Introduction

Filing of the annual return is not entirely a new phenomenon for taxpayers who were required to file annual return and submit reconciliation certificate by the specified persons including Chartered Accountant under the State VAT laws. Under central excise law also certain annual information such as total consumption of input, input output ratio, electricity consumption details were specified for some larger enterprises which however did not require any certification. Service tax law did not have any of such requirements except half yearly filing of returns.

Annual return is an opportunity to validate the tax positions with an intent to rectify the errors & omissions, if any. Therefore, detailed verification including proper disclosures in the annual return can save a taxpayer from unnecessary demands during departmental scrutiny/ audits etc. Hence, in this article we shall discuss each and every field of the annual returns and what information is required to be disclosed in each such field from the revenue and outward supply standpoint.

Table 4 of GSTR 9 - Reporting of details of advance, inward or outward supplies made during the financial year on which tax is payable

Table 4 provides for reporting of all supplies (i.e., outward supplies and RCM transactions) This table could include the transactions classified under:

  1. Transactions which are already considered in the GSTR 3B returns and tax on it is duly paid) and
  2. Transactions which are not at all considered in the GSTR 3B returns of any financial year(s).

Additional checks to be performed for Table 5 of GSTR 9

  1. Supply of goods to merchant exports is not exempted supply. Therefore, it should not be disclosed here. It would be disclosed in Table 4B. Supply of exempted goods in course of export would be eligible for ITC on inputs and input services. If well within the time limit, then ITC can be taken.
  2. Amendments have been made to schedule III to include supplies such as high sea sales, merchanting trades, supply of warehouse goods before clearance from customs warehouse. These transactions could be reported in column 5F.
  3. Column 5F can also include the 'pure agent' reimbursements. There is no provision in GSTR-3B to disclose these reimbursements. There is a practice to disclose such amounts as exempted supply turnover in GSTR-3B which is also not right as this may have impact on rule 42 and rule 43 compliance for reversal of ITC. When the amounts are not shown, then such amounts can be disclosed in column 5F. A comment/ observation can also be made in GSTR-9C to avoid confusion as to reversal of ITC.
  4. Transactions with distinct persons (branches/ regional offices etc.) would not be part of financial statements. However, impact under GST in terms of Schedule I to CGST Act 2017 to be considered where there is a liability. If registered, then the transactions should be disclosed in 4B/4I/4J.
  5. In case of exports, validity of documents such as LUT/ Bond can be reviewed. In case of any deficiency, appropriate action to renew it or obtain with condonation of delay to be considered. LUT where not filed, ensure letter for condonation of delay is available or where possible, LUT has been filed manually to the jurisdictional officer.
  6. There could also be mistake in type of tax paid. IGST liability would have been discharged as CGST & SGST or vice versa. Appropriate adjustments can be considered while filing annual return or the application of section 77 (CGST) or section 19(IGST) considering the situation at hand. Classification of supplies including rate of taxes applied can also be reviewed for confirmation. Action for short or excess payment could be taken.
  7. In case of any advance amounts which are liable for GST but not paid till now, then details can be disclosed in table 4F to discharge the GST through DRC-03.

Additional points for Table 10 & 11

1. Due to wordings used in the returns and instructions, it is quite common to get confused on disclosing of information between Part II of Form GSTR 9 and Part V of Form GSTR 9. It is important to collate the information of amendments made including debit note and credit note including dates and the year of supply it belongs to.

2. Table 10 can contain the details of debit note dated in previous financial year but reported in subsequent financial years return. It can also include tax invoices dated in previous financial year but reported between April to September of subsequent financial year. It can also include amendment made increasing the turnover through GSTR-1 as well.

3. Table 11 can contain the details of credit note dated in previous financial year but reported in subsequent financial years return. It can also include amendment made decreasing the turnover through GSTR-1 as well.

4. Workings for reporting done in GSTR 9 of FY 2021-22 must match with the corresponding workings & reporting made in Part V of GSTR 9 for FY 2020-21.

Conclusion

Many taxpayers have been receiving auto-generated system-based notices from the department on account of non-matching of the values of turnover between GSTR 1, GTSR 3B, GSTR 9, GSTR 9C which raises a cause of concern. Hence, it is very important to have proper verification mechanism in place to have a maker-checker concept while disclosing details in various forms and returns most importantly in GSTR 9 & 9C. Further, the exercise of filing Annual Returns must not be restricted to only number crunching and entering the values in various fields of each table but instead it must be considered as an opportunity to verify the tax positions taken, process improvement, records & accounts maintained and many more which would eventually help in adopting feasible tax structuring and to avoid future litigation.
