To avoid litigations in GST – File GSTR-1 in time

Case 1: If supplier fails to file GSTR-1 on or before 11th of the following month the recipient of the goods or services cannot claim ITC of the same in GSTR-3B for that month as GSTR-1 is not filed and the ITC of the same is not reflected in GSTR-2B of the recipient.

For Ex. If supplier does not file GSTR-1 for the month of Jan 2022, the recipient shall not be allowed to claim ITC for the same in GSTR-3B of Jan 2022.

Case 2: If supplier files GSTR-1 after 11th of the following month the recipient of the goods or services cannot claim ITC of the same for that month but can claim in GSTR-3B of the subsequent.

For Ex. If supplier files GSTR-1 for the month of Jan 2022 after 11th of the following month, the recipient shall be allowed to claim ITC for the same in GSTR-3B for the month of Feb 2022.

Case 3: If supplier files GSTR-1 on or before 11th of the following month but mentions incorrect GST number or mentions B2B supplies as B2C, recipient of the goods or services cannot claim ITC of the same in GSTR-3B for that month.

For Ex. If supplier files GSTR-1 for the month of Jan 2022 incorrectly and if amendment to the same is made in GSTR-1 of the Mar 2022, the recipient shall be allowed to claim ITC for the same in GSTR-3B for the month of Mar 2022.
