Online Compliance Pertaining to Liability / Difference Appearing in GSTR-1 & GSTR-3B (DRC-01B)

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Upon receiving an intimation, taxpayer must file a reply in Form DRC-01B Part B, providing clarification through reason in automated dropdown and details regarding the discrepancy, if not included in the dropdown.
  • To further help taxpayer 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.
