Downloading document-wise details of Table 8A of Form GSTR-9


1. A facility has been provided to the taxpayers to download document wise details of Table 8A of Form GSTR-9, from the portal in excel format. This can be done by using a new option of ‘Document wise Details of Table 8A’ given on the GSTR-9 dashboard, from Financial Year 2018-19 onwards. This will help the taxpayer in reconciling the values appearing in Table 8A of Form GSTR 9, thus facilitate filling the Form GSTR 9.

2. Table 8A of Form GSTR 9 is populated on basis of documents in filed Form GSTR-1 or Form GSTR-5 of the supplier. Thus, all documents which are present in GSTR-2A (Table 3 & 5), will not be available here, as documents which are in uploaded or submitted stage in Form GSTR 1 or 5, are not accounted for credit in table 8A of Form GSTR 9.

● Figures of Input Tax Credit (ITC), as pre-populated in table 8A of GSTR-9, not matching with the figures, as appearing in their Form GSTR-2A;
