• Return filing


I own a hotel in Himachal Pradesh and am filing GST return for the first time. My sales are only through online portals like Booking.com, Go ibibo etc. While uploading invoice under B2C category, the only tab that is visible is other than ecommerce.
Does my business come under other than e-commerce? Or am I filing the incorrect form.
I was filing GSTR1 form

Also, please advice if invoices for sales which are non taxable, like hotel accomodation below INR 999 needs to be uploaded too or not.

Sorry for wrong interpretation from my side. Your business is not under coming under e-commerce. You are just selling through E Commerce.

so, in such cases pl note:

a) If you have GSTN number of your buyer, then put it under b2b

b) I you dont have GSTN number of your buyer, then it will be under b2c..

Hope this will suffice your purpose. Feel free to contact in case you require any further clarification.
