What is GSTR 10?
GSTR 10 is a return to be filed by taxpayers whose GST Registration has either been surrendered by the taxpayer or has been canceled by authorities. The return is also called as Final Return, which is different from Annual Return. Annual return is the return to be filed every year in accordance with the quarterly returns filed by taxpayers throughout the Financial Year.

Final Return vs Annual Return
It is easy to sometimes confuse Annual returns and Final returns. There is a clear distinction laid out between the two by CBIC(Central Board of Indirect Taxation).
Accordingly, the Annual return is basically GST return to be filed by regular taxpayers in accordance with form GSTR 9. Final Return is basically a return for taxpayers who have either surrendered their registration or registration has been canceled.
The penalty for Late Filing of GSTR 10
The provisions for a late filing of GSTR-10 are a bit lenient as compared to other returns. In case of a late-filing of GSTR-10, a notice is issued to the corresponding taxpayer giving them a time period of 15 days to file the return. In case taxpayers fail to comply with the 15-day extension, tax officers will pass the cancellation order and issue the amount of payable tax with interest/penalty.
