Due Date of GSTR-3B Comes Very Quickly Every Month
For Tax Professionals & Industry it is time again to deposit GST and File GSTR-3B for Month of August’17. 
In our View, since GSTR-3B does not help identify state wise revenue nor it links GSTN Credit to Registered Customer it is a Compliance which can be made filable without late fees till december. 
Note that while filing GSTR-3B, statewise revenue bifurcation is to be filed only in case of Unregistered Dealer Outward Supplies.
Meanwhile the tax payers can continue to pay GST every month as per timelines prescribed, delay in which always attracts Interest/ Penalties.
