Addressing an important request from NASSCOM and the technology industry, the GST portal has recently allowed companies to file consolidated refund claims for multiple tax period instead on monthly refund claim. You would recall that through a circular (37/11/2018 – GST dated March 15, 2018), it was clarified that an exporter, at his option, may file refund claims for one calendar month/ quarter or by clubbing successive calendar months/ quarters. However this functionality was not enabled in the GSTIN portal. The GSTIN portal has now been enabled filing of GST refund clubbing multiple months/quarter in a financial year. The screen shot of the same is provided below:
Further, an advisory has been uploaded on the GST portal providing important clarifications. Please access the same here: https://www.gst.gov.in/newsandupdates/read/228. Do share your feedback if any.
