Form 15CB is a form which a Chartered Accountant needs to issue generally when a business makes any payment to a non-resident to check and calculate the taxability on such transaction.
Currently there are two methods to submit Form 15CB on e-filing portal:
- To prepare Form 15CB online and submit it online.
- To prepare Form 15CB offline using utility and then submit it on portal.
In both the methods the Chartered Accountant will have to use digital signature, as Form 15CB can be submitted on e-filing portal only using digital signature.
However, in past few days the Chartered Accountant’s have been facing issue while submitting such Form 15CB wherein the digital signature is not getting detected on e-filing portal and it shows an error message stating “Something went wrong”.
