The GSTR-1 Report is mainly about the details of the sales and outward supplies, whereas the GSTR-2 involves the Report of details of purchases. In this article, we will discuss GSTR-3B, which consists of a monthly summary of sales and purchases, which is auto-populated by pulling the source of information from GSTR-1 and GSTR-2.

When to file the GSTR-3B Report?

The GSTR-3 will show the GST liability for your company in that particular month. It must be filed before the 20th of the following month.

Who should file for the GSTR-3B Report?

Every registered person is mandatory to file GSTR-3 irrespective of whether any business transactions occur during that month.

This is exceptional for selected parties mentioned below:
