Request for Extend due date of filing ITRs of 31st July, 2017 to 30th Sep, 2017Due to the implementation of the GST law from 01.07.2017 and the necessity of linking of PAN with Aadhaar Number from 01.07.2017 while filing ITR, has caused severe problems to tax-payers. When the last date for filing ITR approaches the income tax e-filing site suffers great slowdown thereby leading to delay in filing the same as also once the session of login at e-filing portal is over the user has to re-enter the required details for login which involves a great hectic for the user especially in reference to the tax consultants, chartered accountants who file the large number of ITRs of their clients.Not only this, sometimes it also happens that the site goes under repair or shows technical problems in last days, even at the eleventh hour of filing the ITRs, which leads to the waste of the valuable time of the persons filing the ITRs .Therefore, looking to the above problems, keeping in view the interests of the taxpayers the e-filing site should be made more well equipped with the functions which provide the users of the site to restore the work done by them before the hanging up of the site and such breakdown of the site must be prevented. Assessees are getting messages for filing their ITR on due date of 31 July. The welfare of the honest taxpayers also lies in providing of the basic e-filing facilities and timely availability of the income tax e-filing site in working condition for the online submission of ITRs. In view of these hardships, faced by the users until the e-filing site is made more secured and strong enough the due date for the filing of returns must be extended in order to protect the taxpayers who are willing to file timely ITRs but due to the problems inherited in the site they are finding it difficult to do so on “due date”.As per Explanation 2 of section 139(1) of the Income Tax Act, 1961, for the purposes of the sub-section (1) of section 139, “due date” means, —×(a) where the assessee [other than an assessee referred to in clause (aa)] is—(i) a company; or(ii) a person (other than a company) whose accounts are required to be audited under this Act or under any other law for the time being in force; or(iii) a working partner of a firm whose accounts are required to be audited under this Act or under any other law for the time being in force, the 30th day of September of the assessment year;(aa) in the case of an assessee who is required to furnish a report referred to in section 92E, the 30th day of November of the assessment year;(b) in the case of a person other than a company, referred to in the first proviso to this sub-section, the 31st day of October of the assessment year;(c) in the case of any other assessee, the 31st day of July of the assessment year.Therefore, keeping in view the hard realities due date, 31 July of filing income tax return should be extended to 30.09.2017 as correction in the PAN and Aadhaar, wherever is not linking, is also taking time and there are problems of internet, e-filing site and works relating to newly implemented GST.

Big Blunder in GST, If You Do These 5 Compliance MistakesGST will be soon going to be implemented across the nation on the July 1st, while all the rules and regulations are decided by the GST council. The last meeting will be held on 30 June to finalise and tie an inaugural band over the GST for the launching. A draft rule under the GST termed tax collected at source is well opposed by the e-commerce organisations. The reason being the capital will be stuck within the procedure and may create a shortage of revenue to invest further into the business operation.Now, there are multiple ways to get ahead in the business terms, while it is also suspected that a business unit may create an issue for itself. Therefore, we want you to take note of some highly vulnerable points that a business man can take while running his business.Never Issue Fake InvoiceAs soon as the GST gets implemented, take note of this suggestions. It will be considered as a crime to issue a different and non-related invoice to any party. While supplying goods without issuing an invoice and giving benefits to any person by providing him fake invoice will also come under the category of crime. It will be better to avoid this kind of practices to ensure safe operation of your business.Avoid Giving Wrong Details in the RegistrationAs know, the migration process for GST is running across the nation and a dedicated window has been opened for it two times. A third phase of the enrollment window will be available from 25 June. So, in order to register your business unit under the GST, make sure you provide true information regarding your business with accurate financial details. Never try to present fake financial records to save taxes. As the government has already warned that after the migrations, the data can be scrutinized and if caught, the business unit and the associated taxpayers will be in great trouble.Always Submit the GST to the GovernmentIt must be also in the high priority that the GST collected from the customers must be submitted to the government within three months failing which may lead to the criminal case and appropriate actions will be taken against the taxpayer.Always Make Sure of Original Documents with the LogisticsAccording to the newly incorporated GST laws, any goods without the original documents and invoices being caught in transit will be considered as illegal and will be termed as a crime. Ensure that all your goods are with original documents as a proof in front of inspecting authorities.Never Use Rubbish GST Compliance SoftwareIt is advisable to use a best in class GST software for your billing, return and accounting work. Many software companies are advertising to be the best so it is difficult to choose between them. SAG Infotech suggests you to go for a recommended GST compliance software by tax experts for your proper and timely GST related task so people must review every software features before buying one of them.

GSTN Chairperson Cleared Doubts and Questions Regarding GST RolloutNavin Kumar the chairperson of GST Network assured that the IT platform will be available for the full usage from July 15 and the stabilization will only come after 3 to 4 months after the roll of GST. Some of the questions were raised in front of him which was answered in his own way:What are the insights about the upcoming GST roll out and what are the workings?On this question, he answered that “We are very, very stressed now. We are working 28 hours a day.”Asking about the public need of knowledge and the question that many people must be approaching you for all their registration needs the Chairperson replied that, “Industry generally talks to the government, but, yes, we keep getting tweets and messages. There was some problem when enrolment was on and the tax department cancelled a lot of registered service taxpayers that had got provisional IDs as they were apparently not active. These 50-60 people lined up at our office. We then referred the matter to the tax department and it was resolved.”The confidence also rose over the testing of the software, as the chairperson assured that the software is fairly working while also mentioning that the beta test could not be possible. He said that “It should be a stable system. Problems that surfaced during the first phase of the testing have been resolved. We did the testing on the basis of the rules that came in December. After that, some changes were made to the rules. Those changes we have absorbed now, so there is no time to do beta testing for that. Other than that, we have done all other tests. So, we are fairly confident of the system.”While asking about the July launching the chairperson was reluctant and mentioned some strict policies which must be handled before the launching. He said that “If we had more time, we would have been perhaps better-placed. When we started with Infosys, the GST was not in sight. The Constitution Amendment Bill was still in Parliament and we were in a dilemma. The project was costing Rs 1, 400 crore. Could we make a commitment when the GST is not there? We went to the empowered committee of state finance ministers and apprised them of the situation. Our proposal was to let us develop the software and hold back on the hardware, where all the money goes. They agreed and allowed us to work on the draft processes. The software development started after the draft law was approved. The model law was put in the public domain in May and was revised in November, and the rules were given in December. All the development till then was modified on the basis of the December rules. After the central registration, there have been further revisions, necessitating more changes in the software. Thankfully, those are not very many.”And asking about the final completion he mentioned that, “We have been working on that. For return form GSTR 1, the coding has been done and the testing is also at a very advanced stage. By July 15, GSTR 1 will be ready. GSTR 2 will be ready by the end of July and GSTR 3 will be ready 10 days after that. But you have to see how things have evolved. So, we are just in time. But the good thing is that the GST Council did not defer the roll-out. Starting from July 1, the system will be available in a staggered fashion.”While discussing the API issues and relatively lesser available APIs to the GSPs was creating problems and the chairperson stated that “When we developed the software based on the December rules, we provided APIs to GSPs. But half of them thought of waiting until the legislation was in place as it would have gone through changes. These are people who did not work on the basis of the December APIs. But there are others who did so. Through discussion, we have worked out timelines for GSTR 1, GSTR 2, and GSTR3. We will give them GSTR 1 by June 28 so that they can be ready for the invoice upload facility by July 15. The other two APIs for GSTR 2 and 3 will be given after that.”

GST regime: Food industry happy at lower levy, but branded wheat players soreThe food and meat processing industry on Friday largely welcomed the new tax rates announced at the GST Council meeting in Srinagar, but some of them are concerned about certain GST fitment rates.While foodgrains and raw food items were exempted from tax, most processed products will attract lower taxes than the existing rates.“We will benefit from the decision as ready-to-fry products will attract only 12 per cent, against 14.5 per cent that we pay currently in most South Indian States where we operate, ” says Srinivas Shenoy, a senior official with the ₹300-crore Abad Fisheries Private Limited, in Kochi. In Karnataka, it is even higher at 15.5 per cent, he said.“The fitment of a GST rate of 5 per cent on edible oils as approved is more or less on expected lines. However, a GST rate of 12 per cent on soya bari and 5 per cent on soya flour comes as a disappointment, ” said Dinesh Shahra, Founder and Managing Director of Ruchi Soya Industries Ltd.“We hope that the government will relook at the GST rates on texturised vegetable proteins, commonly known as soya bari, and soya flour and bring them to the tax-exempt category to promote the use of soya protein to prevent and treat protein malnutrition in the country."Soya protein is the least expensive and nutritionally the most valuable and economical protein.Neutral impactThe impact of GST rates on farm products such as edible oils, tea and coffee is seen as neutral, with no major impact on the end-prices for consumers, while a zero-tax on unbranded wheat products such as atta, maida and sooji may make them cheaper.“The rates that we now see may not have any major impact on the retail prices of edible oils. For the industry, the GST rates are more or less in line with the expectations, " said Atul Chaturvedi, president, the Solvent Extractors' Association of India (SEA).A 5 per cent GST on branded wheat products could make them marginally expensive as the industry may chose to pass the tax burden to consumers. However, a zero tax on unbranded wheat products could make them cheaper. In the current tax structure, various States have levied a tax of 2-4 per cent on wheat products.“Wheat is a staple food for everybody. It is heartening to know that the government has exempted wheat and unbranded wheat products from GST. But given the consumers’ preference for food safety law-compliant products, such a move will be dampener on the branded players. They will pass on price hikes to consumers, " said AN Gupta, former chairman of Wheat Products Promotion Society. Players in the plantation segment such as tea and coffee said the 5 per cent levy was on expected lines and that it would not have any impact on consumers.
