38th GST Council Meeting concluded on 18th December 2019. Taxpayers can now avail provisional ITC on invoices not reflecting on GSTR-2A only to the extent of 10% of ITC reflecting in GSTR-2A and no longer 20%.
CBIC had earlier notified that only 20% of ITC available in GSTR-2A can be claimed as provisional ITC in GSTR-3B starting from 9 October 2019. It means the amount of ITC reported in GSTR-3B from 9 October 2019 will be a total of Actual ITC in GSTR-2A and provisional ITC being 20% of actual ITC in GSTR-2A. Hence, matching purchase register or expense ledger with GSTR-2A becomes crucial
