Unlocking Confidence in GST: Why Every Business Needs a Vendor Loyalty Check Report (VLCR)

Understanding ITC and Vendor Dependence:

GST credit is the backbone of ITC under the GST system. It can enable businesses to credit the GST amount vide on the inputs made purchased for fulfilling one’s own output. This helps reduce your overall tax payments to the government efficiently within the given period. But, claiming ITC requires your vendors to meet GST obligations most of the time.

The Domino Effect of Vendor Non-Compliance:

To claim ITC, your vendor must be GST registered, provide a valid invoice, supply goods/services, pay GST, and file returns on time. Any lapse in these requirements by your vendor can create a domino effect:

  • Ineligible ITC Claims: If your vendor hasn’t paid GST, the ITC they charge for your purchase becomes invalid. You cannot claim this credit, which result in a higher tax amount payable.
  • GST Notices and Scrutiny: Discrepancies between your declared ITC and your vendor’s tax records may prompt GST department notices. This can create time-consuming inquiries with the tax authorities and even possible tax audits.
  • Unnecessary Tax Liability and Penalties: If the tax department finds incorrect ITC claims due to vendor non-compliance, users may face penalties and additional tax obligations.

The Cost of Vendor Lapses Goes Beyond Money:

The consequences of vendor non-compliance are not merely the fines and penalties that have been discussed. Handling GST and potential audits can be stressful, diverting resources from your business.

Taking Control: Preventive Strategies to Mitigate Risk of Fraud in ITC Claims:

Fortunately, this is not the end of the world; you do not have to wait and be a helpless spectator to this situation.

Here’s what you can do to safeguard your business:

  • Vendor Selection with GST Compliance in Mind: When choosing suppliers, prioritize those registered for GST. Request their GST registration copies and ensure they understand their GST responsibilities.
  • Scrutinize Invoices and Tax Documents: To avoid ITC mishaps, meticulously review all invoices and tax documents from your vendors. Make sure they include such details such as the GST registration numbers, the tax charges, and the HSN codes.
  • Regular Reconciliation: Regularly verify that the ITC claimed by your vendors matches the information in your books. This proactive approach can quickly identify any disparities.
