GSTR 7 Due Date For September 2023 (TDS Deductor)

GSTR 7 Due Dates

GSTR 7 is a return form under GST for all the taxpayers who account for all the tax deducted at the source. The GSTR 7 due date is the 10th of every next month in a particular tax period.

Those that deduct tax at source or TDS under the Goods and Services Tax must submit a GSTR-7 monthly return (GST). By the 10th of the next month, every GST-registered person who deducts TDS under GST must submit Form GSTR-7. Details on TDS deducted, TDS payable, TDS refund, etc. are included in the form.

What Do you mean by the Term GSTR 7?

Section 51 of the Central Goods and Services Tax (CGST) Act requires some individuals or entities to deduct tax at source under the GST regime. GSTR 7 is a monthly return that these persons are expected to file. Each month, the form must be filed by the 10th of the following month.

The information on GSTR 7 includes the amount of TDS deducted, the amount of TDS paid and due, and any TDS refund sought. The GSTR 7 return can be filed both online and offline.

What is the Importance of GSTR-7?

GSTR-7 specifies the TDS deducted, the amount of TDS paid and due, and any TDS refund sought. TDS can be claimed as an Input Tax Credit (ITC) by the deductee (the person whose name TDS has been deducted) and used to settle the output tax liability.

After the due date for submitting Form GSTR-7, the details of the TDS deducted are available electronically to each deductee in PART ‘C’ of Form GSTR-2A. In addition, the certificate for such TDS deducted will be accessible in Form GSTR-7A based on the GSTR-7 return.

Conditions for Filing GSTR 7

A few fundamental requirements must be satisfied before filing the GSTR 7 return. Have a look at them down below.

Under the GST regime, you must be a registered taxpayer.

A valid 15-digit GSTIN is required.

Your total company revenue should exceed Rs. 20 lakhs.

You must keep track of all transactions in which you deduct and pay taxes on behalf of your vendors.

Who Can Deduct TDS under GST?

The below-specified individuals/entities can deduct TDS under the GST law-

  • A department or establishment of the Central or state government
  • A local authority
  • Governmental agencies
  • Individuals or categories of persons may be notified by the Central or state government on the suggestions of the Council.

According to Notification No. 33/2017 – Central Tax, 15th September 2017, the below-specified entities can also deduct TDS:

  • An authority, a board, or any other body set up by the Parliament, a State Legislature, or a government with 51% equity (control) owned via the government
  • Under the Societies Registration Act, of 1860, a society established by the Central or any state government or a local authority and the society registered
  • Public sector undertakings

The aforesaid deductors should deduct TDS in which the total supply value beneath the contract is more than Rs 2.5 lakh. In the case of intrastate supply, the TDS rate stands at 2% (CGST 1% + SGST 1%) while for interstate supplies it is 2% (IGST). TDS will not be deducted, however, if the supplier’s location and place of supply differ from the recipient’s registration place (state).

What Information is Needed in GSTR-7?

GSTR-7 is divided into eight parts, which are detailed further below.

1. Furnish GSTIN: A state-wise PAN-based 15-digit Goods and Services Taxpayer Identification Number (GSTIN) would get allotted to each assessee. During the time of filing the return the GSTIN of the assessee shall be auto-populated. 

2. Legal name of the deductor: The name of the assessee shall get auto-populated at the time of logging into the common GST portal. Moreover, any registered person’s trade name will be auto-populated if any.

3. Tax deducted at source information: You are obligated to specify the information of TDS deducted like GSTIN of the deductee, total amount, and TDS amount (central/state/integrated).

4. Revisions to details of TDS for any earlier tax period: Any corrections to the data supplied in prior months’ returns can be made here by filling out the original and changed details. The TDS certificate (GSTR-7A) will be changed as a result of this adjustment.

5. Tax deduction at source and paid: In this, you are required to specify the tax (integrated/central/state) amount deducted from the deductee and the tax (integrated/central/state) amount paid to the government.

6. Interest, late fee payable, and paid: When there would be any interest or late fees subjected to be applied on the TDS amount you should specify the information of these interest and late fees liable to be paid including the amount that has been paid to date. 

7. Refund claimed from electronic cash ledger: You must include these facts in this area if you wish to get a TDS refund from your electronic cash ledger. Moreover, you must include the bank account details to which the TDS refund should be credited.

8. Debit entries in the electronic cash ledger for TDS/interest payment [to be populated after payment of tax and submissions of return]: Once you have completed filling out the return and paying the TDS and, if applicable, interest, the entries in the section are automatically filled in.

Once all the information is provided accurately, the taxpayer must sign a statement attesting to the accuracy of the data. A Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) or an Electronic Verification Code (EVC) can be used by the deductor to verify the authenticity of the return.
