Verification of DRC-03 and issue of SCN in certain cases

FORM GST DRC-03 is a digital intimation of payment made by the taxpayer voluntarily or made against show cause notice (SCN)/statement. As per Section 73(7) and Sec 74(7), the tax officer is expected to verify the payment received from the taxpayer and if the amount paid falls short of the amount actually payable, they shall proceed to issue the notice in respect of such amount which falls short of the amount actually payable. Accordingly, verification of DRC 03 payment is built in this module.

FORM, DRC-01 is a digital summary of the show cause notice issued to the taxpayer. The taxpayer can make a payment against the DRC 01 on the common portal using DRC 03. Verification of Interest paid in such DRC 03 is built in the system since tax is already quantified in the DRC01.

Overview of DRC-03

Processing of voluntary payments made by the taxpayer through DRC-03 before the issue of any notice

  • The DRC-03 is displayed on the dashboard of Jurisdictional Range Officer, who in turn verifies himself or re-assigns to the proper officer depending upon monetary limit since the verification of DRC-03 falls in the ambit of adjudication. The Jurisdictional Range Office should carefully check and verify the details available in the documents received with the DRC 03 and re-assign to the proper officer any number of times associated with adjudication, Audit Commissionerate, Anti-Evasion Wing of Commissionerate or DGGI, as applicable. The Officer to whom DRC-03 is re-assigned can either do the verification of the form himself or he can delegate it to his Inspector.
  • The verification process of DRC 03 involves answering logical queries in the system leading to either acceptance of payment or issue of SCN. In case, payments are made voluntarily and the validation tests are cleared, the proper officer can issue DRC-04 (Acknowledgement of acceptance of payments made voluntarily). In case, deficiencies if any, are found the tax officer is expected to seek clarification offline, from the taxpayer in this regard. The records of such offline communication have to be uploaded to the system.
  • During the process of verification, a series of questions/checklist appears on the screen of the user. The subsequent questions change on the basis of the validations. Further, if it has been established by the officer that there is a fraud/willful misstatement/ suppression from the taxpayer and still, the payment(DRC-03) is received from the taxpayer is in respect of Section 73, then the revised section gets changed to 74 and doesn’t allow issue of DRC-04. Further, the revised liability as calculated by the tax officer is allowed to be captured in the system.

Instructions for taxpayer for filing DRC-03 in Common Portal

  • Making Voluntary Payment on GST Portal: A facility is given to taxpayers to make payment on voluntary basis, through Form GST DRC-03 (refer Rule 142(2) or 142(3) of the CGST Rules, 2017). Login into GST Portal and navigate to Services > User Services > My Applications and Select the Intimation of Voluntary Payment – DRC – 03, from the Application Type drop-down list.
  • When to make Payment Voluntary Payment: Payment can be voluntarily made by taxpayer for a self-ascertained liability or in response to the show cause notice (SCN) raised by the tax authorities, u/s 73 or 74 of the CGST Act, 2017, within 30 days of issuance of SCN or even before issuance of the SCN.
  • Partial Payment not allowed: GST Portal does not allow for making partial payments of the amount stated in the SCN.
  • Cause of Payment: Payments through Form GST DRC-03 can be made for any causes like Audit, Investigation, Voluntary Payment, SCN, Annual Return, Reconciliation Statement or Others.
  • Saving Draft DRC 03 Application: Draft of Application for intimation of voluntary payment can be saved for a maximum period of 15 days. If the same is not filed within 15 days, the saved draft will be purged. To view the saved application, navigate to Services > User Services > My Saved Applications option.
  • Using Payment Reference Number: If payment has been made and payment reference number (PRN) has been generated, but application in Form GST DRC-03 has not been filed, then in such cases, application available in ‘My Saved Applications’ need to be selected and using PRN already generated, it may be filed. However, if a period of fifteen days has elapsed, then, details in Form need to be filled up again. PRN generated already can be used for filing the application.
  • Filing Form GST DRC 03: Taxpayers are required to file Form GST DRC-03 using DSC or EVC, as the case may be, after making payment. The status will change to “Pending for approval by Tax officer”. However, it may be noted that, no approval of tax officer is needed on earlier application, while making another voluntary payment using FORM GST DRC 03.
  • Acknowledgment by Tax Official: Upon filing of Form GST DRC-03, the tax officer will issue an Acknowledgement in Form GST DRC-04(Acknowledgement of Acceptance of voluntary payment). There is no bar on making another payment on voluntary basis by a taxpayer, pending issuance of acknowledgement by the tax officer.
