Post our understanding of all the GST process up till now, I idea of the overall culmination of all these lead to the creation and growth of GSTR9.
GSTR 9 is the annual return. It is a compilation return which includes all business transactions done for the particular Financial Year. GSTR-9 consists of details about the supplies made and received during the year under different tax heads i.e., CGST, SGST, and IGST. It consolidates the information furnished in the monthly/quarterly returns during the particular year.
