I have wrongly entered interest amount even though it wasn't liable. Now the balance liability (11348) is double the amount that I ought to pay orginally(5640). How can I rectify this mistake???. Does I need to pay only 5640 and then correct it at later stage or 11348. Please clear this as last date is due for it.

Let me put the above comments on question as an answer.

You can not make any modification, once return is submitted. It may be noted that providing correct details in GSTR-1 and GSTR-3 will solve your issues. But again the unutilised credit will sit in your credit ledger instead of cash ledger.

Pulkit made a wonderful file you should download and try filing return using it. It is a test file to check your liability before filing GSTR-3B return.

Many of us have already filed or are preparing for the return to meet the deadline. Since this is the first time, taxpayers are filing returns under GST, and hence mistakes are bound to happen.

Taxpayers who have already filed the GSTR return are looking for the option to correct the mistake already committed during the initial preparation of the GST return. However, they are not able to find any link or button on the GST website, where they can change or amend the GSTR – 3B return.

Hence, to provide the solution in this regard, we have written this article for you so that you can understand how you can change the details submitted in GSTR 3B online.


How to correct details in GSTR 3B

To know how to edit or change the details in GSTR 3B, you need to first understand the concept behind the introduction of GSTR 3B. GSTR 3B is only a provisional return and that has been released by the government to collect the tax revenues and also to get the system implemented smoothly.

Hence, any data filed in GSTR 3B is only provisional and not final.


Route any change through GSTR 1, 2 and 3 return

To make any change in the data filed in GSTR 3B you need to file the GST 1, 2 and 3 accordingly in the month of September and your data filed in GSTR 3B shall automatically stand amended.

In other words, to make any change in GSTR 3B is to be routed through GST 1, 2 and 3 which is due to be filed in the month of September.

Hence, if you have filed the GSTR 3B wrongly, then don’t panic, you can revise the data and correct your mistakes when you file the GSTR 3B.


When GST 1, 2 and 3 are to be filed for the month of July?

All the three returns are to be filed at the regular intervals. Here are the timelines for the all the three returns which are to be filed in the month of September:

  • GSTR 1 for the month of July is to be filed from 1st to 5th September.
  • GSTR 2 for the month of July is to be filed from 6th to 10th September.
  • GSTR 3 for the month of July is to be filed from 11th to 15th September.
