Process of GST payment | Company Vakil


All the business entities registering under the GST rules will be provided a unique identification number known as GSTIN or GST Identification Number. Similarly, service tax registration number is rendered to a service provider by Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC). GSTIN and UIN are two different types of identification numbers under GST rules. Goods and Services Tax Identification Number (GSTIN) is allotted to a regular taxpayer who is required to collect GST and file the GST returns. UIN is a special class of GST Registration for foreign diplomatic missions and the embassies which are not liable to taxes in the Indian Territory.

How will the GST payments be made?

Deposits can be made in the Electronic Cash Ledger for making payment towards tax, interest, penalty, fee or any other amount under any of the GST laws. The Electronic Cash Ledger will be maintained in FORM GST PMT-05 to pay tax, interest, penalty, fee or any other amount, on the GSTN. Any person, or a person on his behalf, can generate a challan in FORM GST PMT-06on the GSTN and enter the details of the amount to be deposited by him.

GST Payment process

The following is the payment process for GST tax payment:

  1. Any payment required to be made by an unregistered person will be made on the basis of a Temporary Identification Number generated through GSTN.
  2. Payment by NEFT or RTGS mode from any bank, the mandate form, must be generated along with the challan on the GST and shall be submitted to the bank and is valid for only 15 days.
  3. When the amount is realized by the bank, a challan Identification Number (CIN) will be generated by the bank and the same will be indicated in the challan.
  4. On receipt of CIN from the bank, the amount will be credited to the Electronic Cash Ledger and the GSTN will provide a receipt of the deposit.
  5. Where the bank account is debited but no CIN is generated or generated but not communicated to the GSTN, the problem can be presented in FORM GST PMT-07 through GSTN to the bank or the electronic gateway through which the deposit was initiated.

  • Internet banking;
  • Credit card or debit card;
  • NEFT or RTGS from any bank;
  • Over the counter payment for deposit up to Rs. 10,000/- per challan per tax period, by cash or demand draft.
