Creation and Submission of GSTR- 3B | GST Part-V

This is a Part-V of our ongoing GST series of articles. Today we will discuss about GSTR-3B in this article. Though we have an institute which specializes in GST Training, Taxation Training, we believe that the same knowledge should be shared to common public though they are not part of our GST Course or Taxation Course. Ok let us discuss about GSTR-3B.

GSTR-3B is a simplified summary return and the purpose of the return is for taxpayers to declare their summary GST liabilities for the tax period and the discharge of these liabilities in a timely manner

A normal taxpayer is required to file GSTR-1, 2, & 3 returns for every tax period. In case of extension of due dates for filing of GSTR-1 and GSTR-2, GSTR-3B needs to be filed and subsequently if there is any discrepancy between the system generated 3B and earlier filed 3B the taxpayer will have to pay additional tax, liability and other dues. Looks simple huh…? Actually my accountants / professionals find it very difficult to prepare this due to lack of their GST Training and Taxation Training. Hence, they join various GST Courses or Taxation Courses. Hence, as the best GST Training Institute in Ahmedabad and the best Taxation Training Institute in Ahmedabad, we feel that it is our social responsibility to spread such articles among general public for their benefit.
