The total strength of Direct & Indirect members is comprising of more than 5000 members. The GSTBA is working as a bridge between taxpayers / tax professionals and tax administration.

The spread of COVID-19 Virus has impacted adversely thenormal working in the country. Unfortunately, the ferocity of Corona Virus has not abated and is spreading and increased cases in various parts of the country. The government has been very kind to recognize the difficulties and hardships being faced by the taxpayers and have extended various due dates time to time to reduce the difficulties and hardship of the taxpayers.

We are writing this letter to your good selves to extend the due date for submission of Annual Return (GSTR-9 & 9A) and reconciliation statement – GST Audit Report (GSTR-9C) for F.Y. 2019-20 from 31/12/2020 to 30/06/2021 due to following reasons:

2. Delay in availability of online utility (released on 10th December, 2020)

3. Lot of compliances to be made by the taxpayer under Direct & Indirect Taxation in the month of December – 2020.

The GSTB-3A shall therefore, be most grateful if the due date of filing of the Annual Return (GSTR – 9 & 9A) and reconciliation statement – GST Audit (GSTR-9C) tax audit report of F.Y. 2019-20 is extended by 6 months i.e. from 31/12/2020 to 30/06/2021.
