GSTN issues advisory on technical problems faced while filing GSTR-9C
GSTN through its twitter account, GST Tech has issued an advisory on technical problems faced while filing GSTR-9C. This issue was related with error while uploading Balance Sheet and Profit & Loss Statement while filing GSTR-9C.
The Advisory was as follows:
“Balance sheet and Profit & loss statement/income & Expenditure Statement keywords used in office network firewall/ content security filter firewall to deny upload of such files/content as these contains sensitive information. If this will be used on open network all such mentioned documents can be uploaded successfully.”
Another issue which was being faced by taxpayers was Error while uploding JSON, that “While trying to upload JSON file they were getting message “ERROR OCCURRED””.
For that, GSTN has issued the advisory that, “This issue is because of incorrect format of data entered in Membership ID being uploaded on GST Portal starting with 0. “0” should not be used.”
Currently due date of Filing GSTR-9 and GSTR-9C for Financial Year 2017-18 is 31st January 2019.
Penalty for non-filing of GSTR9 is Rs. 200 per day (Rs. 100 in CGST Act and Rs. 100 in respective SGST Act) or 0.25% of total turnover whichever is lower. Further a general penalty of Rs. 50000/- (Rs. 25,000 in CGST Act and Rs. 25,000 in respective SGST Act)can also be levied.
Also there would be 100% chance of Department scruitney if your GST Annual Return is not filed on time.
Lets hope that you are able to file your GSTR-9 & GSTR-9C on or before the due date.
