LATE WAIVER FOR PAST RETURNS (2/2)

Brief Insight in this Respect (NN 52/2020 dated 24.06.2020) 

  • It is to be noted that the relief in late fees is only for GSTR-3B and not for GSTR 1. The benefit is available only if returns are filed between 01 July 2020 to 30 September 2020. The benefit is available to all taxpayers. 
  • Section 47 of the Central Goods and Services Act, 2017 provides that late fees of Rs. 100 per day would be applicable for the late filing of return mentioned under Section 39 of the CGST Act. (This is subject to a maximum cap of Rs 5,000) 
  • However, in terms of Notification No. 76/2018 dated 31-12-2018 where tax payable in GSTR 3B is nil, late fees of Rs 10 per day are levied and in other cases, it is Rs 25 per day.
  • A similar notification is notified under the respective State GST laws.
  • GST council’s decision to waive the late fee for assesses who have not filed any of their GST returns from July 2017 till March 2020 has raised several eyebrows as well.
  • As the waiver has been given with the condition that such return should be filed between July 1st till September 30th, 2020, huge resentment is being witnessed amongst those assesses who have already paid huge penalties and filed their delayed GST returns.
