Introduction of GSTR 9

All the entities having GST registration as regular taxpayers are required to file annual return in form GSTR 9 for the financial year 2017-18 irrespective of their turnover during the return period. Hence an entity having no transaction during the year is also required to file GSTR 9.

A registered taxpayer whose registration has been cancelled during the year is also required to file annual return unless final return has been filed and cancellation completed before 31st March 2018. It is mandatory to file Form GSTR 1 and Form GSTR 3B for the F Y 2017-18 before filling this return.
