FAQ on GSTR 9 press release by CBIC on Jun 3 2019.

As you know, Trade and Industry of India are filling and filing their 2017-18 GST Annual Return for the first time. They have to file it in Form GSTR 9 before June 30 2019.Trade and Industry has some queries on GSTR 9.CBIC's press release tries to address them.The PR generally clarified 8 matters. In this ripple, I have tried to break down the press release in small easy workable points.

Here are the FAQ with their answers:


Question 1.

Can auto-populated data in GSTR 9 be corrected ?

Answer 1 :

YES, You are permitted to do manual corrections in the auto-populated data.


Tips on auto-population:

  • Auto-population of data isn't conclusive.
  • Auto-population is provided for taxpayer facilitation purposes only.
  • So, please don't worry with a mismatch between auto-populated data and data in your returns/books. Instead, you should just go ahead and correct the auto-populated data.



Question 2:

Where should you report the supplies made in 2017-18?

Answer 2:

You should report the supplies in Pt II of GSTR 9.



Question 3:

Where should you report the supplies that you made in 2017-18 but on which you paid tax in the year 2018-19 through GSTR 3B?

Answer 3:

Please report them in Pt 5 of GSTR 9.


Tip on Question 3:

  • In SHORT, you should report supplies according to the period in which the tax was paid on them through GSTR-3B.
  • And you should follow this even if you have declared otherwise in GSTR-1.
  • So, if you paid tax on supply in May 2018, then please report this supply in Pt V of GSTR-9 and not in Pt II.



Question 4:

How should you report the UNDECLARED supplies?

Answer 4:

If you haven't declared a supply earlier, then please declare the supply in part II of GSTR-9.


Tips on undeclared supply:

  • Please deposit the tax liability on undeclared supplies in form DRC-03.
  • Please report the payments made through Form DRC-03 in Form GSTR-9C and not in GSTR-9.



Question 5:

How should you report 2017-18 transactions that you declared in your returns between April 2018 to March 2019?

Answer 5:

Please report them in Pt V of GSTR-9.


Tips on Question 5:

  • If you have declared any FY 2017-18 transaction in your returns between April 2018 to March 2019 then please report them in Pt V of GSTR-9.
  • Similarly, the amendments that you furnished in Table 10 and Table 11 of form GSTR-1 should be reported in Pt V of GSTR-9.
  • Please report your tax payments made through DRC-03 in form GSTR-9C, and not in GSTR 9.
