You may have received an email from GSTN on 4th August, 2020 about Aggregate turnover being more than Rs. 5 Cr during FY 2019-20.

The summary and probable explanation of the email received from GSTN is as under –

Aggregate turnover for the financial year 2019-20 has been computed by the GST system based on the returns filed in Form GSTR-3B by all registrations on the common PAN which exceeds Rs. 5 Cr. The returns of FY 2019-20 filed upto 25th July 2020 have been considered for the said computation.

1. Computation of Aggregate Turnover -

'Aggregate turnover', has been computed as per defined u/s 2(6) of the CGST Act, 2017. Same has been computed based Sum of the turnover as declared in GSTR 3B in below tables -

  • Table 3.1(a) - Outward taxable supplies (other than zero rated, nil rated and exempted)
  • Table 3.1(b) – Outward taxable supplies (zero rated)
  • Table 3.1(c) – Other Outward Taxable supplies (Nil rated, exempted); and
  • Table 3.1(e) - Non-GST Outward Supplies

Same is computed as per one of the methods-

Option 1 - Sum of the t urnover as declared in GSTR 3B filed for all tax periods for 2019-20

Option 2 - Return of a tax period which was due to be filed but has not been filed for any of the GSTINs registered on the common PAN, the turnover of that period has been estimated by way of extrapolation as under–

[(Turnover declared/ No. of GSTR-3B filed) * No. GSTR-3B liable to be filed]


Option 3 - The turnover (including extrapolated turnover) of GSTINs has been summed up at PAN level

3. Relevance/ Application of such Computation -

The above turnover will be used for certain validations in the System such as

  1. Determining due date of return filing (20th or 22nd or 24th of the subsequent month for GSTR 3B)
  2. Computation of late fee by the system
  3. Reporting interest on delayed payments based on self-assessment basis (based on recent relief announced due to outbreak of COVID -19)

If any discrepancy is found in the turnover data based on the computation, as explained above and the actual turnover, the taxpayer may file a grievance at https://selfservice.gstsystem.in for redressal.
