The GSTR-4A is a purchase-related tax return for composition dealers. It is generated automatically on the GSTN portal based on the information uploaded by the suppliers against the GSTIN of the composition dealer.
Form GSTR-4A is an auto-drafted document which is generated on the basis of data submitted/filed in Form GSTR-1/5 and filed Form GSTR-7 of the taxpayers, where composition dealer is the recipient. Form GSTR-4A is a view only document and the Composition dealer cannot take any action in Form GSTR-4A. It is a view only record of all the invoices received from the various suppliers in a particular tax period
Various sections of Form GSTR-4A are-
a. 3A, 3B(B2B Invoices): This section shows all the inward supplies received from a registered supplier.
b. 4(Credit/Debit Notes): This section displays the Credit/Debit notes added by the supplier in their respective returns.
c. 4 (Amendments to B2B Invoices): This section displays the invoices which the suppliers have amended in their returns.
d. 4 (Amendments to Credit/Debit Notes): This section displays the amendments to Credit/Debit notes done by the supplier in their respective returns.
GSTR 4A is auto-populated only when the supplier uploads data to his GSTR-1/5. For example: If the composition dealer has filed his GSTR-4 form and the Supplier is filing his GSTR-1/5 form post that for the corresponding tax period, in such a case Form GSTR-1/5 data will be auto-populated to the next period of Form GSTR-4A.
