11 responses to “CBDT Amends Format of Form No. 3CD wef 20th August, 2018”

  1. Amit S says:

    What will be the position of the 3CD already filed before 20.08.2018?
    Will they need to refile resived 3CD with latest amended clause.. otherwise it will hurt the object of the amendment if this clauses are not reported.

  2. CA DEEPAK SONI says:

    THE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND THE INCOME TAX AUTHORITIES ARE BUSY IN COUNTING THE MONEY THEY HAVE AND PLAN TO HAVE AND THEREFORE THEY HAVE NO INCLINATION TO APPLY THEIR MIND TO THE TAX RELATED ISSUES OF THE TAX PAYERS. THEY KEEP THE PROFESSIONALS AWAKE BECAUSE THEY WANT TO HAVE SOUND SLEEP. OUR SOLDIERS ARE REMAINING AWAKE SO THAT THE CITIZENS CAN SLEEP.HERE THE POSITION IS TOTALLY REVERSE.

  3. CA PIYUSH PANCHAL says:

    government wished to hand over the work of assessment in detailed to professional and in turn in future it seems professional become responsible for facts stated in 3cd where it is found later on misleading or incorrect.
    Form 3CD is factual presentation by professional so unless it is properly reported, it seems that we become AO.

  4. Jignesh says:

    It means the audit report which has been already uploaded on income tax site before 20th Aug would be in old format. Thereafter in new format.Please clarify.

  5. RK says:

    Being 1st year of implementation of GST, govt should not have incorporated clauses of GST for FY1718. It should have incorporated this clause from FY1819 so that the assessees have sufficient time to comply. They should think from tax payer side also.

  6. Sunder says:

    To make some of the simple changes in ITRs and TARs CBDT was sleeping.

  7. Jignesh says:

    Seems government now wants CA to act as AO. A clause of calculation of tax demand should also be included.

  8. Shailesh P. Dobariya says:

    Title Date is incorrect

  9. Shailesh P. Dobariya says:

    Date is 20.07.2018 not 20.08.2018
