Notification No. 49/2019 – Central Tax
Issue of Invoices/Debit Notes during the period of suspension of Registration
Explanation has been added that when the GST Registration is in suspension status, during this period the taxpayers cannot issue any tax invoices or debit notes.
Matching for claiming Input Tax Credit
Though the new return formats have been deferred to next financial year, the Government has introduced the Matching concept indirectly through the insertion of Sub-Rule (4) in Rule 36, that the taxpayers can claim input tax credit to the extent of 20% of the matched invoices. This means that, the recipient can claim only 20% of the input tax credit of the invoices which are uploaded by suppliers in their GSTR – 1’s.
Example – say the taxpayer has an inward supplies of Rs 25,000 during the month from three different suppliers A, B & C for an invoices of Rs 10,000 by A, Rs 10,000 by B and Rs 5,000 by C and assuming the tax rate is 10%, the recipient can claim Input tax credit of Rs 2,500 and the same is being claimed in GSTR – 3B.
Assuming that Supplier A & C have only filed their GSTR – 1, then the amount reflected in GSTR – 2A of the recipient is only Rs 15,000.
As per the new provisions, the recipient can claim only 120% of Rs 15,000 i.e. Rs 1,800 only.
This means the recipient has to pay Rs 700 in cash, which means additional requirement of working capital.
So, going forward, the taxpayers have to follow up or chase their suppliers for filing of the GSTR – 1 by the due date else they will be facing liquidity crunch.
