What is the GSTR-3B?

The GSTR-3B is a self-declared summary of your GST return filed every month (or quarterly for QRMP scheme subscribers) along with GSTR 1 and GSTR 2 return forms. It. It became mandatory for a registered taxpayer to file starting July 2017.

Some things to remember about the GSTR-3B:

  • You need to file a separate GSTR-3B for every GSTIN.
  • You must pay your GST liability on or before the date of filing your GSTR-3B.
  • Once filed, the GSTR-3B cannot be modified.
  • You must file your GSTR-3B even if you have zero liability.

All GST registered taxpayers must file their GSTR-3B every month, except for the following businesses:

  • Input Service Distributors & Composition Dealers
  • Suppliers of OIDAR (Online Information Database Access and Retrieval Services)
  • Non-resident taxable persons

When is the GSTR-3B due?

Since your GSTR form is a monthly return form, you need to file it every month unless you file your forms quarterly for QRMP. The deadline for submission every month is the 20th of the following month.

For example, your GSTR-3B for October 2021 must be filed by 20th November 2021.
