Some Important Aspects

> Form-PMT-09 is now live on GST Portal from 21.04.2020. In this form a tax payer can transfer any amount of tax, interest, penalty, etc. that is available in the electronic cash ledger, to the appropriate tax or cess head under IGST, CGST and SGST in the electronic cash ledger. Hence, if a taxpayer has wrongly paid CGST instead of SGST, he can now rectify the same using Form PMT-09 by reallocating the amount from the CGST head to the SGST head.

> A tax payer filed GSTR-3B by claiming ITC of 2 Cr. Instead of 2 Lacs, now tax payer can not do anything about it, either he has to reverse it by paying appropriate interest or he has to utilize it. The same case happened that went in Patna High Court, and Patna High court given a landmark judgment that Intention of the tax payer has to be seen, there is no option to revise the GSTR-3B by using which tax payer can correct the same. Finally the HC allowed the assess to file a Manual GSTR-3B. So it has to be kept in mind if we wrongly claimed any ITC we should not utilize it, if we utilize the same nothing can be done then.

> As per rule 36(4) of the CGST Rues 2017 inserted by notification number 49/2019 CT dated 09.10.2019,there shall be a capping of 20% which later on reduced to even 10% of the eligible Credit. This has to be done on a monthly basis. But by notification number 30-36/2020 CT dated 03.04.2020, Circuar number 136 dated 03.04.2020 it has been said that the capping for the month of February to August can be done Cumulatively in the GSTR-3B of September 2020.

> As per Rule 86A, if a supplier does not pay taxes to govt on supplies made by him, the recipient will not be allowed to take ITC. So now the recipient needs to be cautioned about this draconian provision. However a WRIT has been filed against this. Govt has issued guidelines to Know Your Supplier(KYS) u/s 155.
