  • Direct recovery of GST in case of discrepancies between GSTR-1 and GSTR-3B

    As an outcome of the recent 48th GST council meeting, the manner of dealing with difference in liability reported in statement of outward supplies (GSTR-1) and that reported in return (GSTR-3B) has been codified in the form of Rule 88C of the CGST Rules. This rule is likely to affect the taxpayers in case of any discrepancies between the supplies reported in GSTR-1 and GSTR-3B. The onus will be on the taxpayers to ensure compliance.

    The first question that arises in mind is whether this rule has got a statutory backing. The answer to this question apparently seems to be a yes. Section 75(12) of the CGST Act provides for direct recovery of unpaid or short-paid self-assessed tax as per GSTR-3B without following the demand procedures laid down under the CGST Act.
