Discrepancies Among GSTR 2A, GSTR 2B, GSTR 8A


Exploring the ins and outs of GSTR-2A, GSTR-2B, and GSTR-8A, and shedding light on the possible problems these forms can create for people who pay taxes.

  1. GSTR-2A: GSTR-2A is like a list automatically put together for what someone buys. It’s made up of details about the things someone bought during a specific time for taxes. This info comes from the people who sold those things, and they report it in their own tax forms called GSTR-1. So, GSTR-2A helps you check if what you bought matches what the sellers said they sold you in a month. It’s like a first look to see if everything is okay with your buying records.
  2. GSTR-2B: GSTR-2B is quite similar to GSTR-2A. But it’s a bit different because it doesn’t use the most up-to-date seller information. Instead, it’s made once a month and shows all the tax credits you can use. It’s like a big summary of how much tax credit you can take from your purchases. Even though it comes from GSTR-1, it’s mainly for helping you understand things, not for immediate use in taxes.
  3. GSTR-8A: GSTR-8A is a report that deals with taxes collected when you buy things online. It’s for those online shops that gather tax money for the government. This form lists how much tax those online shops collected during a certain time.

Problems and Mismatched Stuff: If you see that things from GSTR-2A don’t appear in GSTR-8A, there could be some reasons:

  1. Seller Slip-Ups: Sometimes, the people who sold you things might forget to say what they sold in their tax forms. This can cause things to go missing from your GSTR-2A.
  2. Time Mix-Ups: If the time when sellers report in their GSTR-1 is different from when you tell about your buys in GSTR-2A, there might be confusion, especially toward the end of tax reporting time.
  3. Computer Issues: Technical problems or delays with the tax system’s computer network could also make the forms not match up.
  4. Saying It Wrong: Either the sellers or you might tell the tax system about things in the wrong way, causing things to not match up.
  5. How It Affects You: When GSTR-2A and GSTR-8A don’t match, along with other forms, it can lead to some not-so-good things:
  1. Tax Credit Confusion: Differences between GSTR-2A and GSTR-8A can mess up your tax credit claims. This means you might not get all the credit you’re supposed to.
  1. Sorting Out Problems: You’ll have to spend extra time fixing these differences, which can take a lot of time and effort.
  1. Extra Charges: If there’s a mix-up and you say you have more tax credit than you really do, you might need to pay extra for that.
  1. Following the Rules: When things don’t match up, it could mean you’re not following the tax rules right. This might lead to fines or other legal issues.
  1. Money Squeeze: If there are delays or mix-ups in getting your tax credit, it could mess up how much money you have available to use.

To solve these issues, it’s really important for you to check what you bought against what’s in GSTR-2A, GSTR-2B, and other forms. You should also talk to the people who sold you things to make sure everything is correct. This helps to avoid troubles and keeps your money situation steady.

I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
