transitional credit carried forward in gst, Goods and Services Tax - GST

transitional credit carried forward in gst

  • Contents

we had a balance of central excise credit which we carried forward in CGST in the TRANS -1 form. We did not utilize the CGST balance due to an ongoing litigation in the matter. Eventually , we reveresed the CGST credit in GSTR- 3B. Now the department states that we will have to pay the whole credit in cash as ongoing credit cannot be considered due change in regime from central excise to GST... Please guide.

I do not agree with the department's view point. Once credit balance has been properly carried forward in TRANS-1, thereafter, no question of cash payment. You have not mis-utilized in any way. Rather you have reversed the same due to ongoing litigation and this proves that you have acted in a bona fide manner.

This is my view and interpretation.

The credit is not utilised by you. The reversal is as good as payment. Separate payment would mean double payment. I agree with Sri Kasturi Sir's view.

"Credit reversed amounts to credit not taken".It has been held by a plethora of Courts. One case law based on the judgement of Supreme Court, various High Courts is appended below:-

2017 (358) E.L.T. 825 (Tri. - Ahmd.) = 2017 (4) TMI 217 - CESTAT AHMEDABAD COMMISSIONER OF C. EX. & S.T., SURAT-II Versus ATUL LTD.

​​​​​​​Though above case laws pertain to pre-GST period, these are equally relevant and applicable to the GST regime.

Recently, I have read a case law on this issue pertaining to GST regime which will take time to trace out.

Sh.Sanjay Malhotra CS,

Yes, Sir. Board's circular mentioned by you is more relevant and forceful as compared to case laws pertaining to pre-GST era.
