GST Portal launches utility Table 6A in Form GSTR1 for exporters to


claim refunds





Dear Members,


As per updates on GST Portal (  a utility Table 6A in Form GSTR1 has been introduced for exporters to claim IGST refunds.


Since for the months of August, September and October taxpayers might have filed return GSTR- 3B but as the dates for filing of GSTR-1 for August onwards have not yet been notified and GSTR1 has not been filed, therefore to enable exporters to file for refund, this functionality has been made available, the GSTN said.


As you are aware, the shipping bill filed by an exporter with customs authorities is considered to be an application for refund of integrated tax paid on the goods exported out of India. The export details from the month of August-2017 onwards can be filed in Table 6A of Form GSTR 1 on the portal.   


The Table 6A of Form GSTR1 can be filed from the returns section of the GST Portal and enables taxpayers to file export related data for the tax period so that refund of that tax- period may be processed on the basis of declaration made under Form GSTR 3B and Table 6A of GSTR 1.


Exporters can save and upload their export data which are part of GSTR-1 after filling up export details in table 6A. The table will be then extracted separately and after exporters digitally sign it, it would automatically go to the customs department. The customs department will then validate the information provided in the table with the shipping bill data and also the taxes paid in GSTR-3B. The refund amount would be either credited to exporters bank account through ECS or a cheque would be issued.


Members are requested to take note  of  same and do the needful submission of export data for IGST refund processing. Difficulties if any, can be highlighted to under cc to & .

Thanking You,

Yours faithfully,


(S. G. Bharadi)
