GSTR-1 Due Date Extended 2020
Update for Filing GSTR-1 in 2020
Due to the impact of the Corona Virus worldwide, many people across the world stay in lockdown period to support the Governments’ measure to curb the Corona Virus. To avoid the financial burden on the people at a time like these, the Government of India (GoI), implemented various schemes such as Companies Fresh Start Scheme 2020 to avail benefits for taxpayers who either failed to pay taxes on time or unable to pay the penalty and stopped filing. To ensure smooth operation of the business, the GoI also implemented several waive off for penalty in non-filing or registration compliance. This shall also apply for filing GSTR-1.
On 3rd April 2020, the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs implemented waving off the GSTR-1 through the Notification No.33/2020. The CBIC states that through the powers of Section 128 of Central Goods and Services Tax 2017, any late fee payable for the month of March 2020, April 2020, May 2020 and for the quarter ending 31st March 2020 shall stand waived off. It shall apply to all the registered taxpayers who failed to furnish the details of the outward supplies in Form GSTR-1 in the above-mentioned months by the end of the due date.
The said waive off shall apply only if the registered taxpayer furnishes the details of all the outwards supplies made during the non-filing tax periods and also during the waive off period on or before 30th June 2020.
