Penalty for Late Filing GST Return

Failure to file GST returns on time to can lead to penalties and cancellation of GST registration. If GST return is continuously not submitted for six months, then the GST registration would be cancelled, and the person would not be able to obtain another GST registration – unless the entire late filing penalty is paid.
The penalty for late filing GST return is different for persons having NIL return and persons having a turnover. In case a person has no business, NIL GST return must be filed. Failure to file NIL GST return can lead to a penalty of Rs.20 per day for each of the GSTR-3B return and GSTR-1 return. So, failure to file NIL GST return can result in a penalty of Rs.40 per day or Rs.1200 per month.
In case a person has business activity during the period for which GST return is late-filed, then a penalty of Rs.50 per day will be applicable for late GSTR-3B return and Rs.50 per for GSTR-1 return. Hence, a penalty of more than Rs.3000 per month would be applicable.
In addition to the above late filing fees, the person would also have to pay interest at the rate of 18% on GST payment remitted late to the Government.
