As per the GST laws, late fee is an amount charged for delay in filing the GST returns. A prescribed late fees will be charged for each day of delay, when a GST registered business misses filing GST returns within the prescribed due dates*.

The late fee should be paid in cash and the taxpayer cannot use the Input Tax Credit (ITC) available in electronic credit ledger for payment of late fee.

The late fee is also applicable for the delay in filing nil returns. For example, one has to pay a late fee even though there are no sales or purchases and no GST liability to declare in the GSTR-3B.

The late fee will depend upon the number of days of delay from the due date. GST return in GSTR-3B is filed on 23rd January 2021, 3 days after the prescribed due date i.e 20th January 2021. The late fees will be calculated for three days and it should be deposited in cash.

However, currently, the GST portal is aligned to charge a late fee only on returns GSTR-3B, GSTR-4, GSTR-5, GSTR-5A, GSTR-6, GSTR-8, GSTR-7 and GSTR-9 only.
