GSTR-3B is a simple return form introduced by the CBEC after the rollout of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) from July 1. It is meant to capture details of outward and inward supplies.

The CBEC has already notified the date for filing of return for the months of January, February and March.

It is mandatory for all entities registered for the GST to file Form GSTR-3B.
