To receive a GST refund, taxpayers are required to navigate through a comprehensive process and submit all necessary documents and declarations to the GST authorities. GST refunds can arise from various scenarios, such as an excess balance in the electronic cash ledger, erroneous tax payments, or accumulated Input Tax Credit (ITC) unable to be utilized due to zero-rated sales or an inverted tax structure.
Different types of GST refunds require the use of specific forms for claim submission. For example, to request a refund of IGST paid on exports (with tax payment), only information in the GSTR-1 and GSTR-3B forms needs to be disclosed. On the other hand, the RFD-01 form is used to seek a refund of any excess cash payment made beyond the electronic cash ledger. Consequently, the procedures and processes for GST refunds may vary depending on the specific refund type.
Our GST Refund Service is designed to assist businesses in reclaiming eligible Goods and Services Tax (GST) refunds efficiently and effortlessly. With our expertise in navigating the complex GST regulations, we provide a streamlined process that ensures accurate and timely filing of refund claims.

Experience hassle-free GST refund filing with our trusted service and unlock the potential for significant financial savings.
What is GST refund process?
The Goods and Services Tax (GST) refund process allows registered taxpayers to claim back any excess GST they have paid. This typically occurs when the GST paid exceeds the actual GST liability. The tax authorities then reimburse the taxpayer for the excess amount.
When Can a GST Refund Be Claimed?
Claiming a refund of any balance in the electronic cash ledger can be done within two years from the relevant date by submitting the return under section 39 using Forms GSTR 3, GSTR 4, and GSTR 7.
For inbound supplies of goods or services by a UNO specialized agency, consulate, or foreign embassy, a refund claim can be filed within six months after the quarter in which the supply was received.
Registered persons can request a return of unused input tax credit at the end of any tax period.
GST refund can be claimed upon export of products, services, or both after IGST payment, as well as on tax payment made on a provisional basis.
Although paid on intrastate supplies, CGST, SGST, and UTGST can be retained for interstate supplies.
A Casual Taxable Person or Non-Resident Taxable Person who paid advance tax as per Section 27(2) is eligible for a refund.
Excessive tax payment also qualifies for a refund.
Refunds are allowed in the following situations:
Completion of preliminary evaluation.
