Moving the records saved in IFF, to later months of same Quarter, by taxpayers under QRMP Scheme

The taxpayers under QRMP Scheme have been provided with an optional Invoice Furnishing Facility (IFF), to furnish details of their B2B Invoices and amendments thereto, for first two months of a quarter. Following enhancements have been made in IFF:

• Taxpayers can now MOVE the records saved in their IFF of first month of a quarter (if the time for filing it has expired) to IFF of second month of the quarter.

• Taxpayers can also MOVE the records saved in IFF of first month & second month of the quarter (if the time for filing it has expired) to their quarterly Form GSTR-1 (of the same quarter). Please note that the records can be moved only within a quarter.

• While preparing IFF/GSTR-1 (of later months of same quarter) online, in case of saved records, taxpayers will get a pop-up prompting them to either MOVE the records by selecting YES or delete them by selecting NO.

Note: Records under submitted (or filed) stage cannot be moved by above functionality.
