On submission of return, an Acknowledgement Number will be generated. In case of submission of a return which has been prepared by using offline tools, acknowledgement of submission will take some time as GSTN System will need to first verify details like the carry forward cash as per personal ledger, ITC, tax payment details etc. In such cases, initially a Transaction ID confirming receipt of data will be conveyed to the taxpayer, (as also envisaged in case of filing of short paid/non-paid return). Final acknowledgement of receipt of return will be generated after validation of data is completed and the same is integrated with the database.
(a) The acknowledgement of e-return may contain the following details:
(i) Return acknowledgement number (unique number generated by the GSTN), Date and Time
(ii) Transaction ID No., Date and Time
(iii) GSTIN of taxpayer
(iv) Relevant tax period details
(v) Gross Supplies, Taxable Supplies and Tax paid/refund claimed (CGST, SGST, IGST and Cess separately) during the Return period.
