“valid return” means a return furnished under sub-section (1) of section 39 on which self-assessed tax has been paid in full;Priya MadrechaModeratorMay 23, 2017 at 11:34 AMPost count: 280Topics: 4

The term ‘valid return’ is attributable only to the monthly return in Form GSTR-3, to be filed by every registered person (except a composition supplier, non-resident taxable person, ISD, person liable to deduct tax at source and person liable to collect tax at source). The return will be treated as a valid return only where the tax liability determined in the return is fully remitted.
The following aspects need to be noted:
- The law mandates that the liability determined in the returns of previous months must be discharged prior to discharging the liability determined in the returns of current month;
- Input tax credit will become available to the recipient only if the return furnished by the supplier is a ‘valid return’.
