Benefits of GST Return Filing

GST Eliminates Cascading Effect

Earlier there were many instances where tax on tax was paid for a single transaction. As GST did away with several other taxes like central excise duty, service tax, customs duty, and state-level value-added tax, you no longer are subjected to paying tax on tax. This saves you money.

Higher Threshold

The threshold for GST is aggregate turnover exceeding 40 lakhs for sale of goods and aggregate turnover exceeding 20 lakhs for sale of services. This means small businesses falling below this threshold limit are not subject to GST Filing.

Easier for Startups and E-commerce Businesses

The GST system has made it easier for startups and e-commerce companies to manage their taxes. E-commerce particularly suffered from different tax laws across different states which are now eradicated by GST.

More Organised System

Before the GST tax return filing system was disorganised. Now, all taxes are paid online and major hassles that were a part of tax filing have been eliminated in the process of introducing GST.


Who Is Eligible for GST Return?

  • Regular enterprises with an annual aggregate revenue of more than ₹5 crore
  • Taxpayers who did not choose the QRMP plan are required to file two monthly returns and one yearly return under the GST system
  • QRMP filers must submit nine GSTR files annually, which include four GSTR-1 and three GSTR-3B forms as well as an annual return. It should be noted that even if QRMP filers submit their returns on a quarterly basis, they must pay tax on a monthly basis
  • Additionally, separate statements and returns must be filed in other circumstances, such as in the case of composition dealers, who must submit five GSTR files annually (4 statement-cum-challans in CMP-08 and 1 annual return GSTR-4).

Documents Required for GST Return Filing

  • Invoices issued to persons with GSTIN or B2B invoices
  • Invoices issued to persons without GSTIN or B2C invoices
  • This needs to be submitted only when its total value is above ₹2.5 lakhs
  • A consolidation of inter-state sales
  • HSN-wise summary of all goods sold
  • Any other debit or credit notes or advance receipts

GST Return Filing under the Composition Scheme


Taxpayers registered under the Composition Scheme must pay taxes using CMP-08 every quarter and file GSTR-4 annually through the GST Common Portal or a GST Facilitation Centre. The due date for the GST return for Composition Scheme registrants is the 18th of the month following each quarter, namely 18 April, 18 July, 18 October, and 18 January. The GST return must contain details of:

  • Details of supplies received from registered and unregistered persons, both intra-state and inter-state, should be provided on an invoice-wise basis.
  • The GST return filed by a Composition Scheme supplier must also contain a summary of the supplies they have made to their customers.

If a person registered under GST has chosen to pay taxes under the Composition Scheme from the start of a financial year, they must file monthly GST returns on the 10th, 15th, and 20th of each month, and keep filing monthly returns until the due date of furnishing the return for September of the next financial year or the annual return of the preceding financial year, whichever comes first. Therefore, even if a taxpayer opts for the Composition Scheme from April onwards, they must continue filing monthly GST returns until September.

GST Payment for Different Taxpayers

The GST payment process is largely the same for all taxpayers. Payment is not required if the electronic cash ledger has a sufficient cash balance. In other words, if the cash balance is insufficient, the taxpayer must utilise a challan to deposit money into the cash ledger using prescribed payment methods. The following is an overview of the payment process for various taxpayer types

Regular Taxpayer

Around the time of submitting GSTR-3B, they must use the PMT-06 challan to make any GST payments to the electronic cash ledger. The details will be published in GSTR-3B. They can also generate a challan and pay for it before or after logging in, or while completing GSTR-3B returns.

Quarterly Taxpayer

These are taxpayers who have chosen to participate in the GST QRMP scheme. They must deposit tax directly utilising the PMT-6 in the first two months of a quarter and make payment while filing GSTR-3B in the last month of the quarter.

Taxpayers Filing Nil GST Returns

For the relevant tax period, whether for the month or quarter, these taxpayers have no sales or purchases, and no tax is due. They don’t have to use the challan or pay anything.

Composition Taxable Persons

These taxpayers must total up their sales/turnover information for the quarter in challan CMP-08 and pay the tax.
