  7. Dear Sir,
    While filing GST 1 quaterly return (Oct to Dec,18) of F.Y 18-19.
    We suppose to add two invoice details into B2C tab.

    Basic – 5,00,000
    CGST 9% – 45,000
    SGST 9% – 45,000
    Total – 5,90,000

    From the above two entries we have added only one invoice details i.e of Maharashtra.
    And now while filing GST 1 returns of F.Y 19-20, Q2 (July – Sept,19), there is no option of adding the invoice details of Last Year.

      If you have claimed ITC of FY 2017-18 in April’19, it is altogether incorrect as time limit of claiming ITC for FY 17-18 was upto filing of GSTR-3B of Sep 2018 or filing of annual return whichever is earlier. You can only show ITC of FY 2017-18 claimed upto Sep 2018 in GSTR-9.

  10. Dear Sir,

    While filing GST 9 Annual Returns of F.Y 17-18, we came cross Table 15 (Demands & Refunds).
    During 17-18, we have paid IGST on export of services and then we have claimed refund from the Government.
    In the whole F.Y 17-18 (July, 17 to March,18), we have paid IGST of Rs 2,00,000/-
    Bifurcation of above IGST Rs 2,00,000/- we have paid.
    August ,17 – 19000
    September ,17 – 31000
    December, 17 – 50,000
    February, 18 – 1,00,000

    In December, 17, the processed for claiming refund was started.
    So, by end of March, 18, we have claimed August and September, 17, IGST amount i.e 50,000 (19000+31000) and we got refund 90% of 50000 and 10% balance we have got in F.Y 18-19.

    Now, in GST 9 Annual Returns, Table 15, What will be the amount we have to show under Refund Claimed (Table 15 of GST9)?
    It will be Rs 2,00,000 which we have paid or the claimed amount i.e 50000?

    • CA Portal
      August 19, 2019

      Rs 200000 is to be shown under Table 15A, Rs 50000 is to be shown
      under Table 15B & the Balance amount will be shown either in Table 15C
      or 15D as the case may be

    1) How I can take credit of IGST, SGST, CGST amount, which we have paid to our supplier but unable to feed correct amount in GSTR 3 . But this GST TAX is showing in GSTR 2. How we can take benefit for the same.

    2) By Mistake we have put wrong amount in GSTR 3 in IGST, CGST, SGST column. We have feed IGST amount in CGST & SGST column (Half + Half). But total GSTR3 tax amount is matching with our GSTR2 tax amount. How to correct the same.

      1. You can take the benefit of remaining ITC in the next period as the GSTR-3B can not be revised
      2. Please specify the Question , whether you are talking about IGST liability or ITC

    Hi Sir,

    In month of January, 18, we have exported some services.
    We have paid IGST on that amount Rs 2,00,000/-.
    While filing RFD 01A (Refund Application), we have bymistakely put Rs 1,80,000/- instead of Rs 2,00,000/-.
    Please let us know how we can get refund of the balance Rs 20,000/- (200000-180000).
    As, we know that we can file RFD 01A only one time for the particular month.
    Is their any way to claim the balance amount Rs 20,000/- from the government?

    In October, 17, we have raise invoice on of our client, but IGST for that invoice was not paid in October, 17, as the payment itself was uncertain.
    So, we decided to pay IGST after the receipt of payment, by paying interest.
    The amount of IGST Rs 65,280/- for above invoice was paid in January, 18, with interest.
    However, this was not shown in GST 3B for January, 18 as we were not clear about the procedure.
    However, we have include invoice details in GST 1 of 17-18.
    For 17-18, on the GST portal the amount of Rs 65,280/- was being shown as credit at the beginning of F.Y 18-19.
    The above IGST Rs 65,280/- was included in January, 19, GST 3B in F.Y 18-19 but not included in GST 1 of F.Y 18-19.

    Now, in GST 9 Annual Return, we have included the above Rs 65,280/- in table 9 under Tax payable in GST 9.
    But we cannot edit the Paid Through Cash column.

    Can you please let me know, where the above paid IGST Rs 65,280/- to be shown in GST 9 of F.Y 17-18?

    • CA Portal
      June 26, 2019

      Since you have not included the above amount in GSTR-3B in the F.Y.2017-18, Rs.65,280 has not reflected in the cash paid column. You can try filing through offline excel utility provided by the department since the columns are editable. If the problem persists, you need to contact the department for assistance.

    We have included IGST payable under table 4(g) in GST 9 Annual return.
    Can you please let us know, where we have to show the paid IGST on import of services in GST 9 return of F.Y 17-18?

    We got our GST registration in February 2018. So in GSTR 9 do we have to show sales and purchases from only February 2018 to March 2018 or even those before February 2018?

      If your Turnover exceeds 2 cr then you have to show total sales details in 9C but if your turnover does not exceed 2 cr , you are required to file GST 9 where only turnover of those two months have to be mentioned
