As per proviso to Section 16 (2) of the CGST Act, where the recipient fails to pay the supplier of goods or services or both, the amount due towards the value of supply along with tax payable there on, within a period of 180 days from the date of issue of invoice by the supplier,

– an amount equal to the Input Tax Credit (ITC) availed by the recipient shall be added to his output tax liability, along with interest there on.

This aspect shall be taken care while filing GST returns for the month of December as the Invoices issued before 4th July 2017 should have been cleared by now.

Hence before filing your GST returns for the month of December 2017, you have to thoroughly go through your bill wise outstanding details of your supplier’s accounts.

If any invoice as above is still outstanding, while calculating the Eligible Input Tax Credit for the month of Dec 2017 , you have to reverse the Input tax credit in respect of the invoices that are outstanding for 180 days or more.

Apart from the above, Interest @ 18% p.a. has to be paid on such input tax credit reversed from the date of availing the ITC till the date of reversal.

Also note that the ITC is reversible even though the payment is made partly.

The GST regime has brought many new concepts for making payment of appropriate GST dues. In the initial stages, it was confusing for most of the taxpayers to identify the correct head for the payment and in many instances, the taxes were remitted to inappropriate heads. For Example, the amount to be filled in SGST would have been filled in either CGST , IGST, Cess, Fees etc., This will be noticed by most of the tax payers only at the time of carrying out the set off of taxes, wherein they will notice that the amount was paid in inappropriate head.

The amount thus paid will lie in the Cash ledger of the taxpayers. The refund mechanism for the same was not operational in the GST portal till date. Now the GST portal has enabled those refund claims. Now you can file a refund application in the portal.

Follow the procedure as mentioned below to claim the refund of the excess amount lying in the Cash Ledger , in wrong accounts.

Step 1                                   :-             Visit the GST portal – www.gst.gov.in

Step 2                                   :-             Go to Services Tab

Step 3                                   :-             Select Refund option

Step 4                                   :-             Select the “Application for Refund” from the sub menu

Step 5                                   :-             Select “Refund of Excess in Electronic Cash Ledger” from the

available options

Step 6                                   :-             Now the portal will display the “Balance available in Cash ledger”

under various heads

Step 7                                   :-             Now in the box below “Refund claimed (in INR)” , fill the relevant

head for which you want the refund

Step 8                                   :-             Select the Account number to which the refund to be credited.

Please note that the bank account number will be automatically

filled based on your Profile.

Step 9                                   :-             Save & Submit the form using either Digital Signature or OTP.

On submission, you will be allotted an ARN for the refund claim and the status of the same can be checked from the link “Track application Status”
