ITC 01 Form – Claim ITC on New GST Registration


    Regular businesses would have inputs, capital goods, and finished products stocked at their location on the day they registered for GST. Before acquiring GST registration, the buyer cannot claim the GST paid on such purchases as an Input Tax Credit (ITC). After receiving GST registration, taxpayers can claim an input tax credit for GST paid on such inputs, capital goods, and inputs in completed products sitting in stock as of the effective date of registration.

    To claim the input tax credit, taxpayers registered under GST must submit a declaration using Form GST – ITC 01 on the GST system. The only way to get the ITC for that stock is to fill out this Form.

    Conditions for filing ITC-01

    1. If a request for GST registration is submitted within 30 days of the taxpayer becoming subject to GST payment obligations. To quote [sub-section 18(1)(a)]
    2. At the time any individual chooses to register voluntarily [Section 18(1)(b)]
    3. When a taxpayer decides not to participate in the composition scheme but keeps their normal taxpayer status. Specifically, [Section 18(1)(c)]
    4. When a formerly tax-exempt supply of goods or services becomes taxable. Pursuant to [Section 18(1)(d)]
    5. Note that if Form ITC – 01 is not filed, the individual will not be eligible to receive ITC.

    Forms of Input Tax Credit that Can Be Reclaimed

    Exempted supply becomes taxable only when a composition dealer opts out of the composition system.

    Schedules and deadlines for submitting an ITC claim

    To be eligible to claim ITC, a person must complete Form ITC – 01 by 30 days after becoming eligible (within 30 days after the award of registration or opting out of the composition scheme).

    Considerations for submitting Form ITC 01

    1. Learn which tax credits may be claimed as inputs. For instance, you can’t use Form ITC 01 to apply for the ITC related to services. Any time an exempted supply becomes taxable and the composition dealer decides to opt out of the composition system, the dealer can claim an ITC on capital goods.
    2. Regarding invoices, it is expected that information about ITC on purchases as of the cutoff date will be accessible.
    3. The ITC 01 form must be submitted by thirty days from the registration date or migration to a regular scheme.
    4. In the case of inputs, invoices up to one year old may be claimed, while invoices up to five years old can be claimed.
    5. If the ITC claim is more than INR 2 lakhs, a Chartered Accountant certificate or Cost Accountant certificate must be uploaded.
