Changes in GSTR-3B| With Effect from 01.09.2022

GSTR-3B is a crucial document as it provides a summary of GST output and Inputs to the government. In Table-4 of GSTR-3B, bifurcation is provided of Input Tax Credit availed by the taxpayer.

However, the government noted that in various cases taxpayers were making incorrect disclosures in Table 4 leading to false information to the government. Therefore, the government suggested various changes in Table-4 of GSTR-3B vide Notification No. 14/2022-Central Tax dated 5th July 2022 and clarified various disclosure-related issues vide Circular No. 170/02/2022-GST dated 6th July 2022.

  • Therefore, ITC once reversed through Table 4B(1) shall not be reclaimed.

Notes:

  1. If any reversal made under Rule 42 or 43 or ITC shown as ineligible u/s 17(5) is required to be reclaimed in the following tax periods due to any reason then revised GSTR-3B does not provide any option for the same. 
  2. A taxpayer may reclaim the ITC in Table 4A(5) but there is no row in Table 4D to disclose such reclaim.

4. Other Amendments

  • For supplies made through e-commerce platforms, a separate Table 3.1.1(ii) has been inserted.
  • Changes in GSTR-2B in line with revised GSTR-3B are still under process. Therefore, taxpayers may find pre-filled entries in GSTR-3B as not correct. Accordingly, taxpayers should reflect the changes required in the GSTR-3B return by way of editing the pre-filled entries so as to correctly self-assess the GSTR-3B return. 
  • Revised GSTR-2B would be available on GST Portal in due course of time.
