Should I keep filing GSTR 3B after applying for GST cancellation until it gets canceled?
Should I keep filing GSTR 3B after applying for GST cancellation until it gets canceled or should I stop filing immediately after applying for the cancellation?
I’m not doing any business currently and all the past forms are filed perfectly (only filing nil forms for the namesake) but last time when applied for GST cancellation I stopped filing the GSTR forms immediately. And my cancellation was declined, mentioning the following reasons:
“1 Cancellation Details – Date from which registration is to be canceled – Date from Registration to be canceled is Incorrect. Enter correct date
2 Cancellation Details – Others (Please specify) – Please submit/upload All GSTR-1, GSTR 3B for the relevant period along with payment particulars and invoices received and raised by you.”
Once the application for cancellation of registration has been made, the registration of the person is deemed to have been suspended from the date of submission of such application or the date from which the cancellation is sought, whichever is later. Thus, the registered person can not make any taxable supply during the period of such suspension and is not required to file the return under section 39 (i.e. GSTR-3B).
