1. In the 31st GST Council meeting, recommendation was made for new GST Returns to facilitate tax payer. In order to effect such change, a transition plan has been introduced by CBIC. Under the new scheme, Form GST ANX – 1 shall replace Form GSTR-1 and Form GST RET -01 shall replace Form GSTR-3B.

2. The dealer shall be able to upload invoices using FORM GST ANX-1 offline tool. The details in respect of inward supplies can be viewed and downloaded in Form GST ANX-2 (offline tool). The dealer can import the purchase register in the offline tool and match it with the downloaded inward supply in order to arrive at the differences.
