A major concern for businesses registered under GST is to make sure they don’t lose out on the tax benefits and input credits of the old regime. These taxes may have been paid while purchasing, inputs, raw materials, semi-finished goods, finished goods, or on materials sent to job worker. For most businesses these taxes are available as input credit on 30th July. And moving these to GST regime is important to take benefit of them.

The CBEC has released transition rules and formats and with the help of these, businesses can move credit of old regime to GST.

How to claim ITC on old stock? Which Form to choose?

Any business having a closing stock -whether registered or not before GST, will be entitled to claim credit of tax paid under pre-GST regime. This claim of ITC also depends on few conditions which we will discuss further.

ITC claim on Stock and Transition Forms, TRAN-1, TRAN-2

Broad aspects of Transition to GST

Transition aspects mainly relate to

  • Input Tax Credit of the old regime that you want to claim in the new regime (report in TRAN-1)
  • Avoid any disruption to material sent to job workers ( report in TRAN-1)
  • Report agent principal dealing and dispatch of goods, works contracts (report in TRAN -1)
  • Tax refunds and claims under the old regime (not reportable in TRAN -1 or TRAN -2)

Things to remember for Transition to GST

– Transition forms must be filed for each GSTIN separately.

– Any credit that you want to carry forward from the old regime must be eligible credit under GST as well.

– Accumulated credits of old regime can be taken to GST. This is allowed only when you have filed past six months returns under the old regime. So you must file old returns of VAT/ Excise/ Service Tax properly.

– Any central taxes and duties such as Excise and Service tax will be carried forward as CGST

– Any state taxes such as VAT will be carried forward as SGST

Here’s a simple recap of what these forms are –

‘C Forms’ – C Form is issued by a registered dealer (purchaser) to a registered seller when an interstate sale is made. When purchases are made under a C form Central Sales Tax (CST) is 2%.

 ‘F Forms’ – Are used for making branch transfers without paying tax.  F Form is issued by the branch office/consignment agent receiving goods as branch/stock transfer to its head office/principal who is sending the goods. The Head office/Principal uses F forms to prove that goods sent are stock/branch transfer and not sale. 

‘H/I Forms’ – used in case of Exports for local purchases made without payment of tax. This Form is issued when the buyer is an exporter and is purchasing inter state for exports. If the exporter/buyer issues H form, the seller is not required to charge or pay any CST on the transaction. 

For each of these forms provide the following information –

TIN of Issuer

Name of Issuer

Serial Number of Form

Amount

Applicable VAT Rate

c) Tax credit for State/UT Tax for pending C Forms, F Forms and H/I Forms (For all registrations on the same PAN and in the same State) – If you are registered under any State VAT & if you have any pending C-Form/F Form/H or I Form then you are required to pay the differential tax as you are not eligible to charge concessional CST rate.Such Differential tax payable will be deducted from the input tax credit balance available in the last return filed by you & the remaining credit will be carried forward under GST Regime.

  4. In column 4, 6 & 9 the differential tax on its respective Turnover must be entered (Eg: if concessional CST is 2% & VAT is 14.5 % , then the differential tax rate is 12.5% ).This will be deducted from the closing balance of input tax credit in the return & hence will be deducted from Column 2
  5. In column 7 the ITC reversed by you related to column 3 & 5 must be entered.This amount will be eligible to be carried forward as ITC under GST & hence will be added to the amount in column 2
  6. Column 10 is calculated as follows :- Column No 2 – (4+6-7+9).This is the balance ITC of VAT/Entry tax that will be transferred to you under GST regime.

ITC claim on stock and transition forms, TRAN-1, TRAN-2

The registered person under GST will be allowed the credit of tax paid on purchase of goods and held in closing stock as on the appointed date. Since, it is not in in possession of an invoice or other documents evidencing payment of taxes under VAT Act, Central Excise, credit will be allowed based on rate of IGST, CGST and SGST of the closing stock under GST according to the HSN code.

When the taxpayer sells the goods held as closing stock as on 30th June, he will have to first pay the appropriate taxes on such outward supply and then he will be allowed the ITC based on the rate of tax paid for that outward supply.

 

ITC claim on stock and transition forms, TRAN-1, TRAN-2

For Example:

Mr. Avinash holds the following goods as closing stock as on 30th June

1000 units of Umbrellas

Now on 15th July he sells 100 umbrellas for Rs.100 each on which IGST is applicable at 12%

Taxable value- Rs. 10,000/-

Tax amount- Rs. 1,200/-

Now, since the rate of IGST is less than 18%, ITC will be allowed at 20%

Hence, ITC allowed will be 20% of Rs 1,200/- = Rs 240/-
