Last date for filing GSTR-1 for July 2017 to Sep 2018 extended till Oct 31
The Finance Ministry Monday extended the last date for filing final sales return GSTR-1 for July 2017 to September 2018 period till October 31 and also waived the late fee for the delayed filing of returns. It said that the number of taxpayers who have filed summary sales return GSTR-3B is substantially higher than the number of taxpayers who furnished GSTR-1. "In order to encourage taxpayers to furnish Form GSTR-1, a one-time scheme to waive late fee payable for delayed furnishing of GSTR-1 for the period from July 2017 to September 2018 till October 31, 2018, has been launched," the ministry said.
