New Delhi: The Finance ministry has permitted businesses to rectify mistakes in their monthly returns — GSTR-3B — and adjust tax liability, a move that will help them file correct returns without fear of penalty.

Businesses have been finding it difficult to assess tax liability correctly after India moved to the GST regime with effect from July 1.

Industry bodies have been demanding relaxation of norms and easier compliance provisions to help businesses adapt to the new system of filing tax returns online.

The CBEC in a recent communication to field officer has said “as return in Form GSTR-3B does not contain provisions for reporting of differential figures for past month(s), the said figures may be reported on net basis along with the values for current month itself in appropriate tables...”.

It also said while making adjustments in the output tax liability or input tax credit, there can be no negative entries in GSTR-3B.

The amount remaining for adjustment, if any, may be adjusted in the returns in Form GSTR-3B of subsequent months and, in cases where such adjustment is not feasible, refund may be claimed, CBEC said.

As per the new circular, Rajat Mohan, partner in AMRG and Associates said “all rectifications can be made in the same month’s GSTR3B and GSTR -1”
