    The site did not function for the entire day on 31.05.2018 and today when it finally sprang back to life, the upload option has been disabled. Emails sent yesterday for the dead site remain unanswered. This is what is called “T(EASE) OF DOING BUSINESS”.

    my question is we are pvt. co. and not above Rs. 1 lakh (1 transition),
    can i file 16a?


      In my view filing of Nil Statement in form No. 61A is not mandatory under section 285BA read with rule 114E. Further to maintain consistency, Assessee who has filed Annual Information Return for F.Y. 2016-17 may consider filing such return for F.Y. 2017-18 too despite no specified transaction in F.Y. 2017-18.

    We have received funds from a foreign individual for more than 10L in exchange of shares.
    Q1. I shall ask for Form 60 from the individual? (since he does not have PAN)
    Q2. Since i have received Form 60 i shall be liable to file form 61?
    Q3. Amount received is more than 10L then we shall be also liable to file Form 61A?
    Q4. Reporting portal is having issue with respect to login?
