There may be many instances wherein you may have not taken input tax credit on the invoices received from 01.04.2021 to 31st March 2022 from your supplier. Also, this is applicable in the upcoming financial years.

Therefore if you have such invoices and you want to claim ITC then you can book and take such credit while filing GSTR 3B of September or October 2022 but before 30th November 2022.  

In past, the last date to avail of ITC of the previous year was allowed until filing GSTR 3B of September of the next year or the annual return whichever was earlier.

However, this has been revised with effect from 1st October 2022. In this regard, the government has issued a Notification No. 18/2022-Central Tax dated 28.09.2022 and implemented sections 100 to 114, of the Finance Act, 2022, into GST. Thus, due to this amendment in the CGST section, the previous date has been replaced with 30th November.
