As GST is new procedure for the users in India. It will take time for taxable persons to grasp in GST and apply it in their businesses. So the GSTR 3B Form is introduced for the first two month i.e. July & August 2017 from the applicability of GST in India.
As the last date to file the different returns i.e. GSTR 1, GSTR 2 and GSTR 3 under GST was round the corner but the businesses were not yet ready to file these returns within due date. They need time to go through the related forms properly and also the procedure how to file these forms electronically. If they will not fill the returns in time, the interest and penalty will be levied on them. So, the Government has understood this problem of users and gave some relaxation to them. The due date for the month of July and August 2017 has been extended for these returns, so that the users get time to understand the formats and procedure for these returns. Meanwhile, the users will have to file GSTR 3B FORM for the month of July to Dec’ 17 only.
Now, the Government again extended the due date of filing form GSTR-1, GSTR-2 & GSTR-3 for the month of July and August 2017, and also extend the time period of filing form GSTR-3B upto December 2017.
The due date/last date of filing form GSTR-3B for the month of August to December 2017 are as follows:

|4||November 2017||20th December 2017|
