The GST portal has enabled a new window for claiming TDS/TCS credits while filing GST returns. A taxpayer can accept or reject these credits, after which they get moved to the cash ledger. These credits can then be used for making GST payments. This function helps the taxpayers in identifying the credits available and taking the required action.
‘TDS/TCS credit received’ tab is provided for all taxpayers from whom tax has been deducted or collected at source by registered TDS deductors/TCS collectors respectively. After deduction/collection all the deductors/collectors are required to file GSTR-7 or GSTR-8 respectively before 10th of the succeeding month. As far as deductee is concerned, the deductee needs to accept/reject the TDS/TCS credit on the GST portal by filing ‘TDS/TCS Credit Received’ tab.
Thus, for availing GST TDS/TCS deducted by the deductors/collectors all the deductee need to file ‘TDS/TCS credit received’ tab on the portal. The deducted amount will appear in Cash Ledger which can be used for payment of balance amount of tax after setting off with the Input tax credit.
