The due date for furnishing annual return in FORM GSTR-9 & self-certified reconciliation statement in FORM GSTR-9C for the financial year 2020-21 has been extended from 31.12.2021 to 28.02.2022. Notification No.40/2021-Central Tax dated 29.12.2021 to this effect has been issued.
In the said notification you can read as under:
“in rule 80,–
(a) after sub-rule (1), the following sub-rule shall be inserted, namely:-
“(1A) Notwithstanding anything contained in sub-rule (1), for the financial year 2020-2021 the said annual return shall be furnished on or before the twenty-eighth day of February, 2022“;
(b) after sub-rule (3), the following sub-rule shall be inserted, namely:-
“(3A) Notwithstanding anything contained in sub-rule (3), for the financial year 2020-2021 the said self-certified reconciliation statement shall be furnished along with the said annual return on or before the twenty-eighth day of February, 2022.“;
Further, as we know from FY 2020-21 GSTR 9C has been changed from CA certified to self certified.
Also, it’s a logical step because for GST reconciliation also one would need audited financial statement and as we know due date for audit has been extended.
