It is always said that ‘In the End, we only regret the chances we did not take’.

GST department has given a chance to taxpayers to rectify their mistakes for the period July 2017 to March 2018, since, it was the first year of the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax in India and the taxpayers were still in the process of familiarising themselves with the new taxation system and could not do rectifications etc till stipulated time of September 2018.

Accordingly, CBIC has issued Removal of Difficulties- Order No. 02/2018- Central Tax dated 31.12.2018.

And, the last date to avail this chance is the due date of respective returns (GSTR 1 / GSTR 3B) for the month ended 31st March 2019.
So, it is advised not to miss taking this chance and to take relevant action well in time.

The following two amendments have been made through the same:

1. The registered person shall be entitled to take input tax credit after the due date of furnishing of the return under section 39 for the month of September, 2018 till the due date of furnishing of the return under the said section for the month of March, 2019 in respect of any invoice or invoice relating to such debit note for supply of goods or services or both made during the financial year 2017-18, the details of which have been uploaded by the supplier under sub-section (1) of section 37 till the due date for furnishing the details under sub-section (1) of said section for the month of March, 2019.

Accordingly, the Input Tax Credit (ITC) for the period July 2017 to March 2018, can be taken till 20th April 2019. The only condition to this is that, the invoice on which ITC is being availed should appear in GSTR-2A of the recipient.

The previously un-availed ITC shall as usual be claimed through respective tables of GSTR-3B. 

2. The rectification of error or omission in respect of the details furnished under sub-section (1) shall be allowed after furnishing of the return under section 39 for the month of September, 2018 till the due date for furnishing the details under subsection (1) for the month of March, 2019 or for the quarter January, 2019 to March, 2019.

This allows the registered persons to rectify the error or omissions made in already filed GSTR-1 for July 2017 to March 2018, till due date for quarter ended January-March 2019 i.e. 30th April, 2019 for those assesses who have opted for quarterly filing of GSTR-1 and till due date for filing GSTR-1 of March 2019 i.e. 11th April, 2019 for other assesses. Any omissions in GSTR-1 already filed can also be now added in the GSTR 1 upto above mentioned due dates.

a) If any invoices have been skipped to be entered, you can simply enter them in respective columns, along with current month’s invoices, entering the original Invoice dates.
