In our previous blog How to File Form GST TRAN-1: Part 3, we discussed about the applicability of Table 7 of Form GST TRAN-1 and specifically discussed on how to capture the details in table 7(A) of Form GST TRAN-1. In this blog we will discuss:

  • When 7(b) Form GST TRAN-1 is applicable?
  • How to file Form GST TRAN-1 7(b) ?

When is 7(b) Form GST TRAN-1 applicable?

The table 7(b) of Form GST TRAN-1 is applicable only to those businesses where duties and taxes on input or input services have been paid by the vendor in earlier regime. But those goods or services are received on or after implementation of GST, that is, after 1st July, 2017. Basically, this section is for claiming the tax paid on goods-in-transit.

For example, supplier has billed the goods on 30th June, 2017 but you have received it on or after July. For you to claim the tax credit of CENVAT, including Service Tax or VAT paid on such goods, you need to ensure that the invoice or any other tax payment documents are recorded in the books of accounts within 30 days from the date of implementation of GST.
