To make this process faster the software can be used to consolidate GSTR 1, GSTR 3b and GSTR 2A within seconds. It can also do “GSTR 1 vs GSTR 3b GSTR 2A vs GSTR 9” and “GSTR 2A - GSTR 3b Invoice wise ITC Matching” very fast.
Scrutiny of GST Returns
Scrutiny of GST Returns (GSTR 1 vs 3b vs 2A vs 9) will now take less than a minute. Just upload all the files (12 GSTR-1 excel files, 12 GSTR-3b pdf files, 12 GSTR-2A excel files and 1 GSTR-9 Excel file) and click reconcile followed by download.
It takes care of things Advances, Amendments, Credit Debit Notes etc. and compares with the taxes paid only after getting net of all calculations. You need to provide GSTR-9 for this calculation.
Let us now checkout the main part of the software that is GST Doctor ITC Matching Software. How to use it and is what situations to use it.
GST Doctor ITC Matching Software
The software is specially designed to match GST ITC data invoice-wise. We can match any combination of files depending on what kind of results we want. Here are some examples:
|S.No.||What to Match||Why to Match|
|1||ITC Data vs GSTR 2A/2B (B2B and Debit Notes)||For ITC Verification (Not in 2A, Duplicate, Tax Mismatch etc.)|
|2||ITC Data vs GSTR 2A/2B Credit Notes||For finding out invoices on which ITC was taken and credit note was also issued. (For Reversals)|
|3||Imports Data vs GSTR 2A/2B (IMPG*)||For matching BOEs with auto populated data and greening if the IGST Value is taken as credit not Customs Duty (Look for Tax Mismatch)|
|4||ITC Reversal Data vs ITC Objection||If the Taxpayer has already reversed ITC through DRC-03 or GSTR 3B, get the invoice wise data and match with our ITC Objection (Not in 2A, Tax Mismatch, Duplicate etc. from S. No. 1 and other Blocked Credits under section 17(5).|
|5||ITC Reversal Data vs 2A Credit Notes||After selecting the credit notes for reversals (from S. No. 2) match with already reversed ITC Data (DRC-03 or GSTR 3B)|
|6||GSTR 2A RCM Invoices vs RCM Payment in 3B||If GSTR 2A populated RCM is more than what is shown in GSTR 3B, we can match the data to find out which invoices were left out and ask clarification regarding the same.|
Input File Format for ITC Matching
The software accepts Two Excel Files in .xls and .xlsx format for matching. The files must have 6 columns in this order-
|GSTIN OF SUPPLIER||INVOICE NO.||INVOICE DATE||IGST||CGST||SGST|
Please covert both files ITC Data and GSTR 2A in this format by deleting unnecessary columns and upload in the software.
Note: If you are using it to match Imports Data use GSTIN as AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA (15 times A) in place of GSTIN and BOE No. and BOE Date in in place of Invoice No. and Invoice Date. Put IGST at IGST column and put CGST, SGST as 0, 0. Do this in both the files Imports Data as well as 2A IMPG
Matching Result Format
Once the matching is complete and result file is downloaded, Each ITC entry has the “matching flag” and the corresponding matched data from 2A is shown right next to it for easy comparison.
|Fully Matched||No Action Required|
|GSTIN Mismatch||No Action Required|
|Invoice No Mismatch||No Action Required|
|Invoice Date Mismatch||No Action Required|
|Tax Mismatch||If ITC > 2A, ask for reversal|
else if ITC < 2A OK (maybe some part of invoice is blocked credit)
|Tax Head Mismatch||CGST + SGST has been taken as IGST or vice versa, take appropriate action|
|Weak Match||Check manually and verify if it should be allowed.|
|Debit Entry||Negative entries, reversal made in books, use it for Reversal Matching later|
|Duplicate Invoices||Invoices that are taken twice, ask for reversal|
|Negligible||Invoices with tax less than 5 Rs|
|Not in 2A||Invoices not reflecting in GSTR-2A of the Taxpayer, ask for reversal|
Similarly, for invoices in GSTR-2A one flag is assigned in MATCHED? column “Y” or “N”, where “Y” means it has been matched with some ITC Invoice and “N” means it has still not been matched and can be matched manually afterwards.
Pivot ITC Invoices – Check this box if the supplier has taken ITC on same invoice in multiple parts. It will merge all the invoices having same GSTIN, Invoice No and Invoice Date placed one after another. Usually, it is recommended to green this box.
Faster Matching – Check this box if the matching data is large. It will not provide GSTIN-WISE summery.
GSTR 1 Consolidator
Month-wise GSTR-1 returns can be downloaded from GST App Store and browsed into this software for consolidation.
Extra Features: Other than generating a consolidated GSTR 1, the software also greens whether old invoices are uploaded in the later month return. (e.g. Invoice dated 25/Jan/2022 shown in Mar-2022 GSTR-1) such invoices can be filtered using remarks column and Interest can be demanded for such invoices.
GSTR 2A Consolidator
Like GSTR-1, month-wise GSTR-2A downloaded from GST App Store/Taxpayer Portal can also be consolidated.
Extra Features: After consolidating GSTR-2A, the software will filter the Invoices marked as RCM Invoices and give them in separate sheet that can be matched with the RCM payment shown in 3B.
GSTR 3b Consolidator
Just like GSTR-1 and GSTR 2A, month-wise GSTR-3b pdf downloaded from GST App Store can also be consolidated.
Extra Features: While consolidating GSTR-3b the software also calculates Interest on Cash Portion (Forward Charge + RCM) for late filing of 3b considering extended due date for 3b.
