CBIC extends due date for Filing GST Annual Return [Read Notification]

CBIC - Annual Return - due date - Taxscan

The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs ( CBIC ) has extended the due date for filing GSTR-9 (Annual Return) for the Financial Year 2018 – 19 to be extended till the 30th of September, 2020.

The GST Council, in its 39th meeting, had extended the due date for filing GSTR-9 (Annual Return) and GSTR-9C (Reconciliation Statement) for the Financial Year 2018 – 19 to 30th June 2020.

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 previous 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 extensive reconciliation of data for 100% transparent disclosures.

The late fees for not filing the GSTR 9 within the due date is Rs 100 per day, per act. That means late fees of Rs 100 under CGST and Rs 100 under SGST will be applicable in case of delay. Thus, the total liability is Rs 200 per day of default. This is subject to a maximum of 0.25% of the taxpayer’s turnover in the relevant state or union territory. However, there is no late fee on IGST yet.
