Issue/Error Message:

2.2.1. Mismatch in ITC from 2A and credit liability statement

When this issue/error comes: Auto generation of GSTR 2A

Suggested solution:

The reason for mismatch between ‘ITC as per GSTR-2A (ITC accrued)’ in Credit and Liability Statement and actual GSTR2A form is as below –

1)The ITC accrued as per report generated, is on monthly basis even if the receiver has opted for quarterly filing, whereas GSTR2A form displays a consolidated amount in last month of quarter for invoices uploaded by suppliers for receiver, incase receiver has opted for quarterly filing.

2)ITC as per GSTR-2A (ITC accrued)’ in Credit and Liability Statement considers only submitted invoices, whereas GSTR-2A form displays both saved and submitted invoices. Also any invoices added after report generation cutoff date will only be reflected in GSTR2A form.

It is suggested to please compare the sum of ITC accrued in quarter from report with the sum of SUBMITTED invoices of quarter in GSTR2A form.

Notes:

Summary of GSTR1 may not match with GSTR9 Table 4 Data

• B2B section summary in GSTR1 would include reverse-charge/sez-withpay/ sez-without-pay/deemed. But they are all separate in GSTR9.
• For calculation purpose, credit note amounts should be considered negative and debit notes should be considered as positive. It is correct in GSTR1 Summary now but for first few months of GST deployment, it was considering both as positive.
• Amendment section’s summary in GSTR1 would only include the revised amount while it would include differential amount in GSTR9
• Definition of differential amount for Amendments of AT/B2CS(4(a),4(f)) is not straight forward.

Issue/Error Message:

2.5.4. Mismatch in ITC

When this issue/error comes:

Mismatch of ITC as per auto populated details in table 8 A of annual return (Form GSTR-9) with ITC as shown in Form GSTR 2A

Suggested solution:

Please note that GSTR2A data will not always matches with GSTR-9 –> Table 8A data because of following reasons:

1) Figures in GSTR-2A are auto populated based on filed/ saved / submitted Form GSTR-1 of the supplier taxpayer. But figures in table 8A of Form GSTR-9 are auto-populated only on the basis of only ‘FILED’ Form GSTR-1 by the supplier taxpayer. In case, Form GSTR -1 is not filed by your supplier, then credit related to those invoices will not appear in table 8A of your Form GSTR-9.

2) For FY: 2017-18, Figures in table 8A of Form GSTR-9 are auto populated only for those of Form GSTR-1, which are filed by the supplier taxpayer by due date of its filing i.e. 31st May, 2019. Thus, ITC on supplies of the financial year 2017-18, if reported beyond 31st May, 2019, will not get auto-populated in table 8A of Form GSTR-9.

For FY: 2018-19, Figures in table 8A of Form GSTR-9 are auto populated only for those of Form GSTR-1, which are filed by the supplier taxpayer by due date of its filing i.e. 31 October, 2019. Thus, ITC on supplies of the financial year 2018-19, if reported beyond 31st October, 2019, will not get auto-populated in table 8A of Form GSTR-9.

3) In ITC values in form GSTR-9 –> Table 8 –> point A, if supplier is not having Reverse charges (values: “N”) is considered for ITC calculations shown here. And if supplier is having Reverse charges (values: “Y”) will not be considered for ITC calculations.

4) For FY: 2017-18, In table 8A of Form GSTR-9, only latest values have been auto-populated based on filed Form GSTR-1, taking into account all the amendments made till 31 May, 2019.

For FY: 2018-19, In table 8A of Form GSTR-9, only latest values have been autopopulated based on filed Form GSTR-1, taking into account all the amendments made till 31 October, 2019.

Suppose an invoice with taxable value of Rs 100/- with tax of Rs. 18/- was filed in Form GSTR-1 in the month of January, 2019 and same was amended to Rs 90 as taxable value in the month of March, 2019, then

i. the Form GSTR-2A of January, 2019 will show ITC of Rs. 18
ii. the Form GSTR-2A of March, 2019 will show ITC of Rs 16.20 &
iii. the table 8A of Form GSTR-9 will account for ITC of Rs 16.20.

5) If GSTIN of original recipient has been changed through amendment, then original recipient will not get ITC, but ITC will be accounted for in table 8A of new recipient

6) For FY: 2017-18, In table 8A of Form GSTR-9, ITC related to all such invoices have been excluded in which place of supply lies in supplier’s taxpayers State, instead of State of the receiver taxpayer. Place of Supply should be same as Receiver State Code. These figures will be shown in Form GSTR-2A of the recipient.

For FY: 2018-19, In table 8A of Form GSTR-9, ITC related to all such invoices have been included where:

a) Place of Supply should be same as Receiver State Code.
b) Supplier’s State Code is same as Receiver’s State Code and Place of Supply is different.
c) All three Supplier’s State Code, Receiver’s State Code and Place of Supply are different.

7) The Figures in table 8A of Form GSTR-9 do not contain ITC for the period during which the recipient taxpayer was under composition scheme.

8) For FY: 2017-18, The Figures in table 8A of Form GSTR-9 do not contain ITC if Taxpayer is SEZ user.

For FY: 2018-19, The Figures in table 8A of Form GSTR-9 will also contain ITC if Taxpayer is SEZ user.
