Is it necessary to file returns after VAT registration?
Hiiii friend.... Now it is compulsory to file VAT returns online. And if you are a registered VAT dealer then you need to file online return monthly or quarterly which ever is applicable to you. If the sale is nil you have file nil returns. But return filing is compulsory. And in case you do not file 3 returns continue the VAT department may cancel your Number. So to avoid this please file VAT returns and if applicable to nil return file nil return. Regards,
you'd be required to regularly file your VAT returns. Getting a registration is the 1st step; returns will have to be filed as per prescribed frequency. Since your turnover has not crossed the limit required for vat registration, i suggest you file a nil return provided you do not charge vat on the invoices raised on your customers and also do not avail input credit. Once the turnover crosses the limit,start charging vat and claim input credit. VAT Returns after registration are to be compulsorily filed even if there is no turnover, else you will be liable to pay a penalty of Rs.2000 for each late return. And it may also lead to cancellation of your TIN.
