Understanding GSTR:
GSTR is a document that contains details of all inward and outward supplies made by a taxpayer during a specific period. It is a crucial component of GST compliance and plays a vital role in the transparent and efficient functioning of the tax system.

Different Types of GSTR:
GSTR-1: Outward Supplies Return:

Filed by regular taxpayers to report details of outward supplies (sales) made during a specific period.
Contains information about sales, exports, and supplies to consumers.
Filed monthly or quarterly, depending on the taxpayer’s turnover.

GSTR-2A: Auto-Drafted Inward Supplies:

Auto-generated statement that reflects details of inward supplies as per the records of the suppliers.
Provides a reference for taxpayers to verify and reconcile their own purchase records.

GSTR-2: Inward Supplies Return:
