To make GST compliance easier for the taxpayer Central Government has amended Central Goods & Services Tax Rules, 2017. In Rule 67A following rule is substituted:-

“67A. Manner of furnishing of return or details of outward supplies by short messaging service facility.- Notwithstanding anything contained in this Chapter, for a registered person who is required to furnish a Nil return under section 39 in FORM GSTR-3B or a Nil details of outward supplies under section 37 in FORM GSTR-1 for a tax period, any reference to electronic furnishing shall include furnishing of the said return or the details of outward supplies through a short messaging service using the registered mobile number and the said return or the details of outward supplies shall be verified by a registered mobile number based One Time Password facility.

Base on the above rule, all the NIL return in relation to GSTR 3B & GSTR 1 can also be filed through short messaging service ( SMS). Nil return here means there is no entries to be entered in any table of GSTR 3B & GSTR 1. For example, if you are having no revenue for a particular month in GSTR 3B, but have incurred expenses (regular expenses like telephone bills etc.) for which ITC is to be entered, in this case all the tables of GSTR 3B is not NIL, therefore we cannot file return through SMS.
