What is a GST return?
Your GST return will include information on all of your sales, purchases, tax collected on sales (output tax), and tax paid on purchases (input tax). After submitting GST returns, you must pay the additional tax obligation (money that you owe the government).
Who is required to file a GST return?
All owners and dealers who have registered under the GST system are obliged to file GST returns depending on the nature of their business or transactions.
