What is GSTR- 2B?

  • GSTR-2B is an auto-drafted ITC statement which will be generated for every registered person on the basis of the information furnished by his suppliers in their respective GSTR-1, 5 (non-resident taxable person) and 6 (input service distributor). 
  • The statement will indicate the availability of input tax credit to the registered person against each document filed by his suppliers. 
Will GSTR-2B contain static data( month wise) or cumulative data?

  • GSTR-2B is a static statement and will be made available for each month on the 12th day of the succeeding month
  • For example, for the month of July 2020, the statement will be generated and made available to the registered person on 12th August 2020.  
Which period's data will get reflected in the current period of GSTR-2B?

  • GSTR-2B for a month (M) will contain the details of all the document filed by his suppliers in their respective GSTR-1, 5 and 6 between the due date of furnishing of GSTR-1 for previous month (M-1) to the due date of furnishing of GSTR-1 for the current month (M).
  •  For example, GSTR-2B generated for the month of July, 2020 will contain the details of all the documents filed by suppliers in their GSTR-1, 5 and 6 from 00:00 hours on 12th July, 2020 to 23:59 hours on 11th August 2020.
