After the issue of Provisional Refund (RFD-04) of GST on receipt of Refund Application, a GST Officer has to investigate and examine refund claim. The GST Officer issue one of the following order after investigation.
1st May 2021
Where the time limit to pass orders for rejecting any refund claim fully or partly falls between 15th April 2021 and 30th May 2021, it is extended. The extended time limit shall be later of two dates:
(1) 15 days after reply to notice OR
(2) 31st May 2021
27th June 2020
A full or part of the amount applied for refund may have been rejected via a notice issued by the authority. After completing the due proceedings, a final order must be issued within 60 days from the date of receipt of the refund application.
In case this time limit is expiring between 20th March to 30th August 2020, the last date to issue order shall be extended to the later of following dates:
1. 15 days from the date of receiving a reply from the applicant towards the notice, or
2. 31st August 2020
3rd April 2020
The time limit for completion or compliance has been extended to 30th June 2020, where the time limit/time limit/ date of expiry falls between the period from 20th March 2020 to 29th June 2020. It includes cases where the time limit to apply for GST refund in RFD-01 expires between 20th March 2020 and 29th June 2020.
A GST Officer has to process the refund application within 60 days from the date of submission of application. If the amount of refund is admissible an order will be issued in RFD-06 electronically. The Refund Sanction Order contains the following details:
The refund is processed by issuing RFD-05 (payment advice)
RFD-07 is issued by the GST officer in cases where refund claimed by the applicant is fully adjusted against any outstanding demands (PART A) or refund is withheld due to certain reasons (PART B). The order for complete adjustment/ withholding of refund contains the following details:
Order for Complete Adjustment of Sanctioned Refund (Part A)
Order for Withholding the Refund (Part B)
After appropriate processing, if a part or whole of the refund is inadmissible the GST Officer will issue RFD-08. RFD-08 is basically issued on the rejection of the application of refund. RFD-08 provides the reason for which the refund is proposed to be rejected. The notice also required the taxpayer to respond to it. The taxpayer has to provide reasons as to why the refund should not be rejected within 15 days or receipt of the notice. Here is how the notice looks like:
A taxpayer who receives the notice in RFD-08 has to reply to it in RFD-09 along with the documents as requested in the notice. When no refund is admissible the GST Officer directs the refund applicant to provide a reply in RFD-09. The reply to the notice contains the following details:
On receipt of the reply in RFD-09, the GST Officer has to assess whether refund should be issued or not.
The net amount of refund along with interest if (any) is issued by the GST Officer in RFD-05 and the refund is credited to the taxpayers bank account electronically. RFD-05 is also issued when an order is made under RFD-06 and the entire refund is to be credited to Consumer Welfare Fund.
