Followings points needs to be considered to take care of new changes in the forms and annual return for GSTR-9/9C :-
  • Figures would be auto populated from GSTR-1 and GSTR-3B in GSTR-9 only for Reference Purpose.
  • For any difference in supplies shown in GSTR-1 or GSTR-3B from actuals, please update figures manually in Part II (B2B, B2C etc) and update tax payable amount manually in Table-9 of GSTR-9.
  • The payable difference seen after above updating can be paid through DRC-03 and if already paid , credit can be taken through RFD-01.
  • If paid as above, then there is no requirement to show the same differential amount in GSTR-9C in table “auditor recommendation”.
