Input Service Distributors (ISD), as a specified category, only distribute credit on tax invoices received centrally on services to units that actually use those services in the course of their business. Since they do not normally have a net tax liability, a simplified return has been specified in Form GSTR-6. GSTR-6 shall be prepared after adding, correcting or deleting the details contained in Form GSTR 6A. This return form would capture the following information:
• Basic details of the Taxpayer i.e. Name along with GSTJ.N
• Period to which the Return pertains
• Final invoice-level inward supply information pertaining to the tax period separately for goods and services on which the ITC is being claimed. This will be auto populated on the basis of GSTR- 1 filed by the Counterparty Supplier of the taxpayer. The same may be modified i.e. added or deleted by the Taxpayer while filing the ISD return. The recipient would be permitted to add invoices (not uploaded by the counterparty supplier) if he is in possession of invoices and have received the services.
• Details of the Invoices along with the GSTJN of the receiver of the credit i.e. to whom the ISD is distributing credit.
There will be separate ISD Ledger in the return that will detail the Opening Balance of ITC (to be auto-populated on the basis of previous return), credit for ITC services received, debit for ITC reversal and ITC distributed and Closing Balance.
Return would be filed by 13th. of the succeeding month.
