GSTR 4 is a form that approved taxpayers who have signed up for the composition scheme must submit a return once every three months. They are also called composition vendors. The GSTR-4 provides the overall number of sales and services made, the tax charged at the compounding rate, and invoice-level descriptions of transactions made by the composition seller by other licenced taxpayers within the taxable period. Once any registered individual buys from a licenced retailer, the details from their sales returns (GSTR-1) would be accessible in the GSTN portal as GSTR-4A which can be used in your GSTR-4. Before filing your return, you can double-check this data, make adjustments if needed, and include any info which was not auto-populated.
GSTR 4 Due Date
The GSTR-4 must be filed by the 18th of the month after the close of the quarter. For instance, if you are submitting the GSTR-4 for the August-November portion, you must do so by December 18.
Requirement for filing GSTR-4
- You must be a certified taxpayer and a GST composition vendor.
- Your company’s aggregate turnover must be less than ₹75 lakh.
- You can only participate in intrastate trade.
- You must maintain a list of all purchases and imports rendered during the year.
