Ever since the GST law was implemented on 1st July 2017, business owners repeatedly faced difficulties while filing GST returns.
GST was a huge change where all the indirect taxes were merged into one single law. So, initial hiccups were expected.
So keeping in mind all the problems businesses were facing, the government keeps extending the due dates or keeps on hold some of the return filling (FORM GSTR-2 and 3).
These are current due dates for filling GST returns. The dates given below are changed according to the government notifications. We’ll keep updating this page with changes.
