GST Notifications from 1st April 2023


Recently, the Government of India has issued GST notifications regarding updates to the Central Tax system in India, which will be effective from April 1, 2023. These GST notifications updates cover various topics, including late fees for certain returns, changes in registration and assessment procedures, and more. Here are some important points to note:

  1. Late fee for GSTR 4: If GSTR 4 returns are filed late between April 1, 2023, and June 30, 2023, for the quarters from July 2017 to March 2019 or FY 2019-20 to FY 2021-22, the late fee will be restricted to Rs. 500. This is good news for those who missed the original deadline but still need to file their GSTR 4 returns for the specified period.
  2. Revocation of cancellation of registration: A special procedure has been introduced for those whose registration was cancelled on or before December 31, 2022. The revocation application needs to be filed before June 30, 2023, and only after filing all returns along with payment of tax up to the effective date of cancellation. It’s important to note that there will be no further extension of the time period for filing the application.
  3. Changes to registration process: The CGST (Amendment) Rules, 2023 have made changes to the registration process. Sub-rule (4A) has been amended to explain the authentication of Aadhaar during registration. The biometric-based Aadhaar authentication and taking a photograph of the applicant have been amended as a proviso to the said rule. Sub-rule (4B) has been amended to give effect to the proviso in sub-rule (4A), making it applicable only to the state of Gujarat.
  4. Assessment of non-filers: For those who have not filed their returns, a special procedure for the assessment of non-filers has been introduced. The assessment will be withdrawn if the returns are furnished on or before June 30, 2023, along with payment of interest under section 50 and late fees under section 47.

These GST notifications aim to make the tax system more efficient and user-friendly for taxpayers in India. It’s important for taxpayers to stay informed about these changes and comply with the updated regulations to avoid any penalties or legal consequences.

Late fees for certain returns have also been revised. For GSTR 9, if filed late between April 1, 2023, and June 30, 2023, the late fee will be restricted to Rs. 20,000 for the FY 2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20, 2020-21, or 2021-22. Late fees for GSTR 9 from FY 22-23 onwards will be as follows :

Turnover Late Fees
Upto Rs 5 crore   Rs 50 per day, maximum 0.04% of turnover
Above 5 crore and upto Rs 20 crore  Rs 100 Per day, maximum 0.04% of turnover
Above Rs 20 Crore Rs 200 Per day,maximum 0.5% of turnover

Similarly, for GSTR 10, if filed late between April 1, 2023, and June 30, 2023, the late fee will be restricted to Rs. 1,000.   Finally, the time limit for the issuance of orders under section 73(9) has been extended for FY 17-18 up to December 31, 2023, for FY 18-19 up to March 31, 2024, and for FY 19-20 up to June 30, 2024.

I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
