Table 7 – Details of Reversed and Ineligible ITC for the financial year

In this table Input Tax Credit reversed at the time of filing of periodic return viz. GSTR-3B due to ineligibility pursuant to Rule 37, 39, 42, 43 and Section 17 (5), is required to be reported under each of the sub clauses viz. 7A to 7H of Table 7.

However, if amount mentioned in Table 4D of FORM GSTR-3B was included in Table 4A and also included in Table 4B of FORM GSTR-3B, then entry will come in Table 7E of FORM GSTR-9.

If any input tax credits, which were not reversed while filing returns (GSTR-3B) for the financial under consideration, shall not be disclosed in Table 7.

It has been clarified in Instruction No. 5 that for FY 2017-18 and 2018-19, the registered person shall have an option to either fill his information on reversals separately in Table 7A to 7E or report the entire amount of reversal under Table 7H only.

The amount so determined shall form part of the output tax liability of the registered person and the details of the amount shall be furnished in FORM GST ITC-03.

Table 7J – Net ITC available for utilization (Table 6O – 7I)

In this table amount would be auto calculated based on the amounts provided under Table 6O and 7I. This is the net amount available for utilization against tax liability and such an amount then would be reflected at Table 12E of GSTR – 9C.

Table 8 – Other ITC related information

As the name suggests, in this Table is only for information purpose and majority of the details are auto calculated or populated and some of the information have to be provided by the tax payers on the bases of details of ITC as declared in returns filed during the financial year.

Table 8A – ITC as per GSTR-2A (Table 3 and 5 thereof)

The total credit available for inwards supplies (other than imports and inwards supplies liable to reverse charge but includes services received from SEZs) pertaining to the FY 2018-19 and reflected in FORM GSTR-2A (table 3 and 5 only) shall be auto-populated in this table. This would be the aggregate of all the input tax credit that has been declared by the corresponding suppliers in their FORM GSTR-1. It has been clarified in Instruction No. 5 that the FORM GSTR-2A generated as on the 1st November, 2019 shall be auto-populated in this table. Further, the registered person shall have an option to upload the details for the entries in Table 8A to 8D duly signed, in PDF format in FORM GSTR-9C (without the CA certification).

Table 8B – ITC as per total of Table 6B and 6H

The input tax credit as declared in Table 6B (Input Tax Credit on Inward supplies other than imports and tax payable under RCM) and 6H (Amount of ITC re-claimed) shall be auto-populated here.

Table 8C – ITC on inward supplies (other than imports and inward supplies liable to reverse charge but includes services received from SEZs) received during 2018 – 19, but availed during the period April 19 to September, 2019

Aggregate value of input tax credit availed on all inward supplies (except those on which tax is payable on reverse charge basis but includes supply of services received from SEZs) received during the financial year 2018-19 shall be reported under this table. Moreover, ITC on inward supplies viz. imports of goods and services or both and tax to be discharged pursuant to Section 9(3) and 9(4) of CGST Act as also Section 5(3) and 5(4) of IGST Act is not required to be reported under this table.

Tax payer can refer to Table 4(A)(5) of FORM GSTR-3B and it may be used for filling up these details. However, one important thing to be kept in mind is that if any inward supplies which were still not declared in periodical returns and tax payers realise the same at the time of filing of the annual return, tax payers shall not be able to avail such input tax credit on such inward supplies. Instruction No. 4 of the annual return very categorically provides that only additional liability for the FY 2017-18 and FY 2018 – 19, not declared in FORM GSTR-1 and FORM GSTR-3B may be declared in this return. Further, taxpayers cannot claim input tax credit unclaimed through this return.

Table 8D – Difference – (A-B + C)

Aggregate value of the input tax credit which was available in FORM GSTR-2A (table 3 and 5 only) but not availed in FORM GSTR-3B returns shall be computed based on values of 8A, 8B and 8C of this Table. However, there may be circumstances where the credit availed in FORM GSTR-3B was greater than the credit available in FORM GSTR-2A. In such cases, the value in row 8D shall be negative. It appears that annual return will accept negative amount.

It has been clarified in Instruction 5 that for FY 2017-18 and 2018-19, the registered person shall have an option to upload the details for the entries in Table 8A to Table 8D duly signed, in PDF format in FORM GSTR-9C (without the CA certification).

Table 8E and F – ITC available but not availed and ITC available but not eligible.

The credit which was available and not availed in FORM GSTR-3B and ineligible credit not availed in FORM GSTR-3B shall be reported in respective tables. One very important change that has taken place when one compares earlier format of annual return with revised format of annual return which was introduced on 31-12-2018, was that in Table 8E and 8F, earlier ITC amount was to be compiled only from Table 8D. However, in new format of Annual return, such condition is removed. Accordingly, it appears that tax payers are required to compile details of ITC available but not availed and in-eligible from the financial statement

Table 8G – IGST paid on import (including supplies from SEZ)

Aggregate value of IGST paid at the time of imports (including imports from SEZs) during the financial year shall be compiled and reported under this table. It means this data have to be compiled from financial statement for the FY 2018-19.

Table 8H – IGST credit availed on import of goods (as per Table 6E)

The input tax credit (IGST) availed on the import of goods and declared at the time of filing periodical return in Form GSTR-3B and filled in Table 6E shall be auto-populated in this Table.

Table 8I – Difference (Table 8G – Table 8H)

Total IGST paid on import of goods during the financial year FY 2018-19 as per Financial Statement and Total IGST credit claimed in FY 2018-19 through GSTR-3B, will be reported in this Table. Difference between these two amounts will be auto calculated in this Table.

Table 8J – ITC available but not availed on import of goods (Equal to I)

Tax payers are expected to report IGST paid on import of goods which are available or eligible ITC but do not like to avail the same. Ideally such amount should be equal to the amount appearing in Table 8I, but it may so happen that in a situation where tax payer have paid IGST but not availed in periodical returns Form GSTR-3B during the FY 2018-19 but availed such IGST paid in the periodic return of April to September 2019. In such a situation, ITC available but not availed may not be equal to Table 8I.

It has been clarified at para (d) of the Press Release dated 3rd July 2019 that taxpayers need not be concerned about the values reflected in this table. This is information that the Government needs for settlement purposes between the Central and the State Governments.

Table 8K – Total ITC to be lapsed during current financial year

Total input tax credit computed from Table 8E + 8F + 8J would be auto calculated.

As mentioned herein above as per Press Release dt. 03rd July 20191 para d, it is clarified that “there is no question of lapsing of any such credit, since this credit never entered the electronic credit ledger of any taxpayer. Therefore, taxpayers need not be concerned about the values reflected in this table. This is information that the Government needs for settlement purposes”.

Part – IV

In this part only one table i.e. Table 9 needs to be compiled and most of the details in this table will be auto populated. GST portal will extract the details of taxes paid through cash and by utilizing Input Tax Credit from the periodical returns i.e. Form GSTR-3B (Table 6.1 of GSTR – 3B) uploaded by tax payers. It is important to note that all the columns in this Table would auto-populated and not editable except column 2 (Tax payable). It appears that column 2 had been kept editable so that additional liability can be added in column 2 and can be paid off by filling DRC-03 challan. In other words, tax payable column have to be compiled on the basis of tax liability computed on the basis of financial statement without taking effect of any ITC.

Further, it is to be kept in mind that Total Tax payable (IGST + CGST + SGST / UTGST + Cess) would be reflected in Table 9 Q of GSTR – 9C.

It has been clarified at para (h) of the Press Release dated 4th June, 2019 that when payment is made through Form DRC-03, such payments would not be accounted in Form GSTR – 9 but shall be reported during reconciliation in Form GSTR – 9C.
