Request for Extension of Due Dates for Filing of GST Annual Return, GSTR9 and GSTR-9C — Self Certified Audit.
Honorable Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman ji
Finance Ministry of GOI
North Block, New Delhi- 110001
Respected Madam, With reference to above subject we are requesting to your good self that the due date for the annual return for the year ending 31st March 2021, which is 28th Feb 2022, but due to the circumstances known to everybody, it is not possible for the dealers and professions to follow and compile up to this date. The main reason of the request is that the due dates for finalizing the Income Tax audit for the above-mentioned assessment year was 15th Feb 2022, hence in most of the cases only 13 days are there to file the annual return GSTR9 and Self Certified GST Audit —GSTR9C.
Respected Madam, the fact is that no major revenue collection is attached with the filing of these annual returns and Audit returns and further assessments of previous years are also pending so these returns will serve no substantial purpose as far as strict date is followed hence your good self is therefore requested to please extend these due dates to 31stMarch 2022 for the benefit of Taxpayers and Professionals.
Hope Honorable Madam will consider the request and provide the relaxations by extending the due dates.
