How to file GST return online?

GST Return Filing Online: After logging in on the portal, invoices need to be uploaded, following which an invoice reference number will be issued against each invoice. After that, outward return, inward return, and cumulative monthly return have to be filed online.

GST compliant sales and purchase invoices are required to file returns.

GST Return Filing Online: Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP government had launched the Goods and Services Tax (GST) in a historic midnight session of Parliament on July 1, 2017. Two years after its launch, there is still some obscurity about GST and its filing. To make it easy for people, the authorities have opened online channels for filing of the GST returns.

It is crucial to file GST returns under the GST regime because non-compliance and delay will lead to penalties and affect one’s compliance rating and timely refunds.

Here is how you can file your GST returns online:

GST returns can be filed online by visiting the GST portal– https://www.gst.gov.in/

GST compliant sales and purchase invoices are required to file returns.

The taxpayer will be issued a 15-digit GST identification number based on the state code and PAN number.

After logging in on the portal, invoices need to be uploaded, following which an invoice reference number will be issued against each invoice. After that, outward return, inward return, and cumulative monthly return have to be filed online.

The outward supply returns in GSTR-1 form through the information section at the GST Common Portal (GSTN) should be filed on or before 10th of the following month. Details of outward supplies furnished by the supplier will be made available in GSTR-2A to the recipient.

The portal gives an option to correct and refile the returns in case of errors.

The recipient has to verify, validate, and modify the details of outward supplies, and also file details of credit or debit notes. The details of inward supplies of taxable goods and services have to be furnished by the recipient in GSTR-2 form.

The supplier can either accept or reject the modifications of the details of inward supplies made by the recipient in GSTR-1A.

The details of inward and outward supplies can be uploaded on the GST portal on or before the due date.

It is to note that the preparation of data can be done offline and the internet is only needed for uploading the prepared file on the GST portal.
