GST is changing every day and to make it more simple new changes are being introduced to make it more viable and feasible. Let’s have a look at why there is a difference between auto-populated data of GSTR-2A shown in GST login through a case study to make it more easy to understand.
Nowadays, the GST portal has started showing monthly summary reports of Liability declared and credit claimed by the registered persons in a financial year. Following reports can be viewed in the GST site –
1. Liability statement other than export and reverse charge
2. Liability due to reverse charge
3. Liability due to export and SEZ supplies
4. ITC credit claimed and due.
Out of these 4 reports, the ITC credit claimed and due report is one of the most important reports which is useful in the preparation of ITC related information in GSTR-9.
This report shows a monthly summary of ITC claimed in 3B and appearing in GSTR-2A auto-populated for that month.
The following is a sample view of ITC credit claimed and due report of a particular case.
ITC Credit Claimed and Due Report
However, when we see the auto-populated figure in point no. 8 of GSTR-9 of the same GSTIN, that figures are slightly different from the above report. The following is what appears on the screen.
Auto populated figures in point no. 8 of GSTR-9
As you can see that the auto-populated figures of 2A as showing in point number 8 of GSTR-9 and figures as showing in the ITC Credit claimed and due report, there is a difference in IGST figure. Total of IGST in ITC claimed and due report is 63,43,276.76 whereas in point no. 8 of GSTR-9 it is shown as 61,91,525.11. There is a difference of Rs. 1,51,751.65 in these 2 figures.
One may think, how this can be possible, where one report on the GST site shows one figure and the same GST site is showing another figure in another report.
How Digitax helps in finding this difference?
In Digitax G-Recs ITC reconciliation software you can see the consolidated 2A report for the whole financial year in various formats.
1. Invoice Wise 2A report classified into Regular Invoices, Amended Invoices, Credit Note Debit Notes and Reverse Charge Invoices
2. GSTIN Wise 2A report
3. GSTIN wise 2A summary
4. Month wise 2A Summary
Now, let’s see in the above case, how the difference can be easily seen.
When we see the invoice wise 2A report for the financial year in Digitax, the software classifies the Regular Invoices, Credit Notes, Debit Notes, Amended Invoices and Reverse Charge Invoices appearing in 2A for the whole financial year.
In the above case, when we see the 2A report for the FY 2017-18, the following classification comes.
From above it becomes clear that in the point no. 8 of GSTR-9, the auto-populated figures of ITC does not include Reverse Charge Invoices on which tax is liable to be paid on reverse charge basis. However, the credit claimed and due report, the credit of reverse charge invoices is included.
Sorting out the above difference without the help of any tool is quite challenging, whereas, with the right tool, you can save your valuable time and energy while preparing for GSTR-9.
