Date of Judgment : 02-05-2024
Appeal No : WPA NO. 5222 OF 2024
Counsel Name : T.M. Siddique, Arnab Chakraborty, Aniket Chaudhury, Tanoy Chakraborty, Saptak Sanyal
Fact of the Case: The tax authorities issued a notice to a business, saying that they had wrongly claimed a tax credit on their purchases. The authorities claimed that the business couldn’t prove that the suppliers they bought from had actually paid their taxes to the government.The business tried to defend itself by providing certificates from Chartered Accountants, saying that the suppliers did pay their taxes. However, the tax authorities didn’t accept these certificates. They said that the information in the certificates didn’t match the information available on the government’s online tax portal. As a result, the tax authorities upheld their original demand for the wrongly claimed tax credit.
Held by court : The tax authorities didn’t give the business a chance to explain things properly. They didn’t ask the business for any clarifications before making their decision.
Also, they ignored important documents provided by the business, like the tax invoices and certificates from Chartered Accountants. This was a mistake on their part and not fair to the business.If the tax authorities doubted whether the suppliers paid their taxes, they should have checked with the suppliers first. It’s not right to penalize the business without doing that.
So, the decision they made to demand the wrongly claimed tax credit should be overturned because it was unfair and not done properly.
In favor of : Assessee
Topic of GST : Demand & Recovery & wrongfully availed ITC
Section of GST: Section 73 & 16 of CGST Act,2017
