GST Payment and Refund

Hey @TeamQuicko

What is the time limit to claim GST Refund? Also how long will it take for the refund to be sanctioned?

Hey @HarshitShah

GST refund claims must be filed within 2 years from the relevant date. If the claim is in order, the refund has to be sanctioned within a period of 60 days from the date of receipt of the claim.

If a refund is not approved within the stated period of 60 days, interest at the rate notified must be paid in conformity with section 56 of the CGST/SGST Act.

Hope this helps!


Which form should be filed to claim a refund? And can I file for a refund offline?

Hey @SonalYadav

You can file for a refund both online and offline. A taxpayer can file for a refund by filing Form RFD-01/ RFD-01A. RFD-01 is an application for the online processing of refund under GST. It is to be e-filed on the GST portal. Whereas, RFD - 01A is the application form for refund form under GST for manual processing.

Hope this helps! :slight_smile:
