  • Circular No. 183/15/2022-GST dated 27 December 2022 has provided clarification on ITC reconciliation for FY 2017-18 and FY 2018-19. According to the Circular, for FY 2017-18 and FY 2018-19, the department should verify the fulfillment of conditions laid down in Section 16 of CGST Act i.e., –

a) he is in possession of a tax invoice or debit note issued by the supplier or such other tax paying documents.

b) he has received the goods or services or both.

c) he has made payment for the amount towards the value of supply, along with tax payable thereon, to the supplier.

The Circular is a welcome move as it will save the taxpayers from the exorbitant demands raised by the authorities and undue harassment to meet the tax targets.

  • In respect of taxability of renting of residential dwelling under RCM, the following clarification has been provided –

No GST is payable where the residential dwelling is rented to a registered person if it is rented it in his/her personal capacity for use as his/her own residence and on his own account and not on account of his business.
