The Compliances have undergone a significant change in the last month with implementation of several changes announced in Finance Act, 2022 with effect from 1 October 2022. The extension of timelines to rectify the details and avail ITC relating to previous financial year has come as a sort of welcome relief for the taxpayers. Also, the government and CBIC is undertaking measures to help the taxpayers with the filing of transitional returns because of the Supreme Court order considering the portal will close on 30th November 2022 for such transitional returns.

The article enlists the important compliances due dates and various updates under the GST that have taken place during the past month, impacting the taxpayers at large.

A. GST Compliance Calendar:

1. Reconciliation of ITC with GSTR-2B auto-populated details of invoices is mandatory for availment of ITC in GSTR-3B by the recipient taxpayer.

2. Mandatory separate disclosures of ineligible ITC and ITC reclaimed during the month in GSTR-3B.

3. As a result of the implementation of budget changes, the portal is no longer allowing the taxpayers to file the GSTR-3B if the GSTR-1 return for the same tax period is no filed. Consequently, sequential filing of GST returns has become mandatory on GSTN portal.
