Form GSTR-8 is a monthly return form to be furnished by all e-commerce operators who are required to deduct TCS (Tax Collected at Source) under GST.
Form GSTR-8 will show the details of supplies effected through the e-commerce platform and the amount of TCS collected on such supplies. Post GSTR-8 return filing, the supplier can take the input tax credit of such TCS deducted by the e-commerce operator. The amount of such TCS will be reflected in Form GSTR-2A of the supplier.
Every e-commerce operator registered under GST is required to file GSTR-8.
An e-commerce operator has been defined under the GST Act as any person who owns or manages a digital or electronic facility or platform for carrying out electronic commerce. All such e-commerce operators are mandatorily required to obtain GST registration as well as register for TCS.
The GSTR-8 due date is the 10th of the following month.
If the GSTR-8 return is not filed on time, then a penalty of INR 100 per day under CGST & INR 100 per day under SGST shall be levied i.e. a total of INR 200 per day. However, the maximum of such a penalty will be INR 5,000. There is no late fees however on IGST.
Along with late fees, an interest has to be paid at the rate of 18% per annum and will be calculated by the taxpayer on amount of outstanding tax to be paid. The time period will start from the next day of filing i.e. the 11th of the month, to the date of actual payment.
Form GSTR-8 once filed cannot be revised. Any mistake made in the return can be revised in the next month’s return, when the error or omission is identified.
GSTR-8 will contain the details of all supplies effected through e-commerce platforms and the amount of TCS collected on such supplies.
Following are the details to be provided in the GSTR-8 form, spread across 9 tables:
