ITC pertaining to financial year 17 - 18
28 January 2020 XYZ (Manufacturer) had missed out claiming of ITC on certain imported machinery as well as on certain locally procured packing materials received in the financial year 17 – 18. As per the provisions, the deadline for claiming ITC for financial year 17 – 18 was 31.03.19. If XYZ claims such ITC in the current month, it might be definitely objected during departmental audit. If XYZ decides to contest, what are the chances of getting a favourable decision at CESTAT level or at High Court since the ITC involved is very large.
