  6. Suppliers of online information and database access or retrieval services, who have to pay tax themselves (as per section 14 of the IGST Act)

Late Fees and Penalty

GSTR-1 is not a tax filing form but GSTR-1 has a due date by which it needs to be filed. If you do not submit GSTR-1 before the due date you will need to pay a penalty of amount Rs 50 or Rs 20 per day. If you have nil returns to file and you filed your GSTR-1 after the due date then you have to pay the penalty of Rs 20 per day.
