Updates on GST Portal
In recent few months on GST portal, many new features have been updated to help taxpayers while transacting through GSTN for return filing & reconciliation between two returns etc. These updates are as follows
Comparison of liability declared and input tax credit claimed
It helps taxpayer in comparing their GSTR-3B tax liabilities with the GSTR-1 that have been filed. Here taxpayer can also compare their input tax credit claimed in the GSTR-3B with the credit available in GSTR-2A.
TDS and TCS Credit received
Auto-population of TDS and TCS credit received from counterparties who filed their GSTR 7 and GSTR 8 in GSTR 2X form named as “TDS and TCS credit received” on GST Portal has been introduced. Here taxpayer can take accept or reject action on such TDS and TCS received. On accepting TDS and TCS credit will get credited to Cash ledger of taxpayer. .
File GSTR 9 and GSTR 9A
Facility to file annual return by normal taxpayers in Form GSTR 9 and by composite dealer in Form GSTR 9A is now available on GST Portal.
Monthly Refund applications by Quarterly GSTR-1 filer
GSTN has now removed the restriction for applying return on quarterly basis for Quarterly GSTR 1 filers. So now Quarterly GSTR 1 filer can apply for refund on monthly basis.
A taxpayer’s GSTIN can be entered while filing a refund application
Due to the inverted duty structure under GST, a refund application can be filed by a registered taxpayer for accumulated ITC. The portal has enabled the entry of a taxpayer’s own GSTIN in the inward supply detail statement, while filing the same on the GST portal.
Revocation of cancellation of Registration
Facility for applying for revocation of suo-moto cancellation of registration for the persons registered as OIDAR /TDS/TCS/ NRTP category has been enabled on GST Portal.
List of Preferred Banks list while making Payment
Every time a taxpayer makes GST payments using a Bank, it will be updated in the Preferred Banks list. Up to 6 Preferred Banks will be shown to a taxpayer while making E-Payment on GST Portal.
Curious Case of GSTR 2X
What is GSTR 2X?
GSTR 2X is an autopopulated return form that needs to be filed by a taxpayer who wants to claim for TDS and TCS credit received. The data received is auto-populated from his counterparty who files GSTR 7 and GSTR 8 i.e. TDS deductor and Tax collector. This return can be filed by all the taxpayers who are making specified sales on the e-commerce platforms and/or entered into any kind of works contract with Government departments who deduct taxes.
Why Should one file GSTR 2X?
A taxpayer should file GSTR 2X to avail GST TDS/TCS deducted by the deductors/collectors. The deducted amount will appear in Cash Ledger which can be used for payment of balance amount of tax after setting off with the Input tax credit.
Due date for GSTR 2X
There is no due date or late filing fee for GSTR 2X. Although, it can be filed only once a month and only via the online platform. Also,you may file GSTR 2X Form before the filing of Form GSTR-1/GSTR-3B.
Actions available under GSTR 2X.
There are two actions allowed to be taken under GSTR 2X. First action is “accept” and second action is “reject”.
Once you accepted data, TDS/TCS credit will get credited to your cash ledger and you can utilise this credit while setting off your tax liabilities.
Once you rejected data, this data will get reflected to your counterparty in their next month GSTR 7/GSTR 8 form under amendment section.
It is very important for the deductee to cross check these details with his records or bills raised and accordingly accept/reject the record. Once GSTR 2X is filed then you cannot undo the action (i.e. accept to reject or reject to accept).
You cannot file the GSTR2X form without taking action on all the auto-populated records in all tables.
There have been several announcements with this regard to EWay bill system, we bring a compendium of the same for your easy assimilation:
Auto-calculation of Distance
E-way bill system will soon be able to auto calculate the distance for movement of goods based on the postal PIN codes of source and destination locations. User is allowed to enter the actual distance as per his movement of goods. However, it will allow a variation of only 10%.
Monitoring of Multiple Trips on Single EWay Bill
It has come to the notice of tax officers that some transporters are doing multiple trips by generating only a single e-way bill or not reflecting e-way bill invoices while filing sales return. For such cases, the tax authorities have started seeking ‘clarification’ from the taxpayers.
Tallying GSTR 1 with EWay Bills
Recently, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) authorities have started tallying the two sets of data received by GSTN : GST return filings and e-way bills. These are matched with the summary reconciliation statements of estimated tax liability, thereby, forcing businesses to explain discrepancies such as under-reporting distances.
Hyderabad, Apr 23 In a move that would have a significant impact on businesses that use tax credits available on inputs and raw materials to reduce payment in cash, the Telangana High Court has ruled that no input tax credit (ITC) is available unless GST returns are filed and a taxpayer is liable to pay penalty on the entire liability.
FILING OF RETURNS:
Under Section 39, a detailed procedure is stipulated for the filing of the monthly returns. Every registered person should furnish for every Calendar Month or part thereof, a return, electronically, of inward and outward supplies of goods or services, ITC availed, tax payable, tax paid etc., on or before the 20th day of the succeeding calendar month;
CLAIM OF ITC:
Sub-section (2) of Section 16 lays down four conditions subject to which a registered person will be entitled to the credit of any input tax.These conditions are
