GST ANX-2 Inward Supplies Annexure for GST RET-1

Applicable under the new tax collection system, there will be one main return i.e. Form GST RET-1 and two Annexures Form GST ANX 1 and GST ANX 2 to be filed by businesses. Monthly compliance is mandatory for such returns excluding the small taxpayers (whose annual turnover is up to 5 Crores) who can go for quarterly return filing.

About GST ANX-2

Meant especially for all inward supplies, Form GST ANX 2 is the Annexure of the main return form GST RET-1. The supply recipients approve the details by accepting the documents. Depending on the situation, they have the option to reject the improper documents or keep them pending to work upon later. Acceptance by the recipient denotes that the entries done by the supplier in Form GST ANX-1 are correct.

Composition of Form GST ANX 2

Following are the details to be filled in GST ANX 2:

1. GSTIN: A taxpayer needs to input the GSTIN.

General Guidelines for filing FORM GST ANX-2

  • The supplier needs to upload details in Form GST ANX-1 which will get automatically uploaded in GST ANX 2.
  • Details being auto-loaded in GST ANX-2 are already available for the recipient to accept, reject or keep it pending depending on the data.
  • If the documents get rejected by the recipient then the supplier can make corrections in the documents via his form GST ANX 1.
  • Document quoted pending by the recipient means the document is to be treated later thus the Input Tax Credit on these untreated documents will not be visible in Form GST RET 1 (the main return form).
  • The supplier cannot amend pending invoices until they are rejected by the recipient.
  • The status of the supplier’s return (filed or not) will be visible to the recipient in form GST ANX 2. Though this will not affect the input tax credit availability of the recipient.
  • FORM GST ANX-2 will be deemed filed based upon the filing of the main return i.e. form GST RET 1 relating to the particular tax period.
  • The supplier has filed GST ANX 1 but has not filed his returns for the two consecutive times previously, then the recipient will be unable to take credit on these documents (as same is available in his form GST ANX 2) but he has the option to keep the document pending or reject the document.
