The system has started providing auto-populated GSTR-3B on the basis of GSTR-1 & GSTR-2B from the tax period of November 2020 onwards. In this auto-populated GSTR-3B, liability on account of inward supplies attracting reverse charge auto-populated in Table-3.1(d) is also drawn from GSTR-2B of the taxpayer for the said tax period. The values in GSTR 2B are auto populated from the GSTR-1 of the counter-parties making the supply.
It is noticed that the system is giving alert when the taxpayer revises the auto-populated values upward by 10% in table 3.1(d) which pertains to inward supplies attracting reverse charge. This alert is erroneous. The technical team is working to resolve the same at the earliest.
Meanwhile, the taxpayers may kindly continue to declare their correct liability in Table-3.1(d) pertaining to liability on inward supplies attracting reverse charge and proceed to file GSTR-3B.
Many taxpayers have raised complaints in situation where they are paying tax on reverse in case of import of service and there is no counter entry in GSTR 2B or the supplier of service has not submitted the invoice on GST portal on which receiver has to pay tax on reverse charge.
Also, rather than launching such system GSTN should first check the system themselves as this could panic any normal taxpayer, also the same should be followed while sending any message or alert to taxpayers.
