Important GST Dates and GST Calendar 2023-24

The GST is a dynamic system of taxes, and the government continuously updates the laws and policies governing it. Therefore, it’s critical to keep current in order to properly submit your returns. The government has been working to innovate and automate processes, and it has established tools for filing GST returns online through the Goods and Service Tax Network (GSTN) on the government’s GST portal. Every individual with a valid GSTIN who is registered for GST is required to submit all of the GST Returns that apply to their company. Even if there are no commercial transactions, submit your GST returns

The Goods and Services Tax (GST) will ultimately foster long-term economic growth, and effectiveness is unaffected by business models, operating procedures, geographic location, or organizational layout. Every business organization that has an annual aggregate income or turnover of above Rs. 5 crore is obliged to register for GST and file monthly returns in addition to a yearly return. The government has established a number of GST return filing dates and GST due dates in order to ensure that taxpayers adhere to the GST laws1. Here is a calendar of GST filing dates for India for the years 2023- 2024, along with certain key GST dates.
