Process of Filing GST Return
There are generally no compulsory registrations required to be taken by the Sole Proprietor. However, following voluntary registrations may be taken if the owner wishes to expand the business:
Tax liability is computed after deducting input tax liability from output tax liability.
GST return is prepared on the GSTN portal or using third-party software. We need to Enter the values in the such as Tax on outward and reverse charge inward supplies, Inter-state supplies, Eligible ITC, Exempt, Nil and Non-GST inward supplies. Only the totals need to be entered under each of the heads in GSTR-3B. Interest and late fees need to be filled after calculation, if applicable.
After saving and verifying the filled information, the GSTR-3B can be submitted by clicking on Submit button. On submission, success message is displayed and the added data is frozen for further editing or update. The ITC and Liability Ledger will also get updated on submission.
After submission, ‘Payment of Tax’ tab is enabled for paying taxes and offsetting the liability. Check Balance can be clicked to check the balance available under various heads for offsetting. Offset Liability can be clicked to offset the liability of tax payable against the input tax credit available for set-off and pay off the liability.
After paying the liability, click on ‘File GSTR-3B with DSC’ or ‘File GSTR-3B with EVC’ button. After signing the same, the filing is complete. The status of GSTR-3B will reflect as ‘Filed’.

Every business registered under GST needs to file both GSTR-1 and GSTR-3B.
- Why should you get this registered?
Filing GST Returns is one of the compliances under the Indirect Tax Laws. Moreover, both the returns are mandatory for the suppliers despite the fact that they have NIL transactions. Late filing or non-filing of these returns may attract heavy penalties on the suppliers. The late fee is INR 50 per day and for NIL returns it is INR 20 per day.
Interest @18% per annum is payable on the amount of outstanding tax to be paid.
