GST return form GSTR 3B is a monthly self-declaration, which a taxpayer is required to file on a monthly basis. However, the taxpayer is not required to provide invoice level details while filing GSTR 3B. This leaves scope for errors while computing output tax liability and Input Tax Credit (ITC). Thereby affecting the tax payable and ITC claim.
Until now, the taxpayer had no option for making changes or corrections in the GSTR-3B once the files have been submitted. But now, understanding the inconvenience taxpayers face, the Government has now provided them with the option to reset GSTR 3b.
- Taxpayers are provided with one-time correction in their GSTR data
- Resetting GSTR 3b is not possible once the form has been filed.
When a taxpayer resets his GSTR 3B, the filings status of the form changes from “Submitted” to “Yet to be filed”. The facility also deletes all the entries posted in the electronic liability registers and reverses the ITC integrated with the electronic credit ledger.
