Input tax credit plays one of the important roles on GST portal especially for those who have to pay tax on their sale. By the help ITC they all the taxpayers can compensate their tax with the ITC on their purchases.
Earlier taxpayers weren’t introduced with the GST then they use to reconcile their input tax credit with their purchase register. But imagine what if the purchase have skipped to entered into the purchase register as result they will not be able to get their ITC as well. So as we have options to claim the INPUT TAX, so let’s discuss on those options which is GSTR2A, GSTR2B, purchase register.
Role of GSTR 2A
GSTR2A is the auto-draft purchase statement which is available on the GST portal of the every taxpayer, GSTR 2A is the reflection of all those sales which have made to the taxpayer so that they could the ITC, GSTR 2A accumulates all the details of purchase which have made by the different sellers of whole years.
Role of GSTR 2B
This is also the auto-draft purchase statement but in this statement the details of purchases are only available of the particular month before the date of 14th if any taxpayer filled their GSTR 1 after the date of 14th then they will get the detail on next month.
Role of purchase register
As we know if we use the GSTR 2A and GSTR 2B to claim the input tax credit then it will be permissible, although every permissible ITC are not allowed to claim. So the taxpayer always should opt for the system computed input tax credit. And they also should take care of all those purchase which is missing to be claim, that’s why they should reconcile their purchases with the recorded purchase register.
