10.       One of my clients is importing goods. According to GST returns, we need to upload only sales. How about import purchase? How will it be reflected on my GST portal?

Imports of goods and services are treated as inter-state supplies and therefore IGST will be levied on the import. The incidence of tax will follow the destination principle and the tax revenue in case of SGST will be accrued to the State where the imported goods and services are consumed. Full and complete set-off will be available on the GST paid on import on goods and services.

In general, the supplier of goods or services is liable to pay GST. However, in specified cases like imports and other notified supplies, the liability may be cast on you as the recipient under the reverse charge mechanism. Please note that import purchases will be captured in GSTR-2 in Column 5 - Goods/capital goods received from overseas (Import of goods).

For more information, you can refer to the linked document (http://www.cbec.gov.in/resources/htdocs-cbec/gst/draft-return-formats-26092016.pdf).

 17.      What is the criteria and eligibility for claiming ITC under the GST regime?

Under the GST regime, input tax credit can be availed by every registered taxable person on all inputs used or intended to be used in the course of or for furtherance of business. However, claiming ITC is subject to certain conditions:

o     You should have the Tax Invoice/Debit or Credit Note issued by a registered person.

o     The goods/services should have been received.

o     You should have filed GSTR-3 for the related month

o     The tax charged has been paid to the government by the supplier, either in cash or through utilization of ITC.

To know about the criteria and eligibility in detail for claiming ITC, refer to the following blogs:

o     Your checklist for availing input tax credit

o     Scenarios where you cannot avail input tax credit

Refer to Transferring Tax Credits of VAT, excise and service tax to GST, for more information.

18.       If my GSTR-1 and GSTR-2A are all correct, can I upload my GSTR2 and GSTR 3 together?

Yes, you can upload GSTR-2 and GSTR-3 together on the same day. GSTR is an auto-populated return, and therefore, you need to download the same on or after 20th of the month when the return was filed. This helps in calculating GST liability payable after adjusting the provisional ITC. However, you can pay your GST liability in advance which will be credited to your e-cash leger on the GST portal. While generating GSTR-3, the same e-cash ledger will be debited up to the payable amount.

B2C large invoices

B2C small invoices

The value of the interstate sales transaction is greater than or equal to Rs. 2.5 Lakh.
