Issues

1. As per Section 16(2)[c] – for claiming ITC the tax charged in respect of such supplyhas been actually paid to the Government,- How a person who is claiming can get this information ? Just 3B return filed does not give authentication that vendor has deposited tax with Government.

2. As per Section 16(4) last date to claim ITC is furnishing of the return under section 39 for the month of September following the end of financial year to which such invoice or invoice relating to such debit note pertains or furnishing of the relevant annual return, whichever is earlier. So for financial year 2017-18 last date for September Month Return filling is 20.10.18 – How a person can know about missed ITC without finalization of audited accounts.

For claiming ITC Reconciliation with GSTR 2A is important aspects – As we know GSTR 2A extract data from GSTR 1 filed by supplier . as Due date to file GSTR 1 is Dec 18 ( Newly Migrated Assessee )and 31-10-18 for other Regular assess – we will not get Correct 2A so we wecan not our missing ITC ?

3. Filling of GSTR 1 including Amendment for 17-18 due date is 31.10.18 and submission of Audited financials are also 31-10-18 so how both can be closed on same day as GSTR 1 need to filed along with Reconciliation from Audited financials.

4. System does not allow us to make amendment any time it need to be done alongwith Due GSTR 1- which restricts us to file amendment in GSTR 1.

 

Remedy-

 

  1. Please remove condition of payment of taxes to government by vendor to claim ITC by recipient
  2. Allow availmentof ITC till filling of Annual Return.
  3. Please allow amendment in GSTR 1 anytime not linked with SubseqentReturn .
  4. Please allow amendment even after submission of annual Return as GSTR 1 is just a annexure to Monthly Return ( B To B Amendment , B To C amendment or C To B amendment ) with no additional Tax liability.
