The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) notified the Central Goods and Services Tax (Thirteenth Amendment) Rules, 2020 which seeks to amend the Central Goods and Services Tax Rules, 2017.
The Board inserted Rule 61(6) to provide a due date for filing GSTR-3B for the months of October 2020 to March 2021 as 20th of next month if the turnover of the individual is more than 5 Crores.
The notification says that every registered person or an Input Service Distributor or a non-resident taxable person or a person paying tax under section 10 or section 51 or, as the case may be, under section 52 shall furnish a return in FORM GSTR-3B, electronically through the common portal either directly or through a Facilitation Centre notified by the Commissioner, on or before the 20th day of the month succeeding such tax period.
This provision is not applicable to the registered person referred to in section 14 of the Integrated Goods and Services Tax Act, 2017.
The amendment laid down the the condition for furnishing a return in FORM GSTR-3B that taxpayers must have aggregate turnover of up to Rs.5 crore in the previous financial year, whose principal place of business is in the States of Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Goa, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, the Union territories of Daman and Diu and Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Puducherry, Andaman and Nicobar Islands or Lakshadweep, the return in FORM GSTR-3B of the said rules for the months of October, 2020 to March, 2021 shall be furnished electronically through the common portal, on or before the twenty-second day of the month succeeding such month.
