Circular No. 183/15/2022-GST dated December 27th, 2022

During the initial period of implementation of GST, certain suppliers have failed to furnish the correct details of outward supplies in their FORM GSTR-1, which has led to certain deficiencies or discrepancies in FORM GSTR-2A of their recipients. However, the concerned recipients may have availed input tax credit on the said supplies in their returns in FORM GSTR-3B. The discrepancies between the amount of ITC availed by the registered persons in their returns in FORM GSTR-3B and the amount as available in their FORM GSTR-2A are noticed by the tax officers during proceedings such as scrutiny/ audit/ investigation etc. due to such credit not flowing to FORM GSTR-2A of the said registered persons. Such discrepancies are considered by the tax officers as representing ineligible ITC availed by the registered persons.

Now, the CBIC has issued clarification to deal with difference in ITC availed in GSTR-3B and GSTR-2A for FY 2017-18 and 2018-19 since GSTR-2A could not be made available to the taxpayers on the common portal during the initial stages of implementation of GST and a detailed procedure is prescribed to ensure uniformity in the implementation.
