VAT Returns submission procedure in Andhra Pradesh State explained.

After the Telanga Region is divided from Andhra Pradesh state the Commercial Tax Department of Andhra Pradesh state after bifurcation has changed its policies and the way of Monthly VAT Returns submission procedure also. In the 2015-2016 Financial Year, it has introduced a new electronic Filing System called Invoice Tracking System.

VAT Returns submission procedure in Andhra Pradesh State explained.

And in this article we are going to understand it in better way and let us see how we can upload the Monthly VAT Returns from June 2015 onwards from VAT Dealer e-Returns Portal. Earlier the VAT Dealers were uploading the VAT 200 Form by providing the Purchases and Sales Summary Report only of the particular month but from June 2015 onwards every VAT Dealer has to upload the Invoice Details and file VAT 200A Form before submitting VAT 200 Form.

In order to complete a month VAT Return VAT Dealer must go through the following procedure and it is mandatory.

  1. Login to the VAT Dealer Account using the TIN Number and Password.
  2. First the VAT Dealer must complete the Invoice Tracing System where he has to prepare the Annexure I and Annexure II Excel Template files, Upload, and Confirm from his Dealer Account in AP Commercial Tax Department portal.
  3. After the Invoice Tracing is done he has to complete the VAT 200A Form.
  4. After you have gone through the first two steps the final stage is common VAT 200 Form with which we are familiar already.

And this is the procedure of submitting the Monthly VAT Returns to the Andhra Pradesh state Commercial Tax Department from June 2015 onwards. And this is how to submit the monthly VAT Returns in Andhra Pradesh state.

Dear Venkatesh garu,
Is it necessary to upload the details of purchase & sales and their correspondence returns in excel sheet.and one more doubt is, is it necessary to send the hard copy to respective CTO after filing the return online. and also please upload the annual return filing process videos to educate people like me. Thanking You sir,

Venkkatesh K said...

As on date i.e. March 05,2016 Uploading the Purchases and Sales for VAT Dealers is mandatory and it is not mandatory to handover the VAT Returns Hard copies at CTO. I do not about what Annual Return Filing you are saying? Write your query in detail in this regard.

Dear Venkatesh garu,

We made sales to farmers, in this regard, what to write in the "Purchaser's TIN" column in "Sales details excel file" to confirm the invoice details. Thanking you sir.

Venkkatesh K said...

If you are selling to Non VAT Dealers you can put your own TIN Number in Other Dealer TIN Column.

Hello Sir,

we authorized dealer for tyres, and sell same to customer. Stared this recently. My question : I have TIN number, we did purchase recently and would like to file returns. Appreciate, if you can let us know step by step or procedure on how to file returns. Thanks

Venkkatesh K said...

Mr. Sardar Basha Shaik,

All you have to do is Just Upload and Confirm the Invoices and Submit Form 200A and Form 200.

Happy Dusserhra,

For example, I made a purchage of Rs 100 in september month, and in the same month i did a sale of for instance Rs 30.

In the above senario,

I made a sale of 30 to non vat dealer who do not hold TIN number
There is stock value to Rs 70 which was not sold in the September month.

In this case, how do I update the Sale file which has a column name(Purchager tin) and in the column name (Total value including Vat)-shall I include my profit with vat paid

ex: 1 item cost Rs 10, Vat = 5%-- Total Paid by me is = 10.5,
I sold this to non tin purchager with profit of 1% on 10.5 =10.605
So in this total value including vat in the sale file, should I mention 10.605?

Please help here! thanks

You do not need to upload the Purchase Details other than VAT Dealers. Only you have to show that in the VAT Form 200A & 200.
