QRMP stands for Quarterly Return filing & Monthly Payment of Taxes and pertains to payment of Goods and Service Tax. It is a scheme recently launched by the Government of India. The aim of the scheme is to bring small taxpayers into the GST system.

Taxpayers who gave an aggregate turnover of Rs 5 crore and have filed their October GST return by 30th November are eligible for this scheme. If the turnover of the taxpayer exceeds Rs 5 crore in any quarter of the fiscal year then the person will not be eligible for the scheme.

Key Points

  • In this scheme, taxpayers with an aggregate turnover of Rs.5.00 crore for the last financial year, can file GST returns on a quarterly basis.
  • But, the payment of GST has to be made on a monthly basis by such business enterprises. This scheme would come into force from 01.01.2021.
  • The payment can be done through challans by self-assessment of the liability or by paying 35% of the net cash liability of the previous quarter.
  • The quarterly GST returns can also be filed through an SMS.
  • This decision has been made during the GST council meeting that took place during the months of October.
  • This is expected to reduce the burden of GST filing by small traders and enhance the ease of doing business in the country.
