GSTR 9 Annual Return Form- Complications & Sorting Out Tips

There are many difficulties with Form GSTR 9 and bewilderment with its format which was released in September last year (2018). The most difficult problem with this Form is that the information would not get auto-populated in this Form, despite the fact that the same information has been filed previously in the monthly and quarterly akin periodic returns. To ease and simplify the process of filing an annual return, the GSTN revamped the form and thus sorted out most of the inconveniences. But still, there are some issues which remained unresolved. We are presenting those issues with some suggestions to sort them out.

GSTR 9 requires HSN which was not required while filing GSTR 3B: In the Annual Return Form GSTR- 9, HSN of inward supplies is needed although it was not needed while filing monthly GSTR 3B. The HSN summary is mandatory to be reported only for those HSN which accounts for the minimum 10% of the total inward supplies.

Suggestion: The reporting of HSN of inward supplies becomes irksome if not maintained previously. But we have a solution for this, GenGST fills the table 18 in the GSTR 9 automatically. Table 18 consists of HSN codes of the inward supplies which get automatically filled from the purchase register by GenGST software.

Details of ITC needs to be mentioned as Inputs/Input services/ Capital Goods: An isolated detail of availed ITC needs to be mentioned as Inputs/Input services/ Capital Goods in the Form GSTR 9.

Suggestion: The division of ITC availed as Inputs/Input services/ Capital Goods in the Form GSTR 9. Will take the assessee back to rework on the accounting entries because of the absence of these details in the periodic returns. Here, Gen GST facilitates the assessee to report this bifurcation with ease in the GSTR 9 while filing it.

Reporting of altered transactions: In the Annual Return Form GSTR- 9, we need to report the altered transactions of the FY 2017-18 filed in the current FY returns’ of April to September or till the annual return filing of FY 2017-18 i.e. 31 Dec 2018, whichever is earlier.

Suggestion: Gen GST has a feature of reconciliation and reporting through which it reconciles the altered transactions of FY 2017-18 filed in the current financial year and report the same in the annual return accordingly.
