The council also approved the proposal to allow quarterly return filing for taxpayers with a turnover of upto Rs 5 crore, a move that will benefit almost 93 percent of tax assessees as they would now be required to file returns only once in three months. The minister added that return forms would be simplified into different formats for composite dealers, business-to-business dealers and business-to-consumer dealers.

"The decisions will benefit 125 crore citizens, particularly low and middle income families, traders and artisans", the finance minister said. The charge is applicable on a registered dealer, if he buys goods from a dealer not registered under GST. "Glad that finally GST Council has made this happen".
