    I am going to submit final GST return before 29/12/2018. As advised by our auditor, final GST return should include NBV fixed assets of GST input tax claimed and all stocks as of 31/08/2018 . Does it mean that only stocks to be included in the final GST return and fixed assets not required? Is the final GST return form GST-03?

      If you don’t have any stock as on 31/8/2018, then just submit as your normal GST submission before end of December 2018

    we have consignment stock at outside and only do stock take one a year. For our balance sheet figure it will capture outside consignment stock figure as at financial year + internal warehouse in out stock figure. So i just take the stock figure from balance sheet + sales figure (Aug) and put in 5a?

    For the GST03 final submission,the output tax 5a the amount is final stock balance which is not include the sales of July and Aug ?

      The output 5a already included sales of Jul and Aug, thus you need to take stock closing as 31 Aug 2018

    1. The GST final submission need to include “closing stock” and “property, plant and equipment” as at 31 August 2018.
    * If no need to include in the final submission, please ignore the following enquiry.
    2. The closing stock included in final GST submission need to include as cost or market value.
    3. The property, plant and equipment included as cost, net book value (after depreciated) or market value.
    4. The property, plant and equipment only include for taxable amount claimed input tax (TX & TX-CG) or others related unclaimed capital also need to include (NR & TX-NC and etc)
