The taxpayer is expected to file the applicable GST Returns within their due dates to ensure free flow of credit in the tax system. However, the delayed filing of GST Returns is allowed subject to the late fee. In the case of NIL GST Returns, the late fee is Rs. 20 for each day of delay, and for Non-NIL Gst returns, the late fee payable is Rs. 50 per day. There is an upper cap on the late fees to reduce the burden of recurring Late Fees on small taxpayers.
