Some Pratical problems:
Other than above, there are some input tax credit which anyone cannot be allowed to set off against output GST payable.
Example-1: If the dealer of Maharashtra purchase some item from Gujrat and Gujrat dealer has charged the GST as intrastate purchase because of place of supply. Can Maharashtra dealer is able to take credit of transaction?
Ans: No, Maharashtra dealer cannot be able to take credit of such transaction, because Gujrat dealer has charged Gujrat GST & CGST on such transaction and Maharashtra dealer can take credit only of Maharashtra GST & GST and IGST only.
Even though, on the bill of purchase it is mentioned SGST & CGST but Maharashtra dealer cannot avail the credit because such credit pertains to Gujrat Government and not to Maharashtra Government.
Example-2: If Maharashtra dealer has availed the service of immovable property which is situated at Delhi and service provider is also located at Delhi. Whether GST on such transaction is eligible?
Ans: According to place of supply rule, Delhi dealer will charged the Delhi GST and CGST. And again Maharashtra dealer is unable to take the credit of such transaction.
So before taking or claiming the claim under GST, one must understand that whether GST charged on such transaction is eligible for credit? And then only take the credit. If anyone avail wrong credit then its reversal is necessary along with interest.
