I-T dept again defers GST, GAAR reporting in tax audit report till March 2020.


Date: 15-05-2019
Subject: I-T dept again defers GST, GAAR reporting in tax audit report till March 2020
The income tax department May 14 deferred for the second time the requirement for companies to include in their tax audit report the details of Goods and Services Tax (GST) and GAAR.

The reporting requirement of these details in income tax audit form has been kept in abeyance till March 31, 2020 -- meaning that all income tax audit reports need not include details on GST and General Anti-Avoidance Rules (GAAR) till March 2020.

Business entities having a turnover of more than Rs 1 crore (or Rs 2 crore if they have opted for presumptive taxation) and professionals with gross receipts of more than Rs 50 lakh have to comply with the tax audit requirements.

The due date for its filing is September 30 and if the taxpayer is covered by transfer pricing provisions, the due date is November 30.

The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) in an order issued Tuesday, said the Board has received representations that implementation of reporting requirements under clause 30C (pertaining to GAAR) and clause 44 (pertaining to GST compliance) of the Form No 3CD may be deferred further.

"The matter has been examined and it has been decided by the Board that the reporting under clause 30C and clause 44 of the Tax Audit Report shall be kept in abeyance till March 31, 2020," the CBDT said.

In July 2018, the I-T department had changed the tax audit form - 3CD, seeking details under GST as well as GAAR, which seeks to prevent companies from routing transactions through other countries to avoid taxes. The changes were to come into effect from August 20, 2018.

With stakeholders complaining that the change is onerous and a burden on companies, the CBDT had then deferred the implementation of the change in I-T audit form till March 31, 2019.

With Tuesday's order, its implementation has been further deferred till March 31, 2020.

Nangia Advisors (Andersen Global) said Managing Partner Rakesh Nangia said: "It is anticipated that there would be a fair and detailed guidance on aspects such as no GAAR certification - an area devoid of precedence and largely characterised by interpretational issues, before the reporting requirement is made operative post March 31, 2020".

Ashok Maheshwary & Associates LLP Partner Amit Maheshwari said this deferment comes as a relief to the auditors.

"Currently, the requirements are difficult to comply with and the practitioners are not properly prepared. The lack of clarity in these clauses has made it very difficult to comply with," Maheshwari added.
