Single credit note for multiple invoices can be issued from now onwards!

De-linking of Credit Note/Debit Note from invoice, while reporting them in Form GSTR 1/GSTR 6 or filing Refund and single credit note for multiple invoices

Till date, it was mandatory to mention details of original invoice number, while reporting a Credit Note or Debit Note in GSTR-1 or GSTR-6 return.

Single credit note or debit note for multiple invoices can be issued now!

Now the taxpayers have been provided with a facility on the GST Portal to:

  • Single credit note or debit note can be issued in respect of multiple invoices and can be reported in GSTR-1 or GSTR-6.
  • Debit /Credit Notes can be issued with tax amount, but without any taxable value also i.e. if credit note or debit note is issued for difference in tax rate only, then note value can be reported as ‘Zero’. Only tax amount will have to be entered in such cases.
  • Choose the note supply type as Regular, SEZ, DE, Export etc., to identify the table to which such credit note or debit note pertains.
  • Indicate Place of Supply (POS) against each credit note or debit note, to identify the supply type i.e. Intra-State or Inter-State
  • Similar changes have been made while reporting amendments to credit note or debit note

Corresponding changes have also been made in refund module. Thus, while applying for refund, taxpayers can now report such credit notes or debit notes in statements (filed during filing the refund application) without mentioning the related invoice number. The taxpayer would be required to select the document type from a drop-down comprising of invoice/ debit note/ credit note.

The change has been provided while filing refund application of following types/ cases:

  • Refund for export of services with payment of tax
  • Refund on account of goods & services without payment of tax
  • Refund on account of supply of goods or services to SEZ with payment of tax
  • Refund on account of supply of goods or services to SEZ without payment of tax
  • Refund on account of Inverted duty structure
