Payment of Tax by Taxpayers under QRMP Scheme, for the month of March, 2021

CBIC has introduced a Quarterly Return Filing and Monthly Payment of Taxes (QRMP) scheme intending to help small taxpayers. This scheme can be availed by taxpayers whose turnover is less than or equal to INR 5 crore in the preceding financial year. In this scheme, taxpayers file GSTR-3B quarterly and pay taxes monthly.

In case the aggregate turnover in any quarter exceeds INR 5 crore then the taxpayer will not be eligible for this scheme from the next quarter. This scheme is optional for taxpayers.

Taxpayers availing of the QRMP Scheme are required to pay the tax due, in each of the three months of the quarter, by depositing the due amount as discussed below.

Payment of Tax for first two months of a quarter (M1 & M2 i.e. for January and February month for Jan-March Quarter):

  1. While generating the challan, taxpayers must select “Monthly payment for the quarterly taxpayer” as a reason for generating the challan.
  2. They can choose either of the following two options to generate the Challan:

a. 35% Challan (Fixed Sum Method): For taxpayers opting for this method, the portal will generate a pre-filled challan in Form GST PMT-06, for an amount equal to 35% of the tax paid in cash, in the preceding quarter, if the return was furnished quarterly or equal to the tax paid in cash in the last month of the immediately preceding quarter, if the return was furnished monthly.

b. Challan on a self-assessment basis (Self-Assessment Method): These taxpayers can pay the tax due by considering the tax liability on inward and outward supplies and the input tax credit as available, in FORM GST PMT-06.

Note: The aforesaid options are not available for payment of tax for third month (M3) of the quarter to persons availing QRMP Scheme.

c. Payment of Tax for the third month of a quarter (M3 i.e. for March month for Jan-March Quarter): For the third month of the quarter (M3), taxpayers can click the button ‘Create Challan’ in Payment Table 6 of Form GSTR-3B and file GST-PMT-06 Challan, for depositing any amount towards their tax liability.
