Only 11 Days Left to File Your First GST Return (GSTR-3B)

How to go about filing GSTR 3B

GSTR-3B

On the 18th of June, 2017 – a much celebrated decision was put to effect at the 17th Council meeting – that to extend the timeline for invoice – wise return filing in Form GSTR 1 and Form GSTR 2 for the first two months of the era.
 
The move which was fuelled by the concerns raised by various trade and industrial bodies, was made to smoothen the roll-out of across the country. And it quite successfully will, as businesses will need to file a much simplified return, by declaring the summary of their inward and outward supplies for the months of July and August. However the invoice – wise details for both months, also do need to be filed, but at a later date. 
 
The revised return days will not only provide an additional 25 days to businesses to get cosy with the era, but also keep late fees and penalties at bay, during the interim period.

Revised Return Timelines

    • Inward supplies liable to reverse charge: You need to capture the ITC of paid on inward supplies liable for reverse charge, such as, sponsorship services, purchase from URD, and so on, other than import of goods or services.
    • Inward Supplies from ISD: Input tax credit received from Input Service Distributor (ISD).
    • All other ITC: Apart from above, ITC of other inward supplies has to be captured here.
  • ITC Reversed: You need to provide the ITC reversible on usage of inputs / input services / capital goods used for non-business purpose, or partly used for exempt supplies. Also, if the depreciation is claimed on tax component of capital goods, plant and machinery - then the ITC will not be allowed. Such reversals needs to be captured in this table.
  • Eligible ITC: Can be calculated by deducting ITC Reversed from ITC Available
  • Ineligible ITC: You need to provide the details of paid on inward supplies listed in negative list, which are not eligible to fetch input tax credit.

Note: The total taxable value, to be used at all points in time, while filing your GSTR 3B can be calculated as:
 
Taxable value =  Value of invoices + value of Debit Notes – value of credit notes + value of advances received for which invoices have not been issued in the same month – value of advances adjusted against invoices.
 
Returns including GSTR-3B and subsequent returns like GSTR-1, GSTR-2 and GSTR-3 can be easily filed using GST-ready software Tally.ERP 9.
