  1. Poonam Patel says:

    the clients who have already submit return but not paid the late fees because of shown the late fees payable in return, without paying how file ?

  2. CA.Prabhakar says:

    Waiver of late fee is only a first aid for an accident met in GST filing . The “submit” is most dangerous accident zone in 3B filing because whatever you feed it will accept even if it is erroneous . Ones you submit and go for offset liability it will show with huge liabilities even without prompting the mistakes. The entire prof. and business community is crying about this, but instead of rectifying such brutal mistakes in the program, waiving these late fess etc. cannot pacify the victims. Also Please open the Aug and Sep 3B returns for revision like July 3B other wise no solution for filing the returns subsequently.
    Donot go for prestige be practical. After all we are all struggling day and night in spite of several deadlines viz., Tax audits, ROC, TDS retuins GSTR 2 etc. for your success only. No body understands and recognizes our hard efforts. Instead creates inconvenience by not giving sufficient time frame. We are also human beings whatever possible only can do and the rest is left to fate of their own.

    Good Bye
