18th August  2017

 

ALL MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL

 

GSTR-3B filing due date for July 2017 extended to August 28, 2017  

(only for taxpayers who opt to use  Transition Input Credit  in the

current month return)

 

Dear Members,

 

As you are aware, GSTR-3B has to be filed for the month of July 2017 by the deadline of 20/08/2017. In this regard, we have already sent mailers informing about due dates of return filling for July and August 2017.

 

However, concerns have been raised by the trade about whether transitional credit would be available for discharging the tax liability for the month of July, 2017 as Trans-1 form is not active yet.

 

Taking cognizance of the concerns of industry, CBEC has issued notification No. 23/2017-Central tax  and Press  note both dated 17.08.2017 a wherein the  date and conditions for filing the return in FORM GSTR-3B have been specified.  

 

The deadline for first GST Return, GSTR- 3B, has been extended to 28th August 2017 from its original deadline of 20th August, 2017 only for taxpayers who opt to use the opening balance of pre-GST credit in the current month. Those who do not wish to claim opening credit in the current month or those who have no credit; the deadline continues to be August 20, 2017.

 

For the sake of convenience, salient points for  filing the said return are reproduced/ highlighted as follows:

  1. Registered persons planning not to avail transitional credit for discharging the tax liability for the month of July, 2017 or new registrants who do not have any transitional credit to avail need to follow the steps as detailed below:

 

I.  Calculate the tax payable as per the following formula:

Tax payable = (Output tax liability + Tax payable under reverse charge) – input tax credit availed for the month of July, 2017;

 

II. Tax payable as per (i) above to be deposited in cash on or before 20.08.2017 which will get credited to electronic cash ledger;

III. File the return in FORM GSTR-3B on or before 20.08.2017 after discharging the tax liability by debiting the electronic credit or cash  ledger.
