Important Note:

In GST Council meeting held on 22nd December it has been decided to bring one-time late fee waiver scheme. The scheme provides that late fees for late filing of GSTR-3B for the months of July 2017 to September 2018 will be waived if the return is filed between 22nd December 2018 to 31st March 2019. 

The wordings of notification are “Provided further that the amount of late fee payable under section 47 of the said Act shall stand waived for the registered persons who failed to furnish the return in FORM GSTR-3B for the months of July, 2017 to September, 2018 by the due date but furnishes the said return between the period from 22nd December, 2018 to 31st March, 2019.”

The wording of the notification is clear and there is no chance of any confusion. The late fees should be payable by normal amount (Rs. 50 or Rs. 20 per day) if the return is filed on 1st April 2019 or thereafter. Late fees should also be payable for the whole time period from due date of filing to the date of actual filing. For example- The due date for filing September 2018 is 25th October 2018. If a person files return on 10th April 2019 then late fees should be payable from 26th October 2018 to 10th April 2019. 

But the GST portal is considering due date of all GSTR-3B from July 2017 to September 2018 as 31st March 2019. And therefore calculating late fees from 31st March 2019 onwards for all such returns. Late fees is calculated automatically by the GST system. So it arises a confusion among laymen as well as professionals.

This calculator is calculating late fees as per the due dates considering by the GST Portal. So you can calculate the late fees actually payable at time of filing GSTR-3B.

Late Fees Calculation

Late Fees for GSTR-3B

Late fees for GSTR-3B is Rs. 20 (Rs. 10 for CGST and Rs. 10 for SGST) per day for NIL returns and Rs. 50 (Rs. 25 for CGST and Rs. 25 for SGST) in other cases.
