After the launch of new e-filing website it became very difficult for people to use the website and they were not able to file any Forms on the new website.
Hence, to provide some relief CBDT had announced some relaxation in online filing of Form 15CA and 15CB as it is the very basic document for remitting money outside India and without this document companies were facing financial loss.
Initially CBDT had announced relaxation in online filing of Form 15CA and 15CB upto 30.06.2021 and had allowed manual filing of such forms.
However, still the website was not working properly and hence CBDT had further extended such relaxation till 15.07.2021.
Now, people are still facing issues in online filing of Form 15CA and 15CB and hence CBDT has further announced relaxation in online filing of such Forms till 15.08.2021 vide Press release which is as under:
“As per the Income-tax Act, 1961, there is a requirement to furnish Form 15CA/15CB electronically. Presently, taxpayers upload the Form 15CA, along with the Chartered Accountant Certificate in Form 15CB, wherever applicable, on the e-filing portal, before submitting the copy to the authorized dealer for any foreign remittance.
In view of the difficulties reported by taxpayers in electronic filing of Income Tax Forms 15CA/15CB on the portal www.incometax.gov.in, it had earlier been decided by CBDT that taxpayers could submit Forms 15CA/15CB in manual format to the authorised dealer till 15th July, 2021.
It has now been decided to extend the aforesaid date to 15th August, 2021. In view thereof, taxpayers can now submit the said Forms in manual format to the authorized dealers till 15th August, 2021. Authorized dealers are advised to accept such Forms till 15th August, 2021 for the purpose of foreign remittances. A facility will be provided on the new e-filing portal to upload these forms at a later date for the purpose of generation of the Document Identification Number.”
