Demerger of business, Goods and Services Tax - GST

Demerger of business

  • Contents

Dear Experts

I have a client where demerger took place during FY 2019-20 but the appointed date of demerger was 1st April 2018 and order of NCLT was passed in August 2019.

Let's suppose there is company A whose major portion of business is demerged to new entity B. The audited balance sheet of the company was signed in November 2019 for FY 2018-19 however NCLT already passed the order in August 2019 so the balance sheet was prepared after demerger in the name of company A and B. But all GST returns for FY 2018-19 were filed in the GST no. of company A.

My query is that how we will file the GSTR-9 and 9C for FY 2018-19 because in GST returns the entire income was disclosed in Company A however in finacial statements it is divided between A and B as per order of demerger.

Please help. It is very urgent.

Sir, the transaction was already done in Company A during FY 2018-19. All GST returns are under the GSTIN of Company A. So in my view, you should file GSTR-9 & 9C under GSTIN of Company A. The demerger happened in FY 2019-20. So in my view, there should not be an issue for FY 2018-19. Even if there is any with respect to Financial statement, it will form part of reconciliation to show it to the auditor.

I concur with the views of Sh Ganeshan Kalyani Ji.
