The last date of filing GSTR-9 and GSTR-9C for the Financial Year 17-18 is the 31st of January 2020. The new version of GSTR-9C was made available in December. The tax practitioners had been raising concerns about filing returns within such a short duration. This is what the GSTN had to say:

Query- New version of GSTR9C was made available on the Portal in December 2019. How can we file within one month? 

Ans -The offline tool for preparation and upload of GSTR 9C was provided on the Portal in April 2019. A total of 51,881 taxpayers had filed GSTR 9C using this tool by 26/08/2019. 

Some changes were made in tool in terms of Notification No. 56/2019 Central Tax in Oct 2019 and updated version of the tool was deployed in December 2019. Total 2,99,123 taxpayers have filed GSTR 9C up to 27/01/2020. 

Query- Government extended date for filing of GSTR-1 up to 17/01/2020 but portal allows the ITC shown in GSTR-2A up to 30/04/2019. 

Ans - Figures in table 8A of Form GSTR 9 are Auto populated only for GSTR 1 filed by the supplier taxpayer by due date of its filing i.e. 30th April, 2019. 

ITC on supplies of the financial year 2017-18, if reported after 30th April, 2019, will not get auto-populated in table 8A of Form GSTR-9 but will appear in Form GSTR-2A. 

Issue: Unable to delete data relating to Table 17 mistakenly entered in Table 18. 

Reply: Downloaded JSON of this data from the portal and import into offline tool. Thereafter make corrections, generate a new JSON and upload on Portal. 

Issue: Unable to delete data relating to Table 17 mistakenly entered in Table 18. 

Reply: Downloaded JSON of this data from the portal and import into offline tool. Thereafter make corrections, generate a new JSON and upload on Portal. 

Query: Where to show undeclared GST Turnover in GSTR-9? 

Reply: If tax is payable on that turnover, please declare it in Table 4 of GSTR-9. 

If tax is not payable, then declare it in Table 5 of GSTR-9.
