To improve and simply, GST Council approved concept of new simplified format of GST returns in its 28th GST Council meeting held on 21st JULY,2018.

Revised Formats are proposed to implement with effect from 1st April,2019 on trial basis and if it operates well then such formats will become mandatory with effect from 1st July,2019, as decided in 31st GST Council meeting. However, due to lack of technical support only GSTR-1, GSTR-3B (Summary return) are continue till March,2020..

The GST Council officially unveiled three new GST returns forms names GST RET-1 “NORMAL Form”, GST RET-2” SAHAJ Form” and GST RT-03 “SUGAM” Form . The new GST returns forms will be introduce on trial basis from Nov,2019 to Mar,2020 along with existing returns i.e. GSTR-1,GSTR-2 AND GSTR-3B etc.,

Now, we see how New GST Returns Scheme Normal, Sahaj and Sugam Forms are prepare and upload in the GSTN Site. What are the procedures we have to follow to prepare New GST Return Forms i.e. Normal, Sahaj and Sugam.

Dear colleagues, firstly we have to refer what are the conditions to choose each form of your client. The conditions are as below:

A) Aggregate turnover of the last Finance Year i.e 2018-19 as per definition of ‘AGGREGATE TURNOVER” under GST Law,2017,

B) Whether your client is having E-Commerce transactions or not

C) Your client cannot make supplies through E-Commerce Operators on which tax is required to be collected U/s. 52.

The Following table will help you to understand what are the options available to you on the basis of aggregate turnover :

Turnover New Return Form Frequency of Filling of Form                      Description
Turnover Above Rs.5 Cr. Form GST RET-1 Normal (Monthly) If your client is new registered taxpayer turnover will be decided on the basis of self-declaration made by them on estimated turnover.
Turnover Up to Rs.5 Cr.. Form GST RET-1 Normal (Monthly) If your client already registered tax payer it will be decided on the basis of last year turnover.

3). Periodicity of return filing will remain unchanged during the next Financial Year , unless changed before filling the first return of that year.

If your client’s aggregate turnover up to Rs.5 Cr. there are  an options to switch over from one return to other return. The following table will help you for better under -stand:

Illustrations:

a)     A supplier issues an invoice for Rs. 1000/- to the recipient in the month of May. The recipient accepts the invoice in his FORM GST ANX-2 and the credit involved in the said invoice gets auto-populated in his FORM GST RET-1. In the month of June, the supplier gives a credit note to the recipient who accepts the same in his FORM GST ANX-2. Upon acceptance of the said credit note, the credit involved therein is reversed and this gets reflected in FORM GST RET-1. No adjustment needs to be made in such a case.

b) A supplier issues an invoice for Rs. 1000/- to the recipient in the month of May. The recipient accepts the invoice in his FORM GST ANX-2 but takes 50% credit on the said invoice in his FORM GST RET-1. In the month of June, the supplier gives a credit note to the recipient who accepts the same in his FORM GST ANX-2. Upon acceptance of the said credit note, the credit involved therein is reversed and this gets reflected in FORM GST RET-1. In such a case, the recipient may make an upward adjustment of 50% credit in this row as he had initially taken only 50% credit on the original invoice.

c) A supplier issues an invoice for Rs. 1000/- to the recipient in the month of May. The recipient accepts the invoice in his FORM GST ANX-2 but takes no credit on the said invoice in his FORM GST RET-1.

Upon acceptance of the said credit note, the credit involved therein is reversed and this gets reflected in FORM GST RET-1. In such a case, the recipient may make an upward adjustment of 100% credit in this row as initially he had not taken any credit on the original invoice.
