  11. VIVEK SEHGAL says:

    I have to file return for the month of October 2018 and in this month at least three persons have deducted TDS under GST and one person has filed the return whose credit is being reflected. Can I accept that TDS credit and file my return and for others, can I take credit in the month of November 2018) later on when they file the TDS Return or I have to wait for filing the return for the month of October 2018. I personally feel that I should take credit for the TDS certificate which are appearing and take credit of the remaining TDS in the following months when they appear. Please reply.

  12. Pavan Kumar says:

    As per Rule TDS certificates to be downloaded by the deductor within 5 days of filing GSTR-7. Whether it can be downloaded before acceptance by the deductee. Further in our one case of deductor, when we go for downloading GSTR-7A from his portal ( Deductor) from menu user service> download certificates> TDS certificate, there is a requirement of ‘GSTIN of Deductor’, while it should be ‘ Deductee”. Kindly guide on the query.
