Good news for GST taxpayers is that government is launching interest calculator in GSTR-3B Return very soon which will calculate accurate head-wise interest on late payment of tax. Return filing will be easy because we have to not calculate interest.
According to government, this functionality will arrive at the system computed interest on the basis of the tax liability values declared by the taxpayers. The interest appliable, if any, on the tax liability declared in the GSTR-3B of a particular tax-period will be computed after the filing of the said GSTR-3B. These system computed interest values will be auto-populated in the Table-5.1 of the GSTR-3B of the next tax-period. The facility would be similar to the collection of Late fees for GSTR-3B, filed after the Due date, posted in the next period’s GSTR-3B.
It is also stated that this functionality will further improve ease of filing return under GST and this is in the direction of further reducing the compliance burden for taxpayers.
