Mistakes while filing your GST return is normal. However, since making changes and amendments in the GST forms are limited, it is important to understand the mistakes that can be corrected, process of correction and timelines for the same.
Process of Amendment in GSTR 1 is as follows:
Selecting the filing Period:
The taxpayer needs to select the GST Return filing period in the month in which the amendment is made. For example: if the amendment is made in April then the filing period will be April in case of monthly filing. In case of quarterly filing, the filing period will be May if the amendment is of April (March-May).
Kindly note the date of revised amended invoice date must be the last date of the original invoice tax-period. For example: if an original invoice dated 12-03-2020 is amended in April then the amended invoice date should not be later than 31-03-2020.
