5.5 million GST returns filed in January
As many as 5.5 million goods and services tax (GST) returns have been filed for January so far, Goods and Services Tax Network Chairman Ajay Bhushan Pandey said on Wednesday. The last date for filing initial GSTR-3B returns for a month is the 20th of the subsequent month. Hence, the sales returns for January had to be filed by February 20.
However, businesses can continue to file returns with a late fee.“The total number of 3B GST returns filed in January till date is 55 lakh (5.5 million),” Pandey told reporters here.
