GSTR-9 and GSTR-9C due date extended to 28.02.2022 for the financial year 2020-21
The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) has extended the due date for furnishing annual return in FORM GSTR-9 & self-certified reconciliation statement in FORM GSTR-9C for the financial year 2020-21 to 28.02.2022. Notification No.40/2021-Central Tax dated 29.12.2021 to this effect has been issued.
This extension was given on the basis of various representations received from the stakeholders. It is necessary to extend the due dates because 31.12.2021 is the last date for ITR filing, ROC filing (extended today), and also for GSTR-9 and GSTR-9C.
So on the same day, many compliances become burden for various stakeholders, considering the difficulties government decided to extend the due dates for GSTR-9 and GSTR-9C
