Exactly what are the important points there in the circular? let’s check it out but make sure you sit back, relax & enjoy, because it’s weekend!

1. Last date for payment of tax is 25th August, 2017 instead of 20th August, 2017 (for July 2017).

2. Last date for filling return which was 20th August 2017, is extended till 25th August 2017(for July 2017).

3. Last date for filling return which was 28th August, 2017 is remains same i.e. 28th August 2017. (for July 2017)
