PROVIDED that no such rectification of any omission or incorrect particulars shall be allowed after the due date for furnishing of return for the month of September or second quarter, as the case may be, following the end of the financial year, or the actual date of furnishing of relevant annual return, whichever is earlier.

When compared to the old draft, following are the key points and changes that are to be taken note of:

1. Non-resident taxable person, input service distributor, person paying tax under composite levy scheme, deducting TDS/collecting TCS are not required to furnish the details regarding inward /outward supply of goods & services, credit availed, tax paid. Return is to be filed on or before 20th day of the succeeding month.

2. Registered taxable person paying tax under composite levy scheme has to file the return on or before 18th day of the succeeding quarter.

3. Taxable person who required to deduct TDS have to furnish a return within 10 days of subsequent month.

4. ISD holder will have to furnish a return within 13 days of subsequent month

5. Registered non-resident taxable person has to file return within 20th day of after the end of the month or within 7 days after the last day of validity of the registration whichever is earlier.

6. Commissioner may notify class of taxable persons, for whom time limit for filling the return may be extended.

7. The registered taxable person who has been communicated details of outward supplies must either accept or reject the details communicated by 18th of subsequent month

8. It is deemed that if limit for filing the return is extended by the Central/State Commissioner is also extended by the State/ Central Commissioner. This means that the date extended by one is applicable on other also. But the jurisdiction of both may vary. This provision needs clarity.

9. Payment of taxes due will have to be paid by 20th of subsequent month along with return.

10. Even though there are no transactions, every taxable person will have to file a return. To be more simple, nil returns are to be filed.

11. When taxpayer discover omission/incorrect particulars should rectify the errors in the subsequent return when such error would be noticed along with payment of taxes & interest.

12. However, no rectification can be made after furnishing the return for the month of September of subsequent year or Annual Return whichever is earlier.
