GSTR-9,9A and 9C due date extended till 30 November, 2019
Relief to the taxpayers as well as for GST professionals. The deadline for filling GST Annual Return has been extended from 31st August, 2019 to 30th November, 2019 by Removal of Difficulty Order No. 7/2019-Central Tax dt. 26-08-2019.
“Taarikh pe Taarikh” – “Date on Date”
GST Annual Return due date extended 5 times from 30th September 18 to 31st December 2018, then March 2019, then June 2019, then Aug 2019 and now Nov 2019. But this time it was certain that extension has to come. Wondering when annual Return of FY 18-19 will even start.
Now another thing the people want is simplification of GST Annual Return Forms. Also availability of Input Tax Credit left in FY 2017-18 to be claimed. Because extension of due date is not the solution, simplification to annual return is the only solution. Otherwise Ease of doing business may get fail and difficulty of doing business will prevail.
Hoping Revision of Forms and Simplification will be taken into consideration too. Without simplification and Revision option, the difficulties faced won’t end and extension of date won’t help.
The notification for extension is-
