In the case of zero-rated supplies, Section 54 of the CGST Act eliminated reference to removing any provisional ITC claimed from the accumulated ITC refund amount.
Budget 2023 also prohibited input tax credits for high sea sales and warehoused products before clearance for domestic consumption. Para 8(a) of Schedule III exempts these transactions from GST. An change to Section 17(3) of the CGST Act prohibits ITC on inputs or input services used for such sales.
Section 17(5) of the CGST Act now disallows ITC for GST paid for CSR expenses. These Budget Bill 2023 revisions limit valid ITC claims for some taxpayers, but the government has failed to notify them.
Section 16 was revised to require recipients to repay ITC claimed and interest under Section 50 if they do not pay the invoice value, including GST, to their supplier within 180 days of the invoice date.
