1. Revised GST Return Dates – A Relief

In their recent meetings, the GST committee decided to extend dates for various forms and GST returns. The decision to allow the transitional credit towards discharging July month’s tax liabilities, and the extension of due dates for payment of tax and for filing of GSTR-3B , has provided much needed relief to the businesses who are filing their first GST return. No doubt, the extended GST return dates for payment of tax and for filing GSTR-3B is a welcome move, and it will give an additional 5 day-window period for those tax payers who could not make it in the last minute. With the GST return date extended, the businesses need to re-align their compliance activities in line with the changes.
