Every GST registered taxpayer who opts to pay tax under the Composition Scheme has to intimate the same to the Government in FORM GST CMP-01 or FORM GST CMP-02. CMP-01 was for the migrated taxpayers who wanted to opt for the Composition Scheme. Other taxpayers who wish to be taxed under the Composition scheme (for a financial year or during the middle of a financial year) have to inform the government about their choice by filing FORM GST CMP-02.

Points To Note

- For the financial year 2020-21, taxpayers can electronically file a signed and verified (through EVC) intimation in Form GST CMP-02 on the common portal, either directly or through a Facilitation Centre.
- After the Form GST CMP-02 is filed, the taxpayer has to file Form GST CMP-03 (stock statement) within 90 days. Read more about CMP-03 here.
