About GST Return Filing
GST is a consumption-based tax and a comprehensive indirect tax which shall impose on the supply of goods and services. This taxation system is expected to make one taxation system within the entire country for all products and services. This would be the largest tax after independence and a blessing to the economy as it will eliminate the deficiencies of the current tax structure and provide a single tax on the supply of all goods and services.
A GST file return is filed with the GST department, including the details of purchases, sales, and tax paid and collected, and all the other details needed under the law. Further, GST return filing would be compulsory for everyone registered under the GST Act regardless of the fact whether there was any sale or any other activity made during the period; otherwise, late fees of INR 2000/- per month would be imposed.
GST returns are records that are filed with the GST department stating every detail which is needed under the law. Moreover, every registered person needs to file GST return online and which is suggested through software. If your turnover exceeds 20 lakh, then you need to get registered, and file 3 monthly GST returns.
