GST Trans 1 is finally live on GSTN. Better late then never, government wakes up and gives a small relief to the taxpayers by granting small extension window for filing GSTR 3B. As on date the due dates stand as under :-

25th August, 2017- For assessee who doesn’t have to take transition credit

28th August 2017- For Assessee who have to take transition credit.

So the scenario is file GST Trans-1, get credit  in your Electronic Ledger and then file GSTR-3B after paying differential Tax liability. GST which was supposed to be a Good and Simple Tax, which is now in a state of confusion, due to lack of clarity in legal provisions. Government is hardly taking efforts in  identifying issues at ground level and addressing them in timely manner which is really disappointing. One such incident is GSTN website was not functioning on 19th August and the it seems it is unable to take load of GSTR 3B which is only the summary of Sales- Purchase for July 2017. Late evening around 7pm Government Gives extension sighting various reason of which non functioning of website was addressed in the end.Serious doubts are raised about readiness of GSTN to take the load when filing of  GSTR-1 and GSTR-2 would start.

Having said that finally Trans -1 GST is live and we have done a walk through to understand exactly what details are expected from the tax payers. Attached herewith is a small presentation giving a detail understanding of information sought in the Trans-1. We had studied the Draft of Trans 1 GST, however there are many changes in the final version. Government is asking for tremendous information through Trans-1 GST and GSTR’s, however are they actually ready to take load of so much DATA is a serious question. Well, God Save Taxpayers, however we have attached herewith our presentation on GST Trans-1 for your ready reference. We hope this helps you in filing the same and claim much needed transition credit.

    I am a trader registered under VAT. – In Trans 1 column 7(a)
    1) I am having ED invoice and can claim credit on column ” Eligible Duty pad” as duty ED amount mentioned in Invoice,
    2) I am also having VAT invoice wherein ED is not shown. What amount to be shown in ” Eligible Duty pad” as ED amount is not mentioned in Invoice,



    • Harshil Shah says:

      Where you have duty paid documents, select Yes and submit details accordingly. You would received 100% credit of Excise duty paid. However if you do not possess necessary duty paid documents in that case you need to select option “NO” and fill details accordingly.Since Invoice doesn’t contain ED amount, credit of the same wouldn’t be available. You would receive SGST credit upto 60% if GST rate on commodity is 18% OR MORE
      AND 40% Where GST rate is Less then 18%.

      Hope this suffice your queries

    • caharshil says:

      PLease fill in the necessary details in Entry 7a of Trans -1 form
      Also where duty paying documents are not available. Please select option “No” in duty paid documents available. In this case you would receive credit of 60% in SGST if GST rate is 18% or more and 40% where it is less than 18%
