  2. Dear Mr. Sankar

    For sales to unregistered dealers, you need not give tin number & also need not fill the annexure. You fill all the annexures, generate the base form & in the baseform generated, you can manually enter the total sales to unregistered dealers. Ensure that you do this before submission.

    For purchases of exempted goods , you can fill the annexure 3, where TIN is not required. and you can give the same as exempted goods

    I have the following queries :-

    2. One of my friends having a supermarket and he has not filed any return from the date of commencement (Feb 2016) Kindly advice how to file return now.

    3. All are cash sales at counter. Please let me know where to show this in Form I and annexure.3.

    4. Some purchases are also cash purchases without TIN number. Please let me know to show this in the Return.

  8. Dear Mr. Wajid

    1) Purchase u/s 12 is the purchases made from a registered dealer. Applicable taxes on the same needs to be paid by the purchaser and the Input tax credit can also be claimed on the same.
    Exempt purchases are the goods which are exempted either by notification by the TN Government or the goods listed in Fourth Schedule of the TNVAT Act

    2) Returns from Feb 2016 to May 2016 shall be filed manually with the respective Assessment circle as the online efiling does not allow filing beyond 2 months. For june & july 2016, you can filed the same in the new portal
    ensure that the returns are filed to avoid cancellation of the registration

    3) Cash sales at counter is a sale to unregistered dealer. You need to enter the same in the base form directly.

    4) These are to be shown in the annexure 3 (unregistered dealer). As informed in point 1, these are purchases under section 12 and tax on the purchases needs to be paid by the dealer and next month you can claim the ITC for the same

  9. Dear Karthik,

    While filing the revised return, you need to fill all the forms and annexures. On submission of the revised return, the system will automatically take the credit of the amount already paid and you need to pay only the balance amount.
