There is a piece of information for the GST taxpayers. The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) has notified to file the GSTR-7 Return for the month of August 2021 by 10th September 2021.
It has also mentioned this is for the GST Taxpayers who are required to deduct Tax at Source (TDS) under GST! Late filing of GSTR-7 Return will attract late fees and interest.
CBIC has tweeted: “Attention GST Taxpayers who are required to deduct Tax at Source (TDS) under GST! File your GSTR-7 Return for the month of August 2021 by September 10th, 2021.”
Last month, it informed that the government had provided relief to the taxpayers by reducing / waiving the late fees for non-furnishing FORM GSTR-3B for the tax periods from July 2017 to April 2021, if the returns for these tax periods are furnished between June 01, 2021 to August 31, 2021.
The last date to avail benefit of the late fee amnesty scheme was extended from existing August 31, 2021, to November 30, 2021.
Based on the multiple representations received, the government has also extended the timelines for filing an application for revocation of cancellation of registration to September 30, 2021, where the due date of filing of an application for revocation of cancellation of registration falls between March 01, 2020, to August 31, 2021.
The extension would be applicable only in those cases where registrations have been cancelled under clause (b) or clause (c) of sub-section (2) of section 29 of the CGST ActThe filing of FORM GSTR-3B and FORM GSTR-1/ IFF by companies using electronic verification code (EVC), instead of Digital Signature certificate (DSC) has already been enabled for the period from April 27, 2021 to August 31, 2021. This has been further extended to 31st October 2021.The extension of the closing date of the late fee amnesty scheme and extension of time limit for filing of an application for revocation of cancellation of registration will benefit a large number of taxpayers, especially small taxpayers, who could not file their returns in time due to various reasons, mainly because of difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and whose registrations were cancelled due to the same. Taxpayers are requested to avail the benefit of these extensions at the earliest to avoid the last-minute rush.
