Summary of the new functionalities on GSTN
A major and welcome change in GSTN in the matter of filing monthly returns in GSTR-3B. From this morning a welcome message is being shown in the returns dash board. Go through it. There are several userfriendly elements in filing the return. While entering CGST and SGST in OPT and ITC tables, the amounts of SGST are autopopulated to the value of CGST entered. While setting-off the liabilities, the page shows the actual ITC available, cash available on that date which can be verified by you. As mentioned in the welcome note, the adjustment of ITC is only provisional and you can make changes. In respect of ITC under IGST you have to correctly enter the values of adjustment under CGST/SGST. Now you can easily set-off the liabilities and proceed to file the return. Most important thing of admiration in GSTN now is the fact that you can download the filed copy of the return (even in cash paid cases) and save a hardcopy of the monthly return.
AND you can also download the GSTR-3B returns for previous months also. In the return dash board select the month from July onwards, when the file return page opens click “download filed return” at the bottom and it works!!! Now you can download the return and save as a hardcopy.
