Goods and Services Tax (GST) is now already more than 3 years old but we have completed GST audit of the first 9 months of GST implementation i.e. for period July 2017 to March 2018. The 2ns year annual return is in progress and not the 3rd year i.e. FY 2019-20 is ready. There were many concessions given during the first 2 financial years. There was a doubt in many minds whether the same will be extended to FY 2019-20 or not. Here is the solution. CBIC has issued notification no. 79/2020 – Central Tax dated 15.10.2020 amending CGST rules, 2017 wherein there are some options/concessions in filing Form GSTR 9 & 9C even for FY 2019-20. This article tried to brief such changes.


  1. Taxpayers to report numbers pertaining to that Financial Year only in Tables 4,5,6 & 7. The values pertaining to the preceding financial year shall not be reported here.
  1. With respect to OUTPUT - Concessions related to entering values

    3. Any Reversals in ITC can be shown in 7H instead of separately giving the break up in 7A to 7H
