Due Dates Modified
The Government has recently deferred the due date for filing GSTR 1 from the 11th of April to the 13th. Apart from this, the following are the due dates for filing GSTR 1 for the months of April, May and June 2019:
- April 2019 – 11th May 2019
- May 2019 – 11th June 2019
- June 2019 – 11th July 2019
It can be inferred from the above that the due dates for filing these returns fall on the 11th of every succeeding month of filing. The deadline for the filing quarterly GSTR 1 for the quarter of April-June is 31st July 2019.
Import of E-way Bill Data
It is essential for taxpayers to validate the data of their transactions before proceeding with the process of filing returns, as it saves time and unnecessary data entry. To cater to this purpose, the GST portal has now been integrated with the E-way Bill Portal (EWB). The integration enables the users to import the B2B and B2C invoice sections and the HSN-wise-summary of outward supplies section. Using these details, the taxpayers may verify the data and complete the filing.
The feature has been introduced considering the major data gaps between self-declared liability in Form GSTR 1 and Form GSTR 3B. A similar rule also applies to Input Tax Credit (ITC) claimed in GSTR 3B, as it could be compared with the credit available in Form GSTR 2A.
Data validation and comparison can be pursued through the following tabs of the portal:
- Liability other than export/reverse charge
- Liability due to reverse charge
- Liability due to export and SEZ supplies.
- ITC credit claimed and due
On a more precise note, the newly launched facility takes away the taxpayer’s need to make specifications connected with the e-way bill transactions specified in GSTR 3B as it allows the taxpayers to import data in Form GSTR 1 for all invoices for which the e-way bill has been generated. The particulars so imported would include the details of supplier, receiver, invoice number, the date of invoice, the type and quantity of goods, HSN Code, etc. These details are then transferred to the GST portal and classed into three categories to be used in GSTR 1 – namely, Business to Business Supplies (B2B), Business to Consumer (B2C) supplies (covering values of above Rs. 2.5 lakhs) and HSN (Harmonized System of Nomenclature Code for goods and services) wise consolidated supply data.
Tax Deposits to Government
To start with, non-government tax deductors are required to remit the tax deducted by them into Governmental accounts, i.e. the Income Tax Department, within the 7th of April, 2019. The payment must be deposited through the NSDL website, and the challan generated for such payment must be retained for filing quarterly returns.

A TDS certificate is issued by tax deductors to the concerned taxpayers so as to enable them to claim tax credit along with the applicable refunds. The due dates for issuing the certificate under section 194IA and 194IB is the 14th of April 2019.
Section 194IA of Income Tax Act governs the provisions concerning TDS on sale of immovable property. The relevant provisions mandate buyers to perform TDS at the rate of 1% at the time of payment of consideration to the seller. TDS provisions do not apply to an immovable property if the sale consideration is less than Rs. 50 lakhs or if the property is agricultural. This certificate must be issued in Form 16B.
Section 194IB is a newly inserted income tax provision that provides for the application of TDS on the rental payments of flats and apartments. The Act makes this provision applicable for individuals/HUF’s paying a monthly rent of above Rs. 50,000. If the landlord of such property is not in custody of a PAN, a deduction of 20% would be applicable.
