How to transfer input tax credit between multiple GST numbers?

Under the GST regime, multiple business premises within the same state can be either be declared as an additional place of business or obtain separate registration. In the case of separate GST registration, the business premise would have to maintain separate electronic ledgers/registers. In this article, we will look at how the new establishment can claim ITC.

  • ITC shall be transferred in the ratio of the value of assets held by the transferee on the date of registration.
  • Transferor will furnish Form ITC-02A on the Common portal within 30 days of new registration.
  • Transferee will accept the details filled by the transferor on the Common portal.
