Some Important Points regarding GSTR- 3B

๐ŸŽ **The first return of GST is here and is due for filing is *20th of August, 2017.* Most of the registered persons still havenโ€™t filed the Return GSTR-3B.

๐ŸŠ *Here are some points you need to remember for filing the first GST Return GSTR-3B.*
๐Ÿ‘‰ 1) It is *Mandatory* to file GSTR-3B and there is no exemption from filing GSTR-3B even if you have not carried on any business in the month of Julyโ€™2017. *NIL GSTR-3B* is also to be filed mandatorily.

๐Ÿ‘‰ 2) GSTR-3B is the *provisional return* for the month of Julyโ€™2017. Therefore all dealers who are required to file monthly returns under the GST Regime are required to file GSTR-3B.

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ *Composition dealers* are required to file *quarterly returns* therefore dealers who have opted for composition scheme are *not required* to file GSTR-3B.
๐Ÿ‘‰ 3) GSTR-3B is *not the final return* for the month of Julyโ€™2017 this is only a provisional return. GSTR-1, GSTR-2, GSTR-3 for Julyโ€™2017 are still required to be filed.
๐Ÿ‘‰ 4) *GSTR-3B cannot be revised.* Any revision in the figures for Julyโ€™2017 has to be done through GSTR-1, 2 and 3 to be filed later on.
๐Ÿ‘‰ 5) Any taxes due for Julyโ€™2017 *have to be paid* before filing GSTR-3B.
๐Ÿ‘‰ 6) If there is any change in the figures at the time of filing forms GSTR-1,2 & 3 and if there is excess tax payable then the same will have to be paid *with interest* before filing GSTR-3 due in September.
๐Ÿ‘‰ 7) If your input credits are more than your output in GSTR-3B then you *need not pay any taxes* before filing this return. However, it is to be noted that *no refund* can be claimed in form GSTR-3B and excess credit will be credited to the ITC Ledger.
๐Ÿ‘‰ 8) A very important point to remember about filing GSTR-3B is that the transitional credits available from the previous VAT/Service Tax/Excise regimes will *not be available for credit* and use in GSTR-3B. Any such credits have to be shown by filing form TRAN-1 and will be available for use only after filing *TRAN-1.*
๐Ÿ‘‰ 9) GSTR-3B is a simplified return where only *total figures* of purchases, sales input tax credits and payments are to be entered. Individual entries for each sale invoice are not to be entered in this return.
๐Ÿ‘‰ 10) GSTR-3B is to be filed from the period from which the *registration is taken by the supplier.* Therefore, if you have taken registration in the month of Augustโ€™2017 the option for filing GSTR-3B for Julyโ€™2017 will not be available and the no GSTR-3B is to be filed for Julyโ€™2017.
๐Ÿ‘‰ 11) GSTR-3B is to be filed through *online mode* on the GST Portal gst.gov.in
๐Ÿ‘‰ 12) Following details are to be shown in the return GSTR-3B. 
๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ a) *GSTIN number* of  Registered Person
๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ b) *Legal name* of Registered Person
๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ c1) Summary of Outward Supply &  Inward Supply under Reverse Charge
๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ c2) Bifurcation of Inter-state outward supplies as follows:
๐ŸŒœa) To unregistered Person

๐ŸŒœb) To Composite taxable Person

๐ŸŒœc) To UIN Holders

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ d) Summary of eligible ITC available and the ITC to be reversed and ITC which is ineligible bifurcated into IGST, CGST & SGST/UTSGT and Cess

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ g) Summary of tax category wise TDS/TCS credit
๐Ÿ‘‰ 13) Remember the order for set-off eligible ITC. ITC of IGST, CGST and SGST must be set-off from themselves (intra-head) first before being set-off inter-head. *Remember that CGST and SGST cannot be set-off against each other.*
๐Ÿ‘‰ 14) Any amounts to be paid on *reverse charges have also be shown and paid in GSTR-3B also.* Please remember that amount payable under reverse charges will *not be* available to be paid by utilising input credit. Amount payable on ๐Ÿ˜ก *reverse charges will have to paid by cash*.
๐Ÿ‘‰ 15) GSTR-3B can be submitted through digital signatures or Electronic verification code except for Companies where it has to be filed by dsc.
