Industry asked to be cautious while filing annual GST returns form

The finance ministry issued a statement on Thursday stating that the annual returns form is now available on the common portal for filing and asked Goods and Services Tax (GST) payers to file their returns at the earliest.

Trade and industry has been asked by the finance ministry to exercise caution while filing the annual GST returns form as the facility to revise it is not available, media reports said.

In a statement on Thursday, the ministry said the annual returns form is now available on the common portal for filing and asked Goods and Services Tax (GST) payers to file their returns at the earliest.

On 31 December 2018, the ministry had notified the annual returns forms GSTR-9, GSTR-9A and GSTR-9C. The GST Council had in December extended the last date for filing these forms by three months to June 30, 2019.

Notably, GSTR-9 is the annual return form for normal taxpayers, GSTR-9A is for composition taxpayers, while GSTR-9C is a reconciliation statement.

"Taxpayers may please exercise caution while filing this return as facility to revise the Form GSTR-9 and Form GSTR-9A is not available," the ministry said.
