Our country is going through one of its biggest tax reforms ever. While the whole world is watching the roll out without battling an eye, India is on the way towards a destination based tax reporting system.

Now, every transaction must be reported along with invoice which identifies the seller and recipient of good and services.

In order to record such invoices, the process has been simplified by removing a myriad of taxes. The entire nation, now reports through same structure.

Understanding the GST Returns

For accurate updating of invoices, tax payers have to file some returns with the government. These are mandatory and a non-compliance to the same may lead to a lot of losses, including disallowance of input credit besides mandate penalties and interests.

These returns are so designed that the transactions are well in sync with one and another.

Here are different types of GST returns and their details:

GST Returns to be filled by tax payers:


All outward supplies along with goods and services are recorded in this form. The form must be filled and submitted by the 10th of every month. The form contains 13 different heads, including GSTIN of taxable person, name, gross turnover and many more details. You can involve GST Consultants in Delhi for accurate filling of the form and avoid unnecessary corrections.

It is crucial for taxpayers to file mandatory GST returns accurately to ensure compliance and avoid penalties, loss of input credit, and interest charges. These returns are designed to maintain transaction synchronization. Understanding the different types of GST returns is essential, such as GSTR-1 for outward supplies, GSTR-2 for inward supplies, GSTR-3 for overall tax credit, and GSTR-9 for annual consolidation.
