Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a tax system introduced in India in July 2017, which replaced various indirect taxes. Goods and Services Tax is a comprehensive tax levied on the value added at each stage of the supply chain. GST has helped in making the taxation system simpler, transparent and more efficient.
One of the essential aspects of GST compliance is GST return filing. GST return is a document that contains details of income earned and tax paid by a registered dealer during a specified period. It is a record of all sales, purchases, and taxes paid or collected by a business during a specific period.
The GST return filing process is a mandatory requirement for all registered dealers under GST. GST return filing process involves uploading invoices and other transaction details to the GST portal. In this article, we will discuss the GST return filing process, and all you need to know about GST registration and GST return filing, and GST compliance.
GST return filing process involves the following steps:
Step 1: Registering for GST The first step in the GST return filing process is to register for GST. The registration process is online, and it requires a few documents such as PAN, Aadhaar card, bank details, and business registration documents.
Step 2: Maintaining Books of Accounts Registered dealers are required to maintain proper books of accounts, including sales and purchase invoices, receipts, payments, and other financial documents. The books of accounts must be maintained in electronic form, and they must be updated regularly.
Step 3: Filing GST Returns Registered dealers are required to file GST returns on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis, depending on their turnover. The GST return filing process involves uploading invoices and other transaction details to the GST portal. The GST portal then calculates the tax liability and credits available and generates a summary of the return.
Step 4: Paying Taxes After filing the GST return, registered dealers are required to pay the tax liability within the due date. GST payment can be made online through the GST portal.

GSTR-7: GSTR-7 is a monthly return that businesses must file to report the details of tax deducted at source (TDS) and the tax deposited.
GSTR-8: GSTR-8 is a monthly return that e-commerce operators must file to report the details of supplies made through their platform and the tax collected.
GSTR-9: GSTR-9 is an annual return that businesses must file to reconcile their input tax credit and output tax liability for the financial year.
GSTR-10: GSTR-10 is a return that businesses must file when their GST registration is cancelled or surrendered.
