Whether I should declare the turnover as per GSTR 1 or GSTR 3b or some other figure?

In GST annual return you need to declare the actual figures. They may differ from GSTR 1 or GSTR 3b or Both.

What is the treatment of variance in data in financials and GST returns?

Two scenarios are possible in this case-

New liability is there due to difference-

The taxpayer should pay this liability. Form DRC 03 is the form for intimating the payment. Interest at the prescribed rate is also required.

e.g.- Turnover of Rs. 5,00,000 was missing in GSTR 3b. But in GSTR 1 it was correct. Here the payment is missed. We make payment via GSTR 3b.

Turnover in table 4 will include this Rs. 5 lac. Payment of tax and interest on this amount shall be deposited with DRC 03.

No liability arises due to difference-

In this case, correct data is required in the annual return. Thus there is no need to make any payment.

How to show the turnover of B2B nature shown in B2C in GSTR 1 in the annual return of FY 2017-18?
