Input tax credit on purchases prior to the date of registration:

Person making an application for new registration shall be entitled to claim credit of input tax held in inputs as such, inputs contained in semi-finished goods or finished goods held in stock by such person on the day immediately preceding the date from which such person is liable to obtain registration i.e., the supplies made thirty days before the date of registration if the application for registration is made on thirtieth day, from the date on which he became liable to get registered OR the date on which he made an application for registration, if application for registration is made immediately he became liable for registration.

Note: Input tax credit in relation to capital goods held as a fixed asset as on the above date, which will be used or is intended to be used in making taxable supply will not be available, as there is no specific provision in this regard. In such cases, person making an application for registration could effect purchases of such capital goods (if he is intending to purchase any) after receiving the said registration certificate.
