Vide the press release it is informed that Government of India has extended the due date for filing FORM GSTR-9, FORM GSTR-9A and FORM GSTR-9C till 31st March 2019. The requisite FORMs shall be made available on the GST common portal shortly. Relevant order is being issued.

In this regards, your association also forwarded herewith an article published by The Economic Times (online).  As per the article; there has been a clamour to extend the deadline with The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) on Thursday urging the finance minister Arun Jaitley to extend the last date for filing annual goods and services tax return. CAIT said that the format of filing of annual GST return is not available anywhere including the GST website.

"Under such circumstances, it will not be possible for the traders to file their annual GST return by the stipulated period and as an immediate measure, the CAIT has urged to extend the last date of filing annual GST return up to March 31, 2019, for the period 2017-18."

As per the GST Rules, various forms have been prescribed for the purpose of return, depending upon the categories of the taxpayers. 

The Government has now increased the timelines for taxpayers under 9A, 9C and 9. According to the law fails to file an annual return shall attract a late fee of Rs 200 per day during the period of failure, subject to a maximum of 0.25% of the said Financial Year's turnover.

Thanking you,
