GSTN Utility RFD-1A for Exporters:

Merchant exporters will now be able to claim tax refunds by using the new utility RFD-1A on GSTN.   This utility will be available on the GST Network portal tonight 17th November 2017. With this utility RFD-1A, a merchant exporter can claim a refund of GST paid at the time of buying goods (Inputs) which later on he has exported in the relevant month.

GST RFD-1A utility will facilitate taxpayers to enter the details of inputs and exports made out of it by the exporter. Thereafter the said refund amount will be credited in the respective ledger/s.

The refund claims can be filled for the July-September months. The GSTN then will match the data with the corresponding GSTR-3B filed by the exporter.

Since the online system did not exist for exports of services and supplies to SEZ and those exporters claiming GST on inputs, the manual system has been launched. Starting the refund process is a good thing, but it remains to be seen in how many days the exporters actually get the refund credited in their bank accounts.  Subscribe to our latest post on GST India news to receive future related updates.
