 Formula for GST Refund

GST Refund amount in case of zero rated supply of goods/services or both (rule 89(4):

 Refund Amount = (Turnover of zero-rated supply of goods + Turnover of zero-rated supply of  services) x Net ITC ÷Adjusted Total Turnover

 Where,-

 (A) “Refund amount” means the maximum refund that is admissible;

(B) “Net ITC” means input tax credit availed on inputs and input services during the relevant period;

(C) “Turnover of zero-rated supply of goods” means the value of zero-rated supply of goods made during the relevant period without payment of tax under bond or letter of undertaking;

 (D) “Turnover of zero-rated supply of services” means the value of zero-rated supply of services made without payment of tax under bond or letter of undertaking, calculated in the following manner, namely:-

 Zero-rated supply of services is the aggregate of the payments received during the relevant period for zero-rated supply of services and zero-rated supply of services where supply has been completed for which payment had been received in advance in any period prior to the relevant period reduced by advances received for zero-rated supply of services for which the supply of services has not been completed during the relevant period;

(E) “Adjusted Total turnover” means the turnover in a State or a Union territory, as defined under clause (112) of section 2, excluding the value of exempt supplies other than zero-rated supplies, during the relevant period;

(F) “Relevant period” means the period for which the claim has been filed.

GST Refund on account of inverted duty structure, refund of input tax credit shall be granted as per the following formula (rule 89(5)–

Maximum Refund Amount = {(Turnover of inverted rated supply of goods) x Net ITC ÷ Adjusted Total Turnover} – tax payable on such inverted rated supply of goods

 Explanation.- For the purposes of this sub rule, the expressions “Net ITC” and “Adjusted Total turnover” shall have the same meanings as assigned to them in sub-rule (4) of rule 89.

  2. K Purushothaman says:

    Government is making exporters fool since inception of GST. How many changes have been made in the Rules? Latest, manual refund claim since portal not working ! Even after 15 days of filing the same no response from the authorities. First of all the government should change the rules of “pay to us first and take it back later” !! You have to complete many formalities to get back your money. If you do not pay in time, pay penalty. When Government falters, nobody can question. EASE OF DOING BUSINESS??
