How to file GSTR 2 Return?

What is GSTR 2A?

GSTR-2A is auto-drafted for all taxpayers having GST registration based on the GSTR-1 return filed by all other taxpayers. For, instance, if a business named Computer Systems sold Rs.1 lakh worth of computer to a business named Excellent Education, then Computer Systems shall file GSTR 1 providing the details of the transaction to Excellent Education in GSTR-2A. Hence the taxpayer can opt-out of filing GSTR 2A as its only a return through which the Government provides information to the taxpayer. Hence, there is no due date for GSTR 2A return.

Details required to file GSTR 2 return?

The taxpayer can file the GSTR 2 return easily, as the GST Portal auto-populates majority of the information by itself in GSTR 2A return. Hence, the taxpayer must log in to the GST Portal and verify/reconcile each of the invoices mentioned on the GSTR 2A return to prepare GSTR 2 filing. In case any invoices are missing, the same can be added by the taxpayer also.
