GST return filing is required for various entities and individuals who are registered under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime in India. Here’s a breakdown of who needs to file GST returns:

  • Regular Taxpayers: Regular taxpayers, whose aggregate turnover exceeds the prescribed threshold limit (which varies based on the nature of the business and state), need to file regular GST returns.
  • Composition Scheme Dealers: Taxpayers opting for the composition scheme under GST are required to file quarterly returns using Form GSTR-4. However, they are not required to provide detailed invoices for their sales.
  • E-commerce Operators: E-commerce operators or aggregators facilitating the supply of goods or services through their platforms are required to file GST returns. They need to file Form GSTR-8, which provides details of supplies made through the platform.
  • Input Service Distributors (ISD): ISDs, who receive invoices for input services and distribute input tax credit to other business verticals within the same entity, are required to file GST returns using Form GSTR-6.
  • Non-Resident Taxpayers: Non-resident taxpayers supplying goods or services in India are required to file GST returns, albeit under a different mechanism than regular taxpayers.
  • Casual Taxable Persons: Individuals or businesses operating temporarily in India, without having a fixed place of business, are considered casual taxable persons. They are required to file GST returns for the duration of their operations.
  • Government Entities: Various government entities, including Central and State Government departments, agencies, and local authorities, that are liable to deduct tax at source (TDS) or collect tax at source (TCS) under GST are required to file returns accordingly.

It’s important for all registered taxpayers to comply with GST return filing requirements to avoid penalties and ensure smooth functioning of their businesses under the GST regime. Non-compliance with GST return filing obligations can lead to penalties, interest charges, and other legal consequences. Therefore, it’s advisable to stay updated with GST regulations and file returns accurately and on time.

  • Import/Export Documents: Documents such as shipping bills, bill of entry, and export invoices for import and export transactions, including details of IGST paid or refunded.
