A taxpayer whose GST registration has either been cancelled or surrendered is required to file GSTR-10. It is a statement of stocks held by such taxpayers on the day immediately preceding the date of cancellation. It is a one-time final return. It should be filed within three months from the date of cancellation or the date of the cancellation order, whichever is earlier.
Below are the pre-conditions for filing Form GSTR-10:
Step 1: Log in to the GST portal.
Step 2: Navigate to the GSTR-10 page.
Go to Services>Returns>Final Return
Go through the important message, as highlighted below, before clicking on ‘Prepare Online’.
