wrong availment of ITC and reversal thereof

  • Contents

A dealer availed ITC amounting to ₹ 5.25 Crore of CGST in the month of July 2017 as input tax credit without receiving the goods and also availed the same amount as transitional credit in the month of Sept 2017 in respsect of stock held with the excise invoices. As the ITC credit availed in the month of July 2017 was not available therefore he was asked to reverse the same immediateley. But he reversed the same in the month of February 2018 from the IGST Credit. Moreover he utilized this amount (wrongly credit availed in July 2017) for payment of duty of output tax in the month of October and November 2017. Now the question is:

1. whether he can reverse the same from IGST account, Hoever he availed CGST credit.

2. whether interest is not leviable.

3. whether penalty is not leviable as he not only availed the ITC wrongly but utilized the same also for payment of output tax also by way of fraud and willful misstatement .

4. whether he should not deposit this amount in cash account as the ITC availed wrongly was has already been used. if It was was not been availed by him in July 2017, then he was required to pay duty from the cash ledger in the month of October and November. However in this case he used the ITC availalbe in the credit ledger, in fact which was not available to him

Query-wise reply is as under:-

(1) NO

(2) Yes. Now interest is chargeable even if taken but not utilized. You have taken and used both wrongly.

(3) Yes.

(4) The dealer will have to pay GST in cash as no credit was legally available to dealer.

In case the dealer deposits due GST along with interest on his own i.e. without show cause notice he will get the benefit of reduced penalty.

Dear Querist, It is suggested that such like query should be avoided in this forum as TMI is very popular and hence read by the department's officers alsom We cannot forget that TMI is perused by a large number of people who do not comment upon. They are silent visitors. And the number of such visitors is limitless.
