Key changes (For AY 2022-23):
Although there have been no key changes in filing of ITR 7 or it’s content as such but it is important to note that all the trust which were already registered and are filing return for AY 2022-23 might have gone into re-registration process, filed Form 10AB and are requested to quote the new registration number under section 12A/12AA/12AB now while claiming exemption under section 11 or 12 as the new registration number received in Form 10AC will be in record of Income Tax department and if still the old registration number is quoted it might lead to disallowing the exemptions under section 11 and 12.
It is important to note that with the introduction of re-registration, Income tax department has removed the benefit of perpetual registration and hence now the re-registrations will be valid for 5 years and the first 5 years tenure will be from AY 2022-23 to AY 2026-27.
