You might have received complaint about late fee being applied in case of Sept month 3B. This is not for any delay on filing of Sept month as we have not reached 20th Oct. It is on account of late filing of return for previous period.

The system does entry into ledgers from 3B return on the date on which return is submitted (entries get frozen). The late fee till that date is applied, if date of submission is later than the last date of filing. In case the return is filed later than the date of filing then the late fee for the gap between date of filing and last date of filing return or date of submission (whichever is later) is added in the next month’s return.

In case a taxpayer had submitted last month’s return on 22nd Sept (D1) and filed the return on 26th Sept (D2), then late fee was calculated for 22nd -20th Sept and shown in the payment sheet of Sept Return (2*100*2). . The delay between date of submission (D1) and date of filing (D2) [26th -22nd Sept] amounting to 4*2*100  is to be paid by the taxpayer. The same is now being added in the return and shown to the taxpayer.

Hope this clarifies the position.

    GST is good step by the Govt but penalty for NIL business is injustice with innocent people. See, people doing their business in remote area are finding it very difficult to file return where internet connectivity is not available.

  2. Rishi Bhardwaj says:

    As per notification on 10 the Oct 2017. All penalties is waived off for the return filing for the month of July August September, you will check it from electronic cash ledger I.e. amount refunded, which will further used to pay tax liability.

  3. Diganta Bairagi says:

    Submitted Aug 3b …nil return.
    Penalty shows 5400/=
    I support GST, But the rate of penalty is too high.
    No penalty should be imposed for nil returns…

  4. Ashish Bhalla says:

    Same Here, I got some misunderstanding that first we had to complete all 3 GSTR’S of july then we will start filling of august, that’s why i just left filling of august, but after 28 days i came to know that august 3b is mandatory before July gstr 1 & gstr 2, and when i filled GSTR 3B of august website showed me a penalty of Rs 5600, which is very much high for a common man, Please i support GST but for some months please remove this penalty and late fees columns, Kindly support innocent people
