The Quarterly Return Filing and Monthly Payment of Taxes (QRMP) Scheme was introduced by the CBIC from 1st January 2021, to help small taxpayers by way of reducing their compliance burden. The article covers the process of tax payment to be made for the first two months of the quarter by these taxpayers filing quarterly GSTR-3B.
Due Dates under QRMP Scheme
The Invoice Furnishing Facility (IFF) allows small taxpayers to upload their invoices every month. An enrolled person is needed to provide the information on who is choosing for the policy of the outward supply for Form GSTR-1 quarterly according to rule 59 of the CGST act.

He might consider it mandatory from the first day of the following month till the 13th day of the upcoming months.
The IFF can not be filed after Due Date (13th of Next Month) and that invoices to be reported in Next IFF/GSTR-1 as the case may be. IFF can not be filed after Due Date so no question of late fee there. IFF Contain data related to B2B Invoices and B2B Credit/Debit Notes only

Businesses with sales of up to Rs.5 crore have an option to file quarterly returns under the QRMP scheme and are due by 13th of the month following the relevant quarter. If GSTR-1 is filed after specified due date then invoices reported in that GSTR-1 will be reflacted in Next Month’s GSTR-2B of Counter party.
