GSTR 9 and 9C – Optional to Mandatory reporting in FY 2021-22

As we are into 1st week of December 2022, the said month assumes comparatively more importance from GST compliance perspective since 31 December 2022 is the due date to furnish GSTR 9 and GSTR 9C for FY 2021-22. In this article, we would mainly comment on applicability of GSTR 9 and 9C along-with key pre-requisites.

A. Applicability for FY 2021-22:

The applicability of GSTR 9 and GSTR 9C for FY 2021-22 is akin to that of FY 2020-21. However, for easy reference, we have reiterated the same below:

  • GSTR 9 is to be furnished by all taxpayers whose aggregate turnover exceeds INR 2 crore.
  • Conversely, GSTR 9 is exempt for taxpayers whose aggregate turnover is less than or equal to INR 2 crore.
  • Further, a self-certified statement in GSTR 9C should be furnished by taxpayers whose aggregate turnover exceeds INR 5 crore.
  • Accordingly, a taxpayer (whose aggregate turnover is between INR 2 crores and INR 5 crore) is required to only file GSTR 9.

B. Key Pre-Requisites:

  • Finalisation of books of accounts.
  • In case of multi-state GSTINs, extraction of state-wise trial balance whereby total of all states should be tallied with turnover/ input tax credit (‘ITC’) as per financials.
  • From outward perspective, transactional level reconciliation of GSTR 1 vs GSTR 3B vs books of accounts.
  • From inward perspective, transactional level reconciliation of GSTR 2B vs GSTR 3B vs books of accounts.
  • To track reporting of outward as well as inward supply transactions (along-with amendments) of FY 2021-22 in GSTR 1/ GSTR 3B of April 2022 to October 2022 tax periods filed till 30 November 2022.
  • To also extract details of ITC pertaining to FY 2020-21 availed in FY 2021-22 for reporting the same in GSTR 9C.
  • HSN wise outward supply details should be collated. (6 digit HSN for taxpayers with more than INR 5 crore turnover. 4 digit HSN for all B2B supplies by taxpayers having less than INR 5 crore turnover).
  • GST rate-wise break-up of turnover as well as liability reported in GSTR 9 should be prepared (along-with RCM transactions).
  • To verify GST data available on income tax website.

C. Key change (from optional to mandatory reporting) in FY 2021-22 GSTR 9 and 9C:
