4 New Recent Updates in GST
1. Interest in GSTR3B
This functionality is introduced to reduce the compliance burden and improve the ease of filing GST returns for taxpayers. This facility will assist taxpayers in self -assessment for interest calculation as the GST portal will now provide system computed interest in GSTR3B. The liability on interest for the present period shall be computed only on the portion of liability paid by debiting the electronic cash ledger. Once you file GSTR3B for the current period the system will compute the interest. This computed interest will work on similar lines as that of computation of late fees on the GST portal and will reflect in GSTR3B for the next period.
