Visakhapatnam: The Central Goods and Service Tax (CGST) Commissionerate informed all the taxpayers that the government has provided the facility of filing nil returns of GSTR-1 through a simple SMS from the first week of July.

It may be noted that the facility to file nil monthly GSTR-3B return through SMS has already been made available since June 8.

To initiate the SMS facility, the taxpayers who wish to file a nil statement in their form GSTR-1 are requested to send SMS to 14409 as NILR1GSTIN numberTax period (in MMYYYY) format.

The users will get a six-digit code with validity up to 30 minutes and can confirm their nil statement filing by sending: CNFR1CODE to 14409.

On successful code validation, return will be filed and taxpayers will be receiving an acknowledgement number via an SMS.

Following similar steps, taxpayers can file their nil return in form GSTR-3B. However, they need to use 3B instead of R1 in their SMS to 14409. For further details, one may visit 'help' by logging on to: www.gst.gov.in.
