GST TRAN-2 return is filed by a dealers or trader that are currently registered under GST but were previously unregistered VAT/Excise.
As a matter of fact, these dealers will not have invoices with VAT or excise to support the claim. The Government has given a provision for transitional input for such dealers in GST TRAN-2.
Please note that GST TRAN-2 will not be filed by manufacturers or service providers.
Ruling of Transitional Provision
Those dealer/traders opting for GST TRAN-2 will file this return at the end of every month
A dealer/trader should match the following conditions:
Goods in stock are not NIL rated or fall under the exempted category under VAT and Excise.
This scheme will be operative for 6 months only starting from the 1st of July 2017 and 31st December 2017.
Such stock has to be cleared within this duration of 6 months to claim the credit.
Documentary proof has to be presented to prove the procurement of such goods.
Such stock of goods on which the credit is claimed must be stored in a way that it can be easily identified.
We have created a replica of GST TRAN-2 form in Excel to help businesses claim the credit on the pre-GST stock.
Like TRAN-1, this form will also be filled online on GSTN Portal.
Let us discuss the contents of this template in detail.
