GST authority introduced Composition Scheme to give relief to the small taxpayers. Composition Taxpayers need to file only one return i.e. GSTR 4 / Quarter and one annual return i.e. GSTR 9/ 9A/ 9B/ 9C.
There is no need to give details of Outward supplies (Sales) in GSTR 4, you need to enter only Total turnover in GSTR 4, upon which tax will be calculated. Till Oct-Dec quarter, FY 2017-18, there is no need to give details of Inward supplies from registered suppliers other than supplies attracting reverse charge in GSTR 4 but from Jan-Mar Quarter, FY 2017-18, Taxpayers need to give details of all inward supplies.
