Mr A had imported goods and paid IGST of Rs 100000.00. He had other ITC of Rs 50000.00. While filing GSTR-3B, he inadvertently reflected entire ITC in “All other ITC” in Column 4(A)(5) of GSTR-3B. Can he show such amount correctly in GSTR-9.

Mr A had Input Tax Credit Books of Accounts of Rs 150000.00 He Inadvertently claimed credit of Rs 1500000.00. Out of which Rs 1000000.00 was reversed till March 2018. Rs 200000.00 was reversed till September 2018 (Reversal has been made through Table 4(B)(2) of GSTR-3B.). and Balance Rs 150000.00 could not be reversed.

It would be worthwhile to mention that Figures in Table 6B would auto populated in Table 8B. This would result in incorrect preparation of Table 8. But then the form offers not solution in this respect as any other way of filing the form would result in incorrect preparation of Table 9. The handbook released by ICAI also provides as follows:

 

Sl. No. 8B: ITC as per sum total of 6(B) and 6(H)

Alternate Approach: There might be an alternative view of showing the ITC in Table 6B as Rs 150000.00 and consequently in Table 8B. (Though might not appear proper on an overall view of the form as all reversal made have to be reported in Table 7). Professional Judgement would be required to be exercised in the matter.

Situation 7: Higher Credit claimed in GSTR-3B and Part Wrong availment adjusted till March 2018, Part Adjusted till September 2018 and Part could not be adjusted till filing of Annual Return (Reversal has been made through netting off subsequent credits in Table 4(A)(5) of GSTR-3B)

 

Mr A had Input Tax Credit Books of Accounts of Rs 150000.00. He Inadvertently claimed credit of Rs 1500000.00. Out of which Rs 1000000.00 was reversed till March 2018. Rs 200000.00 was reversed till September 2018 and Balance Rs 150000.00 could not be reversed. Reversal has been made after reducing subsequent credits in Table 4(A)(5) i.e. “All Other ITC” then reporting in GSTR-9 can be made as follows:
