It is evident that COVID — 19 (Coronavirus) has affected the entire world including India. The Word Health Organisation (WHO) has announced COVID — 19 outbreaks a pandemic. Majority of the offices are working only partially. Life has almost comes to standstill and people are working for survival.
Therefore, we request your goodself to provide appropriate relaxation to the registered person and extend due dates of filing GST Annual return and GST Audit for the year 2018-19 by three month till December, 31 2020. This would provide needed relaxation to the trade, in combating the circumstances arising out of Coronavirus.
We would be very grateful if a suitable order may be issued to this effect at the earliest. We shall be glad to provide any further input as may be required and your office may reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 9310542608.
