01.10.2022: GSTN issued Advisory and help manuals for filing FORM TRAN 1/TRAN 2 to claim Transitional Credits

GSTN Advisory

The Goods and Service Tax Network (GSTN) has issued an Advisory dated 01.10.2022, regarding the re-opening of TRAN Forms to claim the Transitional ITC. 

The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India has provided a one-time opportunity to all the aggrieved taxpayers to file Form TRAN-1/TRAN-2 and claim their transitional input tax credit in GST system. In compliance of the Hon’ble court’s directive, the facility for filing TRAN-1/ TRAN-2 or revising the earlier filed TRAN-1/TRAN-2 on the GST common portal by aggrieved taxpayers have been made available by GSTN from 01.10.2022 till 30.11.2022.

All the aggrieved taxpayers who wish to file or revise TRAN-1/2 are hereby informed that the present process flow of TRAN filing is different from the filing process in the financial year 2017-18. As per the present flow the transitional credit availed by the taxpayer in TRAN-1/2 forms shall be verified by the jurisdictional tax officer before the credit entry is made in the respective ledgers. 

The TRAN filing process has been improved vis-à-vis previous instance and the user interface of the portal has been made simpler for the taxpayers to file their TRAN-1/2 forms. However, before attempting to file the TRAN forms, the taxpayers should note some important points as mentioned below which would help them in smooth filing of the forms. TRAN-2 form shall be made available only if the taxpayer has filed TRAN-1 and have made declaration in table 7 of TRAN-1. The taxpayer is requested to fill the complete details afresh in case they are revising the earlier filed TRAN-2 Form.

For smooth and easy filing of TRAN-1/2 a detailed advisory and a step by step, frame by frame guide has also been prepared.
