GST Return and Type of GST Return

A return is a document including details of income which a taxpayer is
required to file with the tax authorities. This can help tax authorities to
calculate tax liability.
Under GST, a registered dealer has to file GST returns that include:
• Purchases
• Sales
• Output GST (On sales)
• Input tax credit (GST paid on purchases)
To file GST returns sales and purchase invoices are required. In the GST
regime any Regular business has to file two monthly returns and one annual
return. This amounts to 26 returns in a year.
The number of GST filings vary for Quarterly GSTR-1 filers. The number of
GST filings online for them is 17 in a year.
There are separate returns required to be filed by special cases such
as Composition dealers whose number of GST filings is 5 in a year.
