Finance Ministry extends GST return filing date
Under GST, the GSTR-3B of any month should be filed by 20th of the following month. Previously the time for filing of GSTR-3B returns for September month was October 20. Concerned over this, the traders had expressed concern over the fact that by October 20, the sale returns filed by the supplier will not match their sales returns. ITC has the advantage of taking advantage of the return on the basis of GST-3B, so the claims for ITC and GST-3B are being kept the same.
