The Chairman
Goods and Services Tax Council

In regard to the extension of the date of GSTR-9 and GSTR-9C

1. Due to the extension of the due date of filing of the income tax returns from July to August, a lot chaos amongst the taxpayers and professionals have been arisen. Since GST Annual return is to be flied for the first time, the taxpayers are still confused regarding the informations that needs to be filled.

2. Since all the returns with the due dates in August attracts penalty ;taxpayers are facing a Lot of issues regarding the same, The penalty under non filing of GTR-9C also attracts heavy penalty and within a week it is very difficult for the people to file it on time.

3. The weather conditions in nearly one-fourth of India is not good and i5 covered with flood and power failures, small taxpayers and taxpayers from such places find it difficult to file the return,

4. Since the offline utility of GSTR-9C and GSTR-9 needs a lot of information that needs to be compiled with the income Tax return filed with the department, professionals when the ITR filing date,Tax Audit dates are due are finding it very difficult to compile the data of 17-18 when the management of the companies/organisations are busy in making compliances and compiling the data for F.Y. 2018-19.

5. There has been frequent changes in the softwares due to which the, Chartered Accountants, Practitioners, Advocates are worried about the charges that are being occurring regularly and needs to be updated due to which a very less time is left for finishing the required work.

6. Due to time constraint and penalty criteria the professional efficiency is also being hampered.

7. Since only 16-18% approx. returns have been filed it is requested to you to kindly extend the due date.

So it is kindly requested to extend the due date for filing the GSTR-9 and GSTR-9C from August to December along with the filing of GSTR-9C for the F.Y. 2018-19 so that all the compliances are made and the adjustments made in the following years gets reconciled at the same time.

Yours truly,

    सुबह उठता हूँ तो ठान के ऑफिस जाता हूँ कि आज हिम्मत करके एक 9C फाइल कर ही दूंगा, लेकिन फिर ऑफिस पहुँचकर याद आता है कि इनकम टैक्स रिटर्न भी भरने हैं ,फिर रिटर्न भरने में लग जाता हूँ, फिर क्लाइंट का फोन आता है सर बैंक वाले लोन के लिए बैलेंस शीट और ऑडिट रिपोर्ट मांग रहे हैं, जरा देख लेना ,फिर टैक्स ऑडिट दिमाग में घूमता है, इतने में किसी दूसरे क्लाइंट का फ़ोन आ जाता है कि सर किसी अच्छी सी स्कीम में लोआन करा दो और प्रोजेक्ट रिपोर्ट बना दो , जैसे ही उसका ख्याल करता तो फिर फ्री की कंस्लटेंसी वाले पाँच-छह फोन आ ही जाते हैं, उनसे निपटकर काम करने बैठे कि पता चलता कि कंपनी एक्ट में कुछ चेंज हुआ है और आरओसी में रिपोर्टिंग करना है, ये करने की कोशिश शुरू ही होती कि पता चलता कि जीएसटी में कोई महत्वपूर्ण बदलाव हो गया और इतने में घर से फोन आता है कि अब तक घर नहीं आए।

    CA’s Friends : Yaar aaj to Sunday hai chal party karte hai..
    CA : Sunday??? Party??? Wo kya hota hai??? #GSTR9 #GSTR9C

  5. KUMAR says:

    There is lot of confusion about ITC available & ITC reversal among assessees. Small business people totally depend on their auditors and professional accountants, who have to furnish loads of details in Form 9 & 9C. The Government should at-least think of filing revised returns. Also, recently Tax departments in some parts have started issuing notice for mismatch in payment of service tax dues of past 5 years (even for a mismatch of Re.1/-) to be replied within 7 days. All this has created panic among business community and pressure on professionals. Government has to do something.

  6. H IYER says:

    i find that it is not possible to find out the cash ledger balance / credit ledger balance on an earlier date.from the site.
    if the same is available it would be easy to confirm the correctness of our books and make a reconciliation etc
    please bring it to the notice of the authorities suitably.
    if i am wrong ( i had requested the helpdesk and they were not able to give any solution) kindly inform how this can be found
    for example the balance as on 31.03 18

  7. CMA ANIL SHARMA says:

    It is good to request extension of date for GSTR-9 and 9C. But it will not solve the purpose. Better if we can suggest to withdraw some of the paras of GSTR-9 and 9C like HSN wise summary, Para-14 of GSTR-9C, breakup of ITC etc. etc.
    These paras can be inactive at portal and assesses can be exempted form filing such information.
