Extension of the due date of GST compliance was announced by the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) and the validity of the E-way bill till October 31, 2020, in respect of goods sent/taken on approval for sale/return are removed before the supply takes place.
CBIC attempts to amend notification of the Government of India in the Ministry of Finance (Department of Revenue), No. 35/2020-Central Tax, dated the 3rd April 2020. It seeks to amend clause (i) of the said notification for the extension of the due date of compliance that falls between the period from the 20th day of March 2020 to the 29th day of June, to 30th day of June 2020.
The following sentence is to be inserted in the above-mentioned notification in the first paragraph, in clause (i), after the first proviso, “provided further that where, any time limit for completion or compliance of any action, by any person, has been specified in, or prescribed or notified under sub-section (7) of section 31 of the said Act in respect of goods being sent or taken out of India on approval for sale or return, which falls during the period from the 20th day of March 2020 to the 30th day of October 2020, and where completion or compliance of such action has not been made within such time, then, the time limit for completion or compliance of such action, shall stand extended up to the 31st day of October 2020.”
“Where the goods being sent or taken on approval for sale or return are removed before the supply takes place, the invoice shall be issued before or at the time of supply or six months from the date of removal, whichever is earlier,” states the Section 31(7) of the Union Territory Goods and Service Tax Act.
