GST Annual Return: SC stays extension of filing date on Centre’s plea

 GST Annual Return: SC stays extension of filing date on Centre’s plea

The Supreme Court has stayed the Rajasthan High Court order that extended the deadline for filing of Form GSTR-9 (annual return) and Form GSTR-9C (reconciliation statement) without fine by up to a week to February 12, 2020 on a plea by the Centre that the move could undermine its efforts to boost GST compliance. Having had to extend the deadlines for filing of the two forms several times and come under flak for such leniency, the government pleaded in the SC: “Tinkering with such time lines would have a catastrophic impact on the functioning of GST law, as it has the tendency to create confusion and ambiguity in the trade.”

The stay order was passed pursuant to Mehta’s submissions that only Rs 200 per day was being charged for the filing of late returns and the amount will be refunded in case the government lost the case. However, the apex court bench led by Justice RF Nariman directed the HC to decide the issue on the basis of facts without getting influenced by its ad-hoc order izmir sex shop | izmir sex shop | sex shop izmir | sex shop izmir | sex shop izmir | izmir sex shop | bakırköy sex shop | kadıköy sex shop | ataşehir sex shop
