GST Refund

When the Goods and Services Tax or GST came into the origin, it also brought into place multiple systems and mechanisms for refunds. After that, multiple refund claims have been filed by taxpayers and a standardized form has been introduced. GST Refund is a process in which registered taxpayers can claim excess amount if any paid more than the GST Liability.

The cash flow and working capital requirements of manufacturers and exporters could be adversely affected if a refund is delayed. As a result, one of the intentions of the implementation of GST is to ensure that the refund process is smoother so that manufacturers and exporters do not face issues due to delays. By ensuring that the refund process is facilitated quickly, tax administration becomes more effective.

The GST regime has provisions relating to refunds, and it aims at streamlining and standardizing the procedures about refunds under GST. Therefore, a standardized form has been created to make claims for refunds. The procedure for making claims can be completed online on time.

Refund of IGST in export can be claimed only by reporting it in GSTR-1 and GSTR-3B. Refund of cash paid in excess of electronic cash ledger can be claimed by applying in form RFD-01.

Forms of refund

  •  Excess cash balance in electronic cash ledger
  •  Accumulated ITC due to zero-rated sales or inverted tax structure.
  •  Exports of commodities or services
  •  Deemed exports
  •  Refund arising from order, judgment, direction or decree of the Appellate Tribunal, Appellate Authority or any court of law
  •  Refund of taxes when embassies make purchases
  •  Excess payment because of an error
