Interest on ITC reversal Pursuant to Notification

  • Contents

Respected Seniors & Experts,

Facts of the Case :

One of my client is builder/Developer.

He has taken ITC of GST on Inputs and added it to ECL.

Now Client has opted for payment of GST under New Scheme i.e. 1%/5% without ITC as per Notification No. 3/2019 dated 29-3-2019. (Selection of new scheme or continuing with Old scheme was optional)

By following that notification, my client had Reversed ITC appearing in the ECL as well as paid additional amount in Cash within the date prescribed in the notification.

His Case was taken up for GST Desk Audit. During audit Proceedings Officer is asking for Interest on ITC Reversal on amount appearing in ECL as well as Cash paid amount.

Querry :

1. Can officer ask for interest on ITC reversal as appearing in ECL pursuant to notification ?

2. Can officer ask for Interest on Amount paid in cash, which is also pursuant to notification ?

Pls guide.

Thank you

In my view, interest is not payable.

In case the reversal is being done as per the provisions of Annexure I & II to the Rate notification, within the time limit specified in that notification/Annexure, no interest would be liable.

"...before the due date for furnishing of the return for the month of September following the end of financial year 2018-19, in the following manner:"

This is the due date as per the said notification

I agree with my fellow colleagues.

What I want to know is the 'legal basis / reasoning' of Dept. to raise such types of demand?

These are ex facie views of mine and the same should not be construed as professional advice / suggestion.
