Advisory: Online Compliance Pertaining to Liability / Difference Appearing in R1 – R3B (DRC-01B)
1. It is informed that GSTN has developed a functionality to enable the taxpayer to explain the difference in GSTR-1 & 3B return online as directed by the GST Council. This feature is now live on the GST portal.
2. The functionality compares the liability declared in GSTR-1/IFF with the liability paid in GSTR-3B/3BQ for each return period. If the declared liability exceeds the paid liability by a predefined limit or the percentage difference exceeds the configurable threshold, taxpayer will receive an intimation in the form of DRC-01B.
3. Upon receiving an intimation, the taxpayer must file a response using Form DRC-01B Part B. The taxpayer has the option to either provide details of the payment made to settle the difference using Form DRC-03, or provide an explanation for the difference, or even choose a combination of both options.
4. To further help taxpayers with the functionality, a detailed manual containing the navigation details is available on the GST portal. It offers step-by-step instructions and addresses various scenarios related to the functionality. The link is stated below:
