Checklist for GST Annual return

Checklist for GST Annual return

The due date for filing the GST Annual return is very near. So, let us discuss the checklist for GST Annual return to make the process easier for the taxpayer and consultants. 

Four types of annual returns are there:

GSTR-9: Annual return for the regular taxpayer

GSTR-9A: If you have opted for the GST composition scheme, you become liable for filing the annual return form GSTR-9A, instead of GSTR-9.

GSTR-9B: Similarly, if you are an e-commerce operator who had filed GSTR-8 during the FY, you need to file GSTR-9B as your annual return.

GSTR-9C: If your annual turnover exceeds Rs 2 crores, you should file GSTR-9C along with your annual return. In this case, you also need to get your accounts audited.
