GST Errors

The Goods and Service Tax Network (GSTN) has unveiled exhaustive guidelines on 05/11/2020 for the taxpayers regarding prominent GST errors on GSTN portal. The guide also enclosed the solution for the probable errors that taxpayers encounter now and then.

These problems are generally associated with refunds, registration, appeals, DRC-03, appeal, and payment. GSTN is a non-government, non-profit organization which manages and controls the IT system of the GST portal.

The GSTN while addressing issues in the new registration mentioned about the GST errors that occur in the form of a message (‘pending for Clarification’) during the generation of ARN status. Fortunately, the concerned authority has responded to the problem by providing Show Cause Notice against the application for GST registration. This notice is needed to be reviewed, filled, and submitted by the taxpayer accordingly.

What are the Core Issues addressed in the Guide?

While tackling the issues with registration, the network has come across new registrations, cancellation of registration, application issue, GSTN-MCA integration, and changes in basic the non-core fields. The GSTN has encountered anomalies with GSTR 1, GSTR 3B, GSTR 2A, GSTR 9, GSTR 9A, GSTR 6, and ITC. Apart from that network also came across an issue related to GST and filing refund application.

The network while sorting out the solution for the refund problem dealt with refund-related issues that usually become inevitable while submitting or saving the application.
