No GSTR-3B filing extension after December

Bengaluru: The government on Saturday ruled out any further extension of timeline after December for filing GSTR-3B tax returns by businesses. GSTR-3B is a simple return form introduced by the CBEC for the month of July and August, following the roll out of the Goods and Services Tax from July 1.

"We have already extended the period for GSTR-3B... People have to file their own self-assessed summary return till December, and there will not be any extension of time as far as GSTR-3B is concerned," Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia said. Adhia was speaking to reporters here after the first meeting of the Group of Ministers (GOM) formed to tackle the IT-related glitches in GST network. He was asked whether the government intends to further extend time for filing returns under GST.
The GST Council had earlier allowed businesses to file GSTR-3B till December. Adhia said that the Government had earlier decided to extend the time limit to have a proper learning period due to GSTN portal hiccups.
