In the 38th meeting of the GST council, it has again recommended to extend the due date for annual return Form 9 and reconciliation statement 9C to 31.01.2020 as the schema for Form 9C would be released on 21.12.2019.
It has been extended till now for atleast five times from the time it has been announced and for the past 1 year the department is still not able to figure out which is the most simplest manner of that Form/ Return.
From past each month it’s just getting extended and which is in turn extending the due date for assessment of such returns.
It would be better if government just make departmental scrutiny of all returns instead of extending such due dates of annual return and in turn would extend it’s assessment due date and due date of next annual return or may be just make the whole thing optional for that year as it was the first year where form was not clear, people were not clear about the form.
