In order to ease the process of filing of GST Returns, the Government has initiated the facility of SMS Services through which NIL GST Returns can be filed without logging to the GST Portal. Facility for GSTR 3B has already been available since 8th June 2020 and facility for GSTR1 will be available from 1st week of July 2020.

Steps to file NIL GSTR3B are :-

1) In order to initiate the Nil filing, send a SMS to 14409 from registered Mobile Number as NIL<space>3B<space>GSTIN<space>Tax period.

For example: NIL 3B 09xxxxxxxxxxx1C 062020 (for monthly return of June 2020).

 2) Then a Taxpayer will get a six-digit code with validity up to 30 minutes.

3) Now a taxpayer has to confirm their Nil statement filing by sending CNF<space>3B<space>CODE to 14409.

For example: CNF 3B 123456

4) On successful code validation, the return will be filed and taxpayers will receive an Acknowledgement number through SMS.

Steps to file NIL GSTR1 are :-

1) In order to initiate the Nil filing, send a SMS to 14409 from registered Mobile Number as NIL<space>R1<space>GSTIN<space>Tax period.

For example: NIL R1 09xxxxxxxxxxx1C 062020 (for quarterly return of April-June 2020).

2) Then a Taxpayer will get a six-digit code with validity up to 30 minutes.

3) Now a taxpayer has to confirm their Nil statement filing by sending CNF<space>R1<space>CODE to 14409.

For example: CNF R1 123456

4) On successful code validation, the return will be filed and taxpayers will receive an Acknowledgement number through SMS.
