The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs ( CBIC ) has extended the deadline of GST Annual Returns ( GSTR-9 and GSTR-9C) for the financial year 2020-21 to February 28th, 2021.
In view of the difficulties expressed by the taxpayers in meeting this time limit, the Government has decided to further extend the due date for furnishing GSTR-9 and GSTR-9C for the financial year 2019-20 to 31.03.2021 with the approval of the Election Commission of India.
GSTR 9 is an annual return to be filed yearly by taxpayers registered under GST. It consists of details regarding the outward and inward supplies made/received during the relevant financial year under different tax heads i.e. CGST, SGST & IGST, and HSN codes. It is a consolidation of all the monthly/quarterly returns (GSTR-1, GSTR-2A, GSTR-3B) filed in that year. Though complex, this return helps in the extensive reconciliation of data for 100% transparent disclosures.Subscribe Taxscan AdFree to view the Judgment
