According to the new GST regime in India, a regular business owner has to file for three monthly returns as well as one annual return. Therefore it leads to amounts to a total of 37 returns in one single year. When filing for GST return online, a person has to enter the details manually for only one monthly return, i.e. GSTR 1. The details for the other two remaining returns, GSTR 2 and 3 are going to get auto-filled based on the information that has been presented for the GSTR 1 by the business owner and additional vendors. There are also separate returns that are needed to be filed appropriately by various special cases like composition dealers.
