An assessee is required to maintain proper record of raw material and finished goods under Sections 56 and 57 of CGST Act. If not maintained properly,

(i) Penalty of ₹ 25,000/- is imposable under Section 125 of CGST Act.

(ii) Penalty of ₹ 10000/- under Section 122 (xvi) of CGST Act.

Also see Board's Flyer No.14 dated 1.1.18.

You know tax is on 'supply' of goods (finished). Actually no evasion of GST takes place by way of improper maintenance of records of goods and raw material. But it is a very serious lapse and will invite penalty. Such lapse cannot be taken lightly.

This is not serious lapses, since the stock (purchase) and consumptions are continuing activities 24 X7 and it is properly maintained in SAP . However the gap is arising due to consumption and normal loss booking.

and Management has carried Physical verification and found excess stock over books. hence same will be accounted in books.

Dear Querist,

You may or may not agree. It is your prerogative. I have explained the legal aspect. If you rectify your error before it is detected by the department, it is O.K. What I want to say that Govt. has made provision for imposition of penalty on account of procedural lapse also. It is not in dispute that in this scenario there is no loss of revenue to Govt.

The difference will create doubts in the mind of the officer. He may dive deep in the accounting and physical existence of the goods. Actually both physical stock and books stock should be same. It cannot be different.

Sri Kasturi Sir mentioned the Penalty of CGST Act. Equal penalty is there in SGST Act as well. General Penalty can anyway be applied for contravention of any provision of GST provision.

Any non compliance under the provisions of GST Laws will attract penal actions. Therefore, it is required to have books of accounts reconciled as per the requirement of GST Laws, Income Tax Act and Company Laws.
