    I have the GST liability of 20880 for July. I paid the taxes using the challan and the cash balance of 20880 is reflecting. On selecting the set off button, I am getting an error message that the two are not matched. SGST and CGST values are matched in both liability and cash. I don’t know how to proceed?

      There is pressure to file the GST Return3B and also help & tips are given but there is still confusion of each coloum and items. There is coloum for out wards tax but we are not finding any input credit and there is no coloum to show the actual input reciviable for the month. We think this return is very tough and not clear for any layman.
