Every registered taxable person shall be entitled to take credit of input tax admissible to him and the said amount shall be credited to the electronic credit ledger of such person.

“Electronic credit ledger” means the input tax credit ledger in electronic form maintained at the common portal for each registered taxable person in the manner as may be prescribed in this behalf [ clause 2(41) of GST Model Law, 2016.]

One major provision is that the input tax credit will be available only when tax charged in respect of such supply has been actually paid to the credit of the appropriate Government.

For this purpose, a provision has been made of ‘provisional credit’ and ‘final credit’.

The provisional input tax credit will be available on basis of initial return filed by supplier of goods and services. This return is to be filed on or before 10th of the subsequent month. The receiver of goods and services is required to file return of receipt of goods and services by 15th of the subsequent month.

However, if the supplier of goods and services fails to pay the tax (i.e. unless he files a ‘valid return’) the final input tax credit will not be available.

It may be noted that unless supplier of goods and services pays entire tax due, the return filed by him will not be ‘valid return’. Thus, partial payment by supplier will not entitle the receiver of goods and services to avail input tax credit.

Steps for Hassle free compliance of ITC under GST

One of the most important things under GST will be timely uploading of the details of outward supplies in Form GSTR-1 by 10th of next month. How best this can be ensured will depend on the number of B2B invoices that the taxpayer issues. If the number is small, the taxpayer can upload all the information in one go. However, if the number of invoices is large, the invoices (or debit/ credit notes) should be uploaded on a regular basis. GSTN will allow regular uploading of invoices even on a real time basis. Till the statement is actually submitted, the system will also allow the taxpayer to modify the uploaded invoices.

  • It would always be beneficial for the taxpayers to regularly upload the invoices. Last minute rush will make uploading difficult and will come with higher risk of possible failure and default
  • Taxpayers should follow up on uploading the invoices of their inward supplies by their suppliers. This would be helpful in ensuring that the input tax credit is available without any hassle and delay. Recipients can also encourage their suppliers to upload their invoices on a regular basis instead of doing it on or close to the due date. The system would allow recipients to see if their suppliers have uploaded invoices pertaining to them. The GSTN system will also provide the track record about the compliance level of a tax payer, especially about his track record in respect of timely uploading of his supply invoices giving details about the auto reversals that have happened for invoices issued by a supplier. The Common Portal of GST would have pan India data at one place which will enable valuable services to the taxpayers.
