The GSTN is set to roll-out new GST return forms in the upcoming months. Under the new format, Form GST RET-1 will replace GSTR-1 and GSTR-3B return. Form GST RET-1 will contain two annexures namely ANX-1 and ANX-2 which will contain details of sales and purchases.

RET-1 Form Due Date
Form GST RET-1 can be filed either monthly or quarterly by the small taxpayers with annual turnover up to Rs.5 crores. Hence, most taxpayers having a turnover of up to Rs.5 crores will be filing the GST returns every quarter.
