Guide to File CMP-02 on GST Portal

Updated on:  

08 min read

When a dealer wants to opt for Composition Scheme under GST, they have to intimate the government about it. This can be done by filing Form GST CMP-01 or Form GST CMP-02.

CMP-01 is a form to be filed by a migrated taxpayer who wants to opt for Composition Scheme. The due date for this was 1st August 2017 (1 month from July 2017).  A taxpayer who wants to opt for Composition Scheme for a financial year or during the middle of a financial year has to inform the government about their choice. This is to be done by filing GST CMP-02 If CMP-02 is filed in the middle of the financial year, the rules of the scheme are applicable from the month immediately succeeding the month in which CMP-02 is filed.

For example – A taxpayer files CMP-02 in the month of December 2017. This means that the rules of the Composition Scheme will be applicable from January 2018. Both CMP-01 and CMP-02 are required to be filed online on the GST Portal/ GSTN and the process to file is the same.
