Comparison Between QRMP Scheme

& GSTR 3B Monthly


There is a dilemma for every taxpayer while they furnish their Goods and Services Tax returns whether to opt for QRMP Scheme or the GSTR 3B monthly system. Like in the income tax, the government has introduced New Tax Slab Regime with lower tax rates and it is up to the taxpayer to choose between the old and new tax slab regime. At present, in GST too, a registered taxpayer with a turnover up to 5 crores has a choice to opt for GST filing monthly or quarterly.


On whom the QRMP Policy is to be executed?


As per the notification 84/2020, central tax dated 10.11.2020, the turnover of 5 crores in the previous year will have these choices:

  • Monthly GSTR 1 and GSTR 3B.
  • New QRMPscheme


What does it mean by the latest QRMP policy?


QRMP scheme means Quarterly Return Monthly Scheme (QRMP) where a taxpayer should file GSTR 1 and GSTR 3B on Quarterly Basis and to Deposit Tax Monthly Basis (PMT 06) in addition to the option of submitting the invoices to registered taxpayers on monthly basis (IFF) is taxpayer’s disposal.

towards the small taxpayers


As per new the QRMP scheme, at present GSTR1 and GSTR3B should be filed on a quarterly basis only except there is a choice to provide invoices on monthly basis in addition to making changes in such invoices on monthly basis., is not compulsory. Besides, taxpayers have to make a monthly GST payment under challan PMT 06 based on self-assessment or a minimum 35 % total tax liability to avoid interest liability in accordance with the provision of the act. , moreover, the turnover has been increased to 5 crores.

According to the old scheme of Quarterly filing of GSTR 1 and Monthly GSTR 3B, there was a problem that small taxpayers with a turnover up to 1.50 crore who chooses Quarterly filing scheme for such sales made to them since they were not being shown in GSTR 2A and 2B of the mentioned taxpayers on monthly basis and thus they were going out of the business due to this reason that the people buying goods or services from such persons, unable to get GST input in GSTR 3B due to the introduction Rule 36 (4).
