Dear Mam,

As per the provisions of GST Act, GST registration can be cancelled only after filing the GST returns up to the date of cancellation  of registration. And filing return form May 2018 till October 2020 will cost you a very huge penalty and late filing fees.


I suggest you to please apply for the cancellation online on www.gst.gov.in and after receiving any communication from the department you may clearly explain the situation to the concerned office and request them for Suo Moto cancelation.


Thanks and Regards

GST is an online based system and all the Late Fees and Penalties are paid online. Do not pay anything to anybody

If you wish to continue with this number then pay all the late fees and continue and if you want to close this number just wait for sometime and department will automatically cancel (i.e. suo moto) the no. and effective date of cancellation will most probably the back date i.e. the date from which you have not filed your returns.

Thanks & Regards

The late fees for one GSTR 3b has been capped at INR 500. So late fees penalties can't be 75k.


Further, we may advise properly only after reviewing the notice received.

Kindly contact personally for further discussions. We may assist you with closure and compliance.
