  1. I registered work-contract regular GST different works. nil returns filed up to December 2018.
    Purchase material iron and cement invoices previous month missed. How the returns filed procedure work contract.

  2. Dear Sir/ Madam

    We are a property management company dealing in renting residential properties, i.e., we manage the house from the owner side and charge a service fee for that from the owner. Also, we render home maintenance (like plumbing, carpentry, etc) services to tenants on request, through our vendors and charge the service fee for that too.

    We are charging 18% as GST from this October from which we have registered under GST. Last year our turnover was Rs.22,00,000/- approx. What is GST form applicable and the due dates? Till now we have not filed GST returns. Also, we have NRO customers as owners, can we charge GST on them?

  3. Dear Sir/ Madam,

    Before GST I have a proprietorship firm due to outside resident I miss the conversion to my old TIN to new GST no.

    I want to convert my old TIN to GST in this period I have not doing any business in these name.

    1. Dear Rajesh Ji,

      I am an Architect and my office is in Shalimar Bagh. Basically, I want to know that Vat and GST return both are submitting in every quarter or only submit GST return. My CA submitted both returns. VAT in quarterly and GST every month.

      1. VAT returns are to filed only for the quarter Apr-June 2017. From July onwards, GST returns would be filed. An annual VAT return (VAT10A/11) is also required to be filed for FY 2017-18.

  4. Dear Madam,

    Thanks for the valuable knowledge. Please tell me about GST rate on Packers and movers services.

  5. Dear Madam,

    I am a scrap dealer and registered under GST. We finished the return up to February and till the date not filing excess input tax. Can I submit the REFUND form? Any dis-allowances for the same. Kindly clarify.

    Thanking you
    yours faithfully

  6. What type of return (NIL /GSTR-3) should I file if my annual turnover is less than 20 lakh and I came under SAC code 996311 in GST?

    1. If there are no supplies and ITC during the period, select the option “Do you want to file NIL return” which appears before GSTR-3B filing and verify the same through EVC/DSC.

  7. I mistakenly have taken the higher credit due to we have taken transitional credit into the 3B, so the input gets doubled so what is to be done? if I reversed it in 3B the payment has to be made for the same,

    Can we resort to the form PMT-4 for the same?

  8. I want to cancel a GST number for non-business, GST dept has mentioned us to upload bank statement of 2017-18 and other relevant documents. But I don’t know where to upload it. The last date for response is 18.05.2018.

  9. In GSTR 1 Table 12 HSN wise summary, should I give both, interstate as well as Intrastate sell value or only interstate sell value?

  10. Respected Madam,

    Since I was not aware of the rules of offset liability under IGST, CGST and SGST, I have paid Rs. 482 more in CGST and Rs. 482 less in SGST. Will it be allowed? If not what to do? Can I pay now additional Rs.482 in SGST? How to recover additional CGST paid by me?

  11. Madam,

    Thanks for your response.

    1) However, I have a problem, because even if Zomato gives me a revised invoice, I can not collect it from the customers. So, what to do?
    2) Also, I am an online seller on Zomato as the delivery only restaurant. My food item as a delivery restaurant has 5% GST with no ITC. Now I also collect delivery charges (including GST) and is shown on Zomato invoice. Now, can I consider this delivery charge as inclusive of GST @ 18% – That is my question.
    Will be grateful if you can guide me.
    3) I don’t raise invoice on customers, it is raised by Zomato on my behalf. I assume in that case I don’t have to fill Table 13. please correct me, if I am wrong

  12. Madam,
    Thanks a lot for your response.

    1) How to fill Table 13 as I am an online seller and hence B2C invoices are not raised. So can I assume that I don’t have to fill Table 13?
    2) I have got GST registration on 4th December. Zomato has inserted my GST no. and updated their system only on 8th Dec. So for sell between 4th and 8th, GST has not been collected. So is it OK that I show my GST revenue on Zomato from 8th onwards? (Of course, I will show my full revenue in ITR).
    3) Like me, many startups are charging 5% as the delivery the only restaurant with no ITC and are charging 18% on delivery charge and claim ITC for delivery charge. Can I also do the same?

    1. 1) In table 13, details of all supplies (whether to the registered customer or unregistered customer) made through e-commerce operator will have to be provided.
      2) As generally, details of all supplies will be given from registered date, as from that date you are liable
      to pay GST. But as you have issued invoices before GST no. updation, now you have to revise that invoices and charge GST on then and pay to the department.
      3) You can do the same.

  13. Dear Sir/Madam,

    Need your valuable advice, we dispatched our material through one transporter to Nasik & he gave LR also & raised bill for Rs. 21000/- & mentioned pay extra 5% RCM tax. Transporters turnover is 200 crore, but he told us he did not take GSTIN number. I want to ask you should we pay the 5% RCM tax & if we paid can we claim ITC?

    1. “Goods transport agency” services are covered under RCM provisions, so service receiver need to pay GST in this case and you can claim ITC of such tax in the next month of payment.

  14. Respected Madam,
    I have got my GST no. in December and it will be the first time that I will be filing the GST return. I have small kitchen unit and make chocolate preparation and sell it to customers on e-commerce site, Zomato for Intrastate customers and use the site like Amazon for interstate sale. At times there are direct customers just across the border to whom also I have to supply products. Given the background, as per my understanding,
    1) I have to pay tax, both for intrastate and interstate revenue, fill challan and pay tax after deducting ITC.
    2) I will adjust ITC only against my interstate supply (12% Tax) and not against Intrastate revenue (5% Tax, being considered as delivery only restaurant on Zomato)
    3) I will fill Table 3.1 under column (a), as I have outward taxable supplies to customers (which are not zero or nil rated or exempted)
    4) Do I have to fill Table 3.2 separately for supplies made on Amazon to Interstate customers or directly to some customers? I am not sure about this.
    5) I also collect delivery charges separately, Do I pay 18% GST on delivery charge for intrastate supply and claim ITC for this? If yes, under what SAC code I pay this GST. I am not sure about this part at all.
    6) I have to fill table 4 for ITC under column (5) for All other ITC. Is it correct?
    7) Fill Table 6
    Please let me know whether I have to fill any other table/column, which I have missed out.
    For GSTR-1
    A) I have to fill Table 7 (B2C Others) B)
    B) Do I have to fill Table 12, because I have only one HSN for my product, which I use only for interstate supply? If I have to fill Table 12, here I have to show only my Qty of interstate supply, Value of interstate supply and Integrated tax part.
    C) I don’t have to fill table 13, as my supply is B2C. Is it correct?

    Also for GSTR-1, Do I have to fill any other table, kindly guide me. I will be grateful for your guidance.

    1. (1) Yes, intrastate and interstate both taxes to be paid as regular sales under transaction type e-commerce transaction
      and to pay tax after setting off ITC.
      (2) ITC shall be allowed for both interstate and intrastate transaction.
      (4)Interstate supplies details only to be filled in 3 cases i.e. supplies made to unregistered persons, supplies made to
      composition taxable persons and supplies made to UIN holders. In case the recipient is unregistered, details need to be provided.
      (5)Delivery charges to be added to an original invoice and total taxable value shall be including invoice value plus delivery charges
      on which tax is to be paid. No SAC code is to be provided for it.
      (6) Yes, All other ITC tab to be filled. After this offset the liability through credit or cash from payment of tax

      For GSTR-1
      (A) Yes, Table 7 B2C others need to be filled.
      (B) HSN summary need to be provided if only have one HSN by filling the relevant fields.
      (C) If you have transactions from registered persons fill B2B details and in case of interstate transactions of more than 2.50
      lakhs fill B2C large details otherwise B2C small details. Table 13 need to be filled.

  15. Sir/Madam, Please give us advice on our this problem, we filed GSTR-3 B of October with payment within the time limit. Now in December at the time of Preparing GSTR-1 of October we came to know that Rs.8000/- we pay less tax (Rs.4000 Cgst+ SGST )against one invoice. But the invoice was the correct amount. the reason was our sale statement was the wrong & we paid tax on basis of the statement. We want to pay the remaining tax with interest, let me advice how to pay? Can we amend invoice in Octobers GSTR-1? but the question is invoice we raise was correct! Is it short payment issue?

    Also note we not yet filed October GSTR-1 we kept on hold because of this issues!

    1. As you have not entered that invoice details in GSTR-3B of that period, now you can add that invoice details in GSTR-1 for the concerned period and pay the tax accordingly with interest.

  16. Madam, Thanks.

    Yes Madam, but when I operate within the state, I am only operating as a delivery restaurant and hence charge 5% GST. However, when I sell on Amazon as a packaged item, I charge 18% IGST. Trust it is OK.

    Also, I have my kitchen unit in the state of Maharashtra. and I sell it based on the order received by me on Zomato platform. I am thinking of putting the warehouse in Gujarat and sell in the state of Gujarat based on the orders I will receive on Zomato in Gujarat. I will not have the manufacturing unit in Gujarat, only warehouse. In that case, Do I have to take GST in Gujarat also?

    Will be grateful for your guidance.

  17. Madam, But I supply only using e-commerce platforms. My chocolate preparation when I sell within a state on Zomato, I charge 5% for preparation and 5% for delivery. When I sell my chocolate product Interstate on Amazon, I charge 18 % on product+delivery.
    Is my understanding correct?

    1. Uniform tax rate must be charged for the product and services. You cannot different rates for the same products and services. in case of sale within the state CGST and SGST must be charged and in case of an interstate sale, IGST must be charged.

  18. My GST registration is Tamil Nadu based. For the business purpose I travel to nearby states, so can I get input credit for hotel stays in other states?

    1. Query:-

      We have applied for surrender/ cancellation of GST number about 25 days back. Till date, it has not been canceled. Whether until cancellation we have to file the return.

  19. Madam, Thanks.

    I supply and deliver my chocolate preparation to customers (who have ordered on Zomato). Thus within the state, I supply as a delivery only restaurant. So should I charge 5% for preparation and delivery charge?

    When I supply to an interstate customer(placing order on Amazon), it is considered a product and I should charge 18% for product and delivery. Is the understanding correct?

    1. In case of non-e-commerce transactions, you are required to invoice the customer for the item supplied and charges (preparation and delivery) after adding GST as applicable to the item supplied and service provided.

  20. Madam,
    1) I am selling to customers using zomato/Amazon platform. Zomato and Amazon raise invoice on me for providing their services. Their Invoices show how much turnover is done and cut their commission. But for my turnover, I have to raise an invoice and pay GST on my turnover. B2C invoices are running in hundreds, which I am sure I don’t have to fill in GSTR 1. Then for total turnover in a month, on whom should I raise the invoice?

    Kindly guide me.

  21. I sell chocolate products online (zomato, Amazon etc.).
    when I sell on zomato – it is delivery only restaurant – GST 5% – No ITC
    When I sell on Amazon (Interstate) – it is sold as product – GST 18% – ITC allowed
    I am running my unit in rented place. The owner does not have GST no. so I don’t get GST taxed rent receipt.
    I have following queries. Your guidance will help me.
    1) Shd I approximately take ITC, based on assumption that x% will be sold on Amazon and y% will be sold on zomato when I purchase my Input material?(Because there will be only 1 invoice when I buy input material)
    2) Amazon and Zomato charge commission, convenience fees and also apply CGST, SGST. Such charges on Amazon, I can take ITC. Zomato, I can not take – Is it correct?
    3) Is there any way I can get some credit for the rent I am paying?
    4) I need to fill GSTR3B for paying tax, based on Invoices I receive from Zomato, Amazon for the month. Is it correct? Do I have to generate any Invoice?
    5) I sell my product online, so which GSTR form should I fill, GSTR1 or GSTR2. I should give details of only zomato and Amazon invoices or each transaction of each customer to be filled? I am confused here and seek your help.
    6) My turnover is about Rs. 20 lacs, so when should I file a return? (return means, GSTR1 or 2 or 3 – kindly let me know).
    Looking forward to your guidance. Kindly help.

    1. 1. Input can only be claimed proportionately on the item purchased which are sold through Amazon.
      2. You cannot take ITC on supply to the restaurant . you can take ITC on supplies to Amazon.
      3. If your owner is not registered then GST cannot be charged. So no credit will be allowed.
      4. Yes, you need to file GSTR 3b for sales. Also, you need to generate an invoice for sales made.
      5. Regular returns will be filed by you. – GSTR 1, 2, 3
      6. you can check the following post for due dates:

      1. Thanks.

        I have to raise sales invoice on whom, Zomato and Amazon? OR Can I use the invoice raised by them showing my turnover? I am confused about this. Also, can I charge flat 5% GST for Product+delivery for my sell on Zomato or I have to charge 5% on Product and 18 % on delivery charges?

        Your guidance will help me.


        1. Invoices will be raised by the person who supplies product/services if delivery is part and parcel of supply, then it will be chargeable at the same rate at which the item supplied is taxable.

  22. I had filed my GSTR 1 for July 17 & GSTR3 B also, but in the export invoice, the shipping bill no has been updated incorrectly in GSTR6 A. now anyone can explain me who can I get the refund of GST tax for July 17 on the export invoice. RFD01 has been started or any other way for my refund

  23. I collect GST as the service provider (stock sub broker). I also pay GST to some of my service providers (phone, internet, marketing & etc).

    Here I collect Rs 1 Lakh as GST from my clients & also pay GST Rs 30000 to my service providers.

    So finally to the government how much should I pat Rs 70000 (1 lakh – 30K)?
    If yes should we deduct & pay Rs 70K to government or Pay 1 Lakh & get the refund of 30K?

      1. Thanks for the reply.

        Claim means first pay full GST and then claim from Government
        First Deduct ITC and then pay remaining to Government?

  24. Hi, My business turnover is less than 1.5cr, about new rules for GST. I will fill return quarterly but my CA says that Form 3B is compulsory for every month until December, is right or wrong?

  25. Our LLP has GST registered & we are a startup. Initially, we thought we can complete 20 lakh turnover as we got a contract of 30 lakhs but due to some reasons we lost this contract & till now our turnover is around 3 lakh. We are not sure that we can complete this target before FY closing. Kindly tell me can we eligible to take back GST which we already paid to the government.

  26. Hi, I run a service sector company without any products & here we pay 18% GST. For me what is Input tax credit? Does GST paid for company Telephone/mobile bills, Electricity bills, Office Rent & etc act as Input tax credit?

    Please help.

      1. Hey, Thanks for ur great support…

  39. hi,
    Corporate office in Mumbai Mfg 2 unit and both in diff state, but mfg unit only make branch transfer to all state and branch issue sale bill to distributor that case all the branches,mfg unit, corporate office need to require CGST, SGST no. need to return filling at all branches and MfG unit and also in corporate office

    1. Branch Transfers are treated as normal sales in the course of business under GST. So tax rate as applicable on the said product has to be charged by branches making the transfer.

  40. Hello madam.

    Please clarify below points.

    1. Is there any provision to make inter unit transfer.
    2. Procedure for sample sent to in and out of country.
    3. Job work procedure for outside the country. Identify can be established on our products.


    1. 1. Inter unit transfer is treated as sales under GST. So normal provisions are applicable.

      2. Similar procedure as in case of normal sales made since sale as free sample is also a supply as per GST.

  41. Dear Sir / Madam,

    I have been registered with VAT as work contractor and filled GST registration with GST REG-25. Please tell me if I can opted for composition scheme and under composition scheme , can I participate for government tenders or not. Do I need to fill any other registration form for GST.

  42. Respected madam,
    I am investment adviser and operate through e-commerce operator. Though I have registered for GST as i am using e-commerce platform. But my turnover is below 20 lakhs so do i need file gst returns.

  43. Just to clarify I make the chocolate fudge in the cloud kitchen. Based on the demand, I get my product delivered to the customer.

  44. Shikhaji,
    I am not an e-commerce operator. I am on demand delivery restaurant selling chocolate fudge using online platform like zomato. I deliver product to the customer using delivery service like Jugnu, runnr etc. What GST rate should I apply.

  45. Whether individual having turnover under 20 lacs and is registered under GST, liable to furnish return? if yes then what is the time duration of filling return? monthly or quarterly?

    Note that its a proprietary firm.

    1. If the assessee opts for voluntary registration under GST then all the provisions relating to tax and return filing applies to him as applicable in case of a person who is mandatory required to get registered. So the monthly return requirements are applicable.

  46. Shikhaji,
    I sell chocolate fudge prepared in my kitchen unit, on demand delivery basis using e-commerce platform (zomato). Should I use SAC code 996331 as non AC restaurant service provider and apply 12% GST or use HSN code for chocolate product and apply 28% GST. Will be grateful for your guidance.

    1. Every e-commerce operator has to collect 1% under CGST Act and 1% under SGST Act and if an interstate transaction is being done, he will collect 2% of tax under IGST Act on the net values of taxable supplies. It means that any dealers/traders who are selling goods online through e commerce platforms like Flipkart, Amazon etc. would get their payment after deduction of 2% tax by e commerce operators. Thus TCS will be applicable.

  47. Respected Madam,

    We have an ongoing application for GST registration. We are unable to find the SAC code for a delivery only Non AC Restaurant.(selling food items online using e-platform). My turnover is less than Rs. 20 lacs, but since I am selling on e-platform, I have to register – right?

    As per our knowledge, this is the code for the same: 996331 with an applicable tax rate of 12%.

    However, we are only able to access the following code: 00441067 during registration. However, since it also covers AC restaurants, we wanted to know as to what will be the applicable tax rate if we go ahead and register under this code?

    Due to the following issue, we are unable to proceed with the GST application and get registered.

    We will be grateful if you can Kindly guide us on further steps.

    the expected turn over is hardly 5 lakhs per annum which is not applicable in GST.
    1, for starting as small proprietorship firm, which are the registrations i need to take?
    2. is commercial space mandatory for this business OR can i operate from home?
    *this is NOT an online buss or e comm operated or interstate buss. current account mandatory for this business as each book is sold for Rs 100 only to individual customers who are end users of this product, and each customer would be paying this amount of Rs 100 for the book as cash directly to me ?

  53. Hi,

  54. Madam, my name is pradip, belong to service industry (Shipping line). If service is provided in west Bengal to a Nepal party, does we raise invoice 5% IGST on freight to Nepal party but Nepal party will pay me in Indian current through DD/RTGS not usd/Remittance. 2nd question :- What is different between TAX INVOICE AND INVOICE IN GST RULES

    1. Tax invoice is issued in case of sale of taxable goods by a registered person. A supplier supplying exempted goods or service or a supplier who has opted for composition levy scheme has to issue a bill of supply instead of a tax invoice. A bill of supply is not eligible for claiming input tax credits.

  55. Dear Madam,

    We are requested to inform us the liabilities of GST is arise if we have take voluntary registration of intra state, my turnover is less than 20 lakhs and we have not take input tax credit on GST.

    We are requested please revert as earlier as possible.

    1. In case voluntary registration is opted then liability to collect tax and pay to govt arises. also the person is eligible to claim input for the tax paid on the purchases. filing of the monthly returns and annual return becomes mandatory failing which penalty and late fees provisions apply.all the provisions that are applicable on mandatory registration apply for voluntary registration.

  56. Dear Madam,
    I am not getting your reply. So have you stopped this service? I have just started this new business and I am confused, hence need your help.

    I am having delivery restaurant non AC for on line demand including chocolate fudge. I am listed on Zomato. For that I have to use SAC code 996331,
    However, I want to sell my dishes in a packaged product on e-retailer websites like Bigbasket also. Do I have to register for both SAC as well as HSN code? If yes, then how to file the return and how to do the accounting.

    Since I want MRP to be same across channels, the retail margin will be lower – is it correct?

  57. Under Tamilnadu VAT system, some trading companies are allowed to transport different goods on the basis of Form JJ showing the quantity and details of the goods being transported. They then sell these goods at different retail shops. The sale bill is prepared then and there on the basis of the orders received and tax paid accordingly. For such companies what is the procedure to be followed under GST?

  58. Dear Sir/Madam
    Please explain that matter many time for full fill stock summary in trans1 and which site.
    2.limit of maximum cash received from a registered firm and a unregistered person.please explain many rupees bill raised without form .

  59. Madam,
    I am selling food items on e-commerce platform. Turnover is below 50 lacs.
    1) if I go for composition scheme, I have to pay 5% but can not get ITC. – please confirm
    2) If I register as small restaurant with 12 % GST, how much will be CGST, SGST and cess for on-line selling? Or for online selling there is no CGST, SGST and cess and only IGST? Request for your guidance.
    For 12% GST, will I be able to claim ITC?
    3) What happens if there is mismatch between my invoice and supplier’s invoice?
    4) How will i get ITC, if my supplier does not register for GST?
    Request for your early reply, as I have to take decision whether I should register for GST or not.

  60. Madam,

    What is the eligibility limit of turnover for opting composition supply during transitional period.

  61. Dear Madam,
    I understand from that small business with turnover less than Rs. 20 lacs will not require GST regn. for selling on e-commerce portal. Also No TDS or TCS will be cut.
    Can you please confirm that this is correct.
    In that case, if we register later on, say in August, will I be able to claim input tax credits for supply invoices paid before GST registration as well as my VAT paid on purchase before June 30?
    Let me give example:
    Say, I have input invoice of 28th June, with 12.5% VAT. I have say input invoice of July 15, with 28% GST. Say I register for GST on 11th August. When I file for GST return, will I be able to claim input tax credit for input supplies dtd. 28th June and July 15, both?
    Upto what time period I will be able to carry forward the input tax credit? Is it 1 year from date of input invoice?

  62. when exporter exports their goods from Gujarat through Nhava sheva how to prepare the invoice.
    Does Merchant exporter have to execute the integrated bond and with whom.
    If bond is required then procedure/documents required to execute the bond

    1. Registered Person making zero rated supply shall be eligible to claim refund under the following option

      1) He may supply the goods or services under Bond or letter of undertaking subject to the conditions as may be prescribed without payment of IGST and claim refund of unutilised input tax credit.

      2) He may supply goods or services subject to condition as may be prescribed, on payment of IGST and claim refund of such tax paid.

  63. Dear Madam,
    My turnover is less than Rs. 20 lacs. I know that I don’t need GST registration. But if I do register for GST, can I get refund of TCS (tax collected at source, 1-2%). If yes, do I have to file “nil” return?
    Also can I get input tax credit, if I am not paying GST?
    I also have inventory, can input tax credit be carried forward? If yes, till what time carry forward is allowed?
    If I am selling my product on on-line platform, is it ok to be non-registered GST, as my turnover is below Rs. 20 lacs.
    If my turnover exceeds rs. 20 lacs, how do I transition out in compounding scheme (turnover below Rs. 50 lacs)?
    For compounding scheme should I take different registration in different states?

    1. If turnover is less than 20 lacs, registration is not compulsory. But if you paying TCS than registration is compulsory and you can claim cenvat of it. If you have paid tax on stock held on 30th June 2017, you have to file Form GST Trans -1 within 90 days from the implementation of the GST Act.

      For E-Com transaction registration is compulsory. If you selling goods or providing services from more the 1 state then you have to take different registration for every state.

    1. If turnover limit exceed the threshold limit for registration then registration required under GST. And if he is providing interstate transport service then there is requirement of registration.

  64. My query is related with registration under GST. If someone who is engaged in providing service like seminar, Motivation, and he is providing such service in other state for 1 day only whether he is liable required to get registration under that state.
    like if company (ahmedabad) engaged me (ahmedabad) to train their employee in Maharashtra then i need to take reg. their or not?

    We have a family business of gold jewellry manufacture from the gold provided by our customers themselves.
    Do we also need to register for GST?
    Our annual production of jewellry is around 1.00 Kg of Gold Jewellery.
    Annual Income would be around 3-4 Lakh/Annum.

  120. Department is claiming tax on advances recieved from customers as per Draft GST Law and same is reflecting in Section 12 of GSTR1. What happens in case the advance is returned back to the customer (in part or full) due to non-supply or short supply of goods or services ? I dont seem to find any column where the tax on this can be claimed back from the department by the seller.

      Credit note to be shown under credit/debit note table.
