“Last minute GST filing website crashed” What to do?

  • Mostly people files return at the last 4-5 hours, System is tend to crash as no system can handle that much of load.
  • At this moment, the concurrency of GSTN portal is 1.5 lakh.
  • Concurrency, here, means the number of users who can file return at any given point of time.
  • Frequent technical problems in the GSTN website has been a big cause of inconvenience for businesses.
  • Last minute return filings and other compliances continue to get affected due to technical issues.
  • Taxpayers have complained that every month, GSTN website stops working for hours during last two days of filing returns.
  • Last minute rush of return filing often lead to crashing of its portal.
  • This time, GST Network (GSTN) has come up with a few ideas under the new return filing system to be implemented from the next financial year.
  • Under the new system, return filings will be done in a steady manner.
  • For big taxpayers ( i.e. annual turnover of ₹ 5 crore or more), the last day for filing returns will be 20th of every month.
  • For small taxpayers with annual turnover of less than ₹ 5 crore, the due date will be 25th of every month.
  • Under the new scheme, those who report “NIL” turnover can file their return by just sending an SMS.They don’t need to come to the portal.
  • Under GST, every registered person or business has to file returns even if there’s no business done.
  • Small taxpayer can opt for quarterly returns.
  • Under the new return filing system, small taxpayer can simply go for “SAHAJa two-table form.
  • In the replacement of existing system, there will be only one due date in a month.
  • There are no separate filings for GSTR-1, GSTR-2A, etc.
  • Under existing system , the due date for GSTR-1 was 11th, GSTR-2A was 15th, and GSTR-3B was 20th of every month.
  • But under the new system, when assessee files RET (equivalent of GSTR-3B under the new system), the Annexure-1 (GSTR-1 equivalent) and Annexure-2 (GSTR-2A equivalent) are deemed to have been filed.
  • There are no separate filings of Annexure-1 and Annexure-2 under the new system.
  • The pressure of multiple filing return will not be faced by assessee.
