26th August 2021
From 1st September 2021, taxpayers will not be able to file GSTR-1 or use the IFF for August 2021 on the GST portal if they have pending GSTR-3B filings. It applies if GSTR-3B is pending for the past two months till July 2021 (monthly filer) or for the last quarter ending 30th June 2021 (quarterly filer) as per CGST Rule 59(6).
GSTR-1 is a monthly or quarterly return that should be filed by every registered GST taxpayer, except a few as given in further sections. It contains details of all outward supplies i.e sales. The return has a total of 13 sections, listed down as follows:
The due dates for GSTR-1 are based on your aggregate turnover. Businesses with sales of up to Rs.5 crore have an option to file quarterly returns under the QRMP scheme and are due by the 13th of the month following the relevant quarter.
Whereas, those taxpayers who do not opt for the QRMP scheme or have a total turnover above Rs.5 crore must file the return every month on or before the 11th of the next month.
|For businesses with turnover||Month/Quarter||Due Date|
|More than Rs.5 crore||October 2021||11th November 2021|
|November 2021||11th December 2021|
|December 2021||11th January 2022|
|January 2022||26th February 2022|
|February 2022||11th March 2022|
|March 2022||11th April 2022|
|Turnover up to Rs.5 crore |
|Oct-Dec 2021||13th January 2022|
|Jan-Mar 2022||13th April 2022|
Every registered person is required to file GSTR-1 irrespective of whether there are any transactions during the period or not. For nil GSTR-1 filers, there is a facility to file through an SMS that began from the 1st week of July 2020. The following registered persons are not required to file GSTR-1:
A return once filed cannot be revised under GST. Any mistake made in the return can be rectified in the GSTR-1 filed for the next period (month/quarter). It means that if a mistake is made in GSTR-1 of January 2022, rectification for the same can be made in the GSTR-1 of February 2022 or subsequent months.
The following table explains the late fee to be charged (for other than nil GSTR-1 filing cases):
|Name of the Act||Late fees for every day of delay||Maximum late fee |
(if the annual turnover in the previous financial year is up to Rs.1.5 crore)
Maximum late fee
(If the annual turnover ranges between Rs.1.5 crore and Rs.5 crore)
Maximum late fee
(If the turnover is more than Rs.5 crore)
|CGST Act, 2017||Rs 25||Rs 1,000||Rs 2,500||Rs 5,000|
|Respective SCGT Act, 2017 / UTGST Act, 2017||Rs 25||Rs 1,000||Rs 2,500||Rs 5,000|
|Total late fees to be paid||Rs 50||Rs 2,000||Rs 5,000||Rs 10,000|
The following table explains the late fee to be charged in case of nil GSTR-1 filing:
|Name of the Act||Late fees for every day of delay||Maximum late fee|
|CGST Act, 2017||Rs 10||Rs 250|
|Respective SCGT Act, 2017 / UTGST Act, 2017||Rs 10||Rs 250|
|Total late fees to be paid||Rs 20||Rs 500|
The original late fees used to be Rs.100 per day under each CGST Act and respective SGST/ UTGST Act. Also, the original late fee for Nil return filers used to be Rs.25 per day under each CGST Act and respective SGST/ UTGST Act.
However, CBIC has notified reduced late fees to provide relief for businesses having difficulties in GST return filing.
Also, the CBIC issued notification 20/2021 dated 1st June 2021, to cap the maximum late fee chargeable from June 2021 onwards.
FIling on ClearTax GST Software is simple and quick. Here is a detailed guide to file GSTR-1 on ClearTax GST Software.
Yes, filing GSTR 1 is mandatory even if there were no sales during a month/quarter. In this case, you have to file Nil GSTR-1.
You can upload invoices anytime. It is highly advised that you upload invoices at regular intervals during the month to avoid bulk upload at the time of filing a return. This is because bulk upload takes a lot of time.
After uploading bills you can make changes multiple times. There is no restriction on changing invoices after uploading them. But you can change an invoice only before submitting a return. Once submitted, the numbers are frozen.
Yes, you can file the GSTR-1 even after the due date. However, you have to pay a late fee based on the delayed number of days.
You have to report all the sales detail in GSTR-1, whereas you have to report summarised figures of sales, ITC claimed, and net tax payable in GSTR-3B return.
No, with effect from 1st January 2022, you have to file GSTR-1 before filing the GSTR-3B return.
You should not file GSTR-1. However, you have to use Form CMP-08 to make tax payments on a quarterly basis.
GSTR-1 is a return where details of sales are filed with the government. Hence, there is no need to pay tax after filing this return. However, you have to pay the tax due while filing GSTR-3B.
You need to continue filing GSTR-1 on a quarterly basis and the GSTR-3B will also need to be filed on a quarterly basis with monthly tax payments. For more information about the QRMP scheme, read our article on “All about the QRMP scheme.”
You can upload the invoices related to the first two months of the quarter using the Invoice Furnishing Facility (IFF) and last month’s invoices in the quarterly GSTR-1. Click here to read more about IFF.
Yes, you can make amendments to an already filed GSTR-1 of a particular tax period by declaring the amended details in the return.
For example, Mr X of Kerala has sold goods to Mr Y of Karnataka for Rs. 1,00,000 on 30th August 2021 and declared in the GSTR-1 of August 2021. Now he realised that he made a mistake in the date of the invoice, so he can make an amended invoice with the correct invoice date i.e., 16th August 2021. This amended invoice can be shown in the GSTR-1 of September 2021.
The ‘Revised date’ to be mentioned in an amended invoice must be not later than the last date of the original invoice tax period.
For example, if an original invoice dated 12th July 2021 is being amended in August then the revised invoice date cannot be later than 31st July 2021.
The following details cannot be amended at Invoice level :
Note: However, you can replace the existing place of supply with another place of supply with some limitations. Refer to the examples given below.
With respect to Place of Supply, note the following:
Let us understand the above with the following scenarios:
|Nature||Place of supply||Rate of Tax||Taxable Value||Amendment|
We can see that in all those cases where the original place of supply was amended from Kerala to Karnataka (whether or not there was a change in tax rates or invoicing), the amendment is allowed.
But in the last case where in addition to Kerala, Karnataka is also added as a place of supply (irrespective of change in tax rates or invoicing) amendment does not hold good
