Earlier the last date for submitting GST returns with reduced late fees was August 31, 2021.
"The Government had provided relief to the taxpayers by reducing or waiving late fee for non-furnishing Form GSTR-3B for the tax periods from July 2017 to April 2021, if the returns for these tax periods are furnished between June 1, 2021 to August 31, 2021," a Finance Ministry notification said.
The Finance Ministry said that the extension was given on the basis of several representations received from establishments, who requested for more time to do the needful.
The due date of filing the application for revocation of cancellation of registration, has been extended till September 30, 2021. The actual date for it was August 31, 2021. The extension however would be applicable only in those cases where registrations have been cancelled under clause (b) or clause (c) of sub-section (2) of section 29 of the CGST Act.
