What is Table 6A of Form GSTR1 ?

An independent tab known as Table 6A of Form GSTR1 has been established in the recent times. The aim behind this was to assist exporters to claim GST refund.

Table 6A of Form GSTR1

Recently Table 6A of Form GSTR1 has been launched in order to facilitate exporters in claiming GST reimbursement on goods exported out of the country. The duration of GST return filing is yet to be decided by the authorities. However, the due dates for the month of July and the GSTR 2 and GSTR 3 returns has been expanded .The exporters will be able to claim the GST refund on goods exported outside the nation by filing GSTR 1 return. Additionally, the details of all the exports completed during the specific month have to be present as well. As far as the GSTR 3B is concerned, the return profiled by all taxpayers each month is devoid of invoice level data. In addition, the GSTR 1 return outstanding date for the months of August, September and October have not been pronounced till now. As a result, it was difficult for exporters to claim GST refunds. Henceforth, the Government has established Table 6A of Form GSTR 1 to reduce the dilemma of exporters and speed up the GST refund for exports.

Eligibility to file Table 6A of Form GSTR1

The Table 6A of Form GSTR1 is filed by any entity who at the present or in the past was involved in exporting goods from India. In that case, they are eligible to claim GST refund. In case an individual did not export any goods ever since the introduction of GST in the month of July 2017, then it is not necessary for the individual to file Table 6A of GSTR1. Furthermore, it is not necessary to file NIL return.

Details filed under Table 6A of Form GSTR 1

All the necessary details of all exports can be filed by the exporter under the Table 6A of Form GSTR1. This can be done for the present year for months of August, September, and October. On successful completion of filing all the details of export invoices on the GST Portal under Table 6A, the particulars will be coordinated with the shipping bill report given to the Customs Department as well as with the amount mentioned in GSTR 3B return. When the information is verified and if it is equivalent to the information provided, then GST refund on exports will be instantly administered by the Government.
