All About Amnesty Scheme.

The GST Amnesty Scheme has been reintroduced with the help of the authorities to provide relief to taxpayers who failed to submit GSTR-3B for previous tax periods.

In this post, you’ll learn everything you need to know about the scheme’s application, benefits, and operation, as well as the most recent modifications. Find out about the long-overdue price reductions, as well as the challenges that remain unsolved and possible remedies.

The GST Amnesty Scheme was initially notified to cover intervals starting in July 2017 and ending in September 2018. Then, a one-time extension to the time limit was made available. Taxpayers must file any outstanding taxes by March 31st, 2019.

Because of the COVID epidemic, several tax professionals and business leaders urged the government to revive the GST amnesty plan for many months in early 2020. Their plea was eventually granted by the authorities.

According to the most recent Central Tax announcement number 33/2021, which was released on August 19, 2021, the GST amnesty scheme’s validity has been extended until November 30, 2021, from the earlier deadline of August 31, 2021. It means that taxpayers with delayed GSTR-3B returns between July 2017 and April 2021 can file them on or before November 30, 2021, at a discounted most late charge.

The taxpayers would benefit from this relief since they will no longer have to incur significant late fines, which would otherwise deter them from filing any pending GSTR-3B returns. Furthermore, it enables taxpayers to rebuild their businesses after being severely harmed by lockdowns and vulnerable financial positions as a result of the epidemic.

The GST Amnesty Scheme was implemented for the second time by CBIC via a notification dated June 1, 2021. It affects all outstanding GSTR-3B returns for the tax periods between July 2017 and April 2021.
