Subject: Requesting to extend due date of filing of GSTR 9 and GSTR 9C for the year 2018-19 up to 31st December 2020.

Respected Sir,

Greetings from The Institute of Cost Accountants of India…!!!

We would like to draw the kind attention to extend the due date of filling GSTR 9 and GSTR 9C for Financial Year 2018-19.

As we are aware, the due date for filling GSTR 9 and GSTR 9C for F.Y 2018-19, is 30th September 2020 according to Notification No. 41/2020 – Central Tax dated 5th May 2020

After getting requests from stakeholders we are urging to extend due date for the following reasons-

  • Due to lockdown situation in various parts of our country for public health concerns related to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) all the normal official activities are being hampered.
  • Taxpayers as well as Tax Consultants are also concerned to protect themselves from COVID 19, in turn hampering Tax compliance with respect to due date of filing of returns.
  • Transport Facility is not yet smooth due to COVID 19 in many areas and as a result it is becoming difficult to visit Taxpayer’s office even if it is required
  • Smooth functioning of compliance is being hampered since many employees , taxpayers and tax consultants are suffering due to COVID 19 and it is eternal truth that health issue is more important than any other else
  • Due to slowdown in global economy, all companies are facing financial crisis. In this situation they might be facilitated through giving extension in the date of filing of return.

In view of the above, our Institute being a professional body under the act of Parliament 1959, humbly requests to extend the due date of filling GSTR 9 and GSTR 9C for Financial Year 2018-19 up to 31st December 2020 for convenience of the tax payers as well as increasing in the revenue of Government.

We look forward to a favorable action for the best interest of stakeholders. Your good office may reach us at trd@icmai.in

Thanking You,

With Regards,

    Due to Covid related issues people are scared to attend office and resume normal work. Hence it is requested that the due date is further extended.
