Section 47 of Central Goods & Services Tax Act, 2017 (CGST Act, 2017) deals with the registered persons who fails to furnish the details of outward or inward supply required under Section 37 or 38 or returns required under Section 39 or 47 by due date shall pay a late fee of Rs. 25 for every day but if there is no outward supply in any month/quarter, late fees payable is Rs. 10 for every day, subject to maximum of Rs. 250.
