GSTR-9 & GSTR-9C for FY 2018-19, due date to be extended
As per news updates, there are high chances that due date of GSTR-9 & GSTR-9C for FY 2018-19 might be extended in the upcoming GST Council meeting, to be held on 14th March 2020. Main reason for the same is technical defaults faced by taxpayers on GST Portal.
The GST Portal was opened for filing of Annual return of FY 2018-19, very recently. One of the problem on portal was if you have not filed your annual return (GSTR-9) for 2017-18, the GST site is not allowing you to file an Annual Return for financial 2018-19. Also, Auto populated data (Input Tax Credit) from GSTR-2A is not displaying in Table no 8-A and 8-B of GSTR-9 whereas, in some cases input taken in TRAN (2017-18) is showing in GSTR-9 of 2018-19. In some cases, taxpayers are getting error as “Summary Under Process”.
