What are the transactions i need to show in the Point F of Part II of FORM GSTR – 9C, “Trade Discounts accounted for in the audited Annual Financial Statement but are not permissible under GST” ?
There could be some business cases where the discount being offered is not know at the time of supply or the discount could not be established to particular invoices or input tax credit is not reversed on the trade discount offered or it is not mentioned on the tax invoice. In all the above cases, the trade discount will be part of the financial statements but not part of the GST Returns.
In From GSTR – 9C, what is “Adjustments in turnover due to foreign exchange fluctuations” and in which cases do i need to fill it?
It has to be filled by all taxpayers who have outward supplies in foreign currency and where they issue a tax invoice as well as a commercial invoice. It can be in case of exporters or supplies to SEZ’s where they issue a tax invoice with payment of duty i.e as per the GST at the time of removal of goods and for the foreign customer, a commercial invoice is issued on a subsequent date. The different dates can some time result in different exchange rates being used. This could cause a difference reported in the financial statements and in the GST Returns, for this reason, it has to be mentioned in the Form GSTR – 9C.
