Claimed IGST ITC instead of CGST and SGST, Goods and Services Tax - GST

Issue Id: - 116069

Claimed IGST ITC instead of CGST and SGST

  • Contents

In FY 17-18 taxable person has wrongly claimed IGST ITC ₹ 1,000/- in GSTR 3B instead of CGST ITC ₹ 500/- and SGST ITC ₹ 500/-. Whether wrongly claimed IGST ITC ₹ 1,000/- is to be paid through DRC 03 and actual CGST ITC ₹ 500/- and SGST ₹ 500/- not claimed in GSTR 3B will be lapsed? Any remedy.

In my view, ITC will not be hit by time limitation inasmuch as once ITC has been availed as IGST within prescribed time limit. Now the tax payer will reverse by way of cash payment through DRC 03 and after such reversal if that person avails ITC as CGST + SGST, that will be called, 'Re-credit'.

Further, Section 16(4) is not applicable to a claim for re-availing of any credit which has already been reversed.

ITC taken as IGST instead of CGST + SGST is a PROCEDURAL LAPSE.

It can be said that it is revenue neutral situation as claiming igst instead of cgst & sgst would not cause any revenue loss to the department. There would be some challenge when such wrongly Igst was used for payment of cgst/sgst (>50% of each component).

The querist has made up his mind to pay/reverse IGST of ₹ 1000/- through DRC-03.

IGST paid wrongly under CGST - a taxpayer is directed to pay tax under correct head and claim refund of the tax paid under incorrect head without interest

I think the querist has given just an example. There may be a huge amount involved.

Why charging tax in the invoice there may be confusion regarding whether IGST or CGST/SGST is applicable (depending up the place of supply) but there should be no confusion while availing credit (ITC). The buyer/ receiver of service or goods has to take credit of the kind of tax mentioned in the supplier's invoice.

If invoice shows CGST/SGST but the purchaser/receiver of service takes credit of IGST, the department may consider that such wrong ITC has been taken intentionally (may be modus operandi) in order to encash accumulated unutilized credit because of any reason. If mala fide intention is proved to this effect, such wrong credit will attract interest and penalty both.
