6 is a return form for all the input service distributors registered under GST. Every ISD is required to file invoice information at the GSTN portal.

As the filing of GSTR-6 occurs after modifying, correcting, removing and adding information under GSTR-6A, most of the information is auto-populated in GSTR-6 from GSTR-6A.

Who Should File GSTR 6?

GSTR 6, a monthly return form, is filed by an Input Service Distributor. Input Service Distributors need to fill in all details related to ITC received and distributed by them. The due date from GSTR 6 contains 11 sections.

The Input Service Distributors include:

  • Composition Dealers
  • Taxpayers liable to collect TCS
  • Taxpayers liable to deduct TDS
  • Suppliers of OIDAR (Online Information and Database Access or Retrieval)
  • Compounding taxable person
  • Non-resident Taxable Person

Who is an ISD (Input Service Distributor)?

Under GST, Input Service Distributor (ISD) is a business that receives invoices against services availed by its branches or other state units.

In return, it issues an ISD invoice that clearly states the distribution of taxes paid for each branch in a proportion with the goods and services availed by each branch. The Taxes distributed subsume credit of central tax (CGST), State tax (SGST)/ Union territory tax (UTGST) or integrated tax (IGST) on the goods and services offered by the supplier to a particular branch.

While each branch can have its own GSTIN but it must have the same PAN as that of the ISD. The Return details are shared with the particular branch/recipient as part of the GSTR 2A return form.

These details must be included by the recipients or the branch in the GSTR-2 to claim credits. It must also be noted that ISD is not required while filing Annual returns.
