i) Presently the UN bodies are eligible for refund of taxes paid by them at the time of purchases made by them from the market. GST Law may provide for similar provision and in such a case, the following process for grant of refund is recommended:


a) Refund on purchases by UN Bodies may be granted from only one office each of both the tax administrations within one State.


b) UN Bodies may be assigned a unique identification number (ID) the structure of which would be uniform across the States in conformity with the GSTIN Structure. (Some other structure may have to be considered as such bodies do not have PAN)


c) The registration document, return document and invoice would contain a column for capturing this Unique ID.


d) There has to be a separate field for allotting ID to such bodies.


e) While making supplies to such bodies, the suppliers must indicate the Unique ID on the invoices.


f) The UN Bodies may file their purchase statements (without purchase invoices) along with their claim for refund.


g) The GST Law may provide that some purchases are ineligible for refund (e.g. invoice value less than the prescribed threshold, goods / services specified as ineligible for refund, etc.). Such cases should be specifically marked in the purchase statement or may not be included in the purchase statement.


h) The net claim will be related to GST paid on total purchases minus GST paid on ineligible purchases.


i) The IT system will carry out the matching with the sales statements of the counter party suppliers.


j) The matched and claimed to be eligible invoices will be seen by the jurisdictional authority to verify that none of the ineligible purchases have been included in the refund claim.


k) The refund may be granted based on the matching and the limited manual verification.


l) There might be situations when the supplier does not declare the supply in his monthly return. In such a case, unmatched invoices will get marked by the IT system and the supplier will be notified accordingly.


m) The UN body may be granted refund along with its next claim if any of the unmatched supplies have been accepted and related GST has been paid by the supplier and return has been filed subsequently.
