Balance in electronic cash ledger, Goods and Services Tax - GST

Balance in electronic cash ledger

  • Contents

Sir/Madam,

after calculating March month liability,a company paid the amount in cash on 31st March.

Inadvertently, the cash payment was shown as ITC and GSTR-3B was filed. After 21 months the mistake was realized and DRC-03 with interest @ 18%, was filed voluntarily appropriating the balance in cash ledger which was not appropriated for 21 months.

Now in SCN, the interest is demanded for the 21 months @ 24%.

The query is, since the cash payment was genuine and appropriation was delayed, and amount was not utilised throughout the period of 21 months, can we escape from interest liability ,

Kindly clarify,

Umesh Babu

Chances are very remote, there is no explicit exclusion like ITC is made available in Sec 50,Kindly ref Judgement M/s Narsingh Ispat Limited through its Director Sri Ajay Kumar Singh - 2022 (3) TMI 1047 - JHARKHAND HIGH COURT --- --- Petitioner [All cases] IN THE HIGH COURT OF JHARKHAND AT RANCHI A very good judgement on levy of interest u/s 50 of the CGST / SGST Act. and use prov- Explanation( a) to sec 49(9) as a defense.

In such a situation, you have not caused any loss of revenue. Interest for what ? This is all procedural lapse nothing else. Issuance of SCN is not unexpected. Such SCN would not sustain at first stroke in the Court.

Interest even if liable should be demanded only @18 percent.

Also no interest liabilty is some relief which you can get in courts . But I agree with Kasturi sir that there is no loss of revenue to government. I am pretty sure there will be a decision of the court on this matter in future. So consider paying interest on protest @18 percent and go for refund when any favourable order comes.

If at all interest is payable it will be 18%.

Please see if you got SCN denying ITC (which can technically invite interest @ 24% p.a.) or only issue is 'delay in payment of taxes' (which can technically invite interest @ 18% p.a.).

Is there any proposal for penalty in the SCN?

Depending upon type of issues raised in SCN as well as submissions made by you during enquiry, read with how Form DRC-03 filed by you, one needs to take a call about how to go defending your case.
