New Corporate & Professional Update May 2020

New Corporate & Professional Update:

“Ups and downs are part of life, but to change this time of crisis into a time of opportunity is what gives us a special identity”

Holding this in mind, let us begin by reflecting on our mission and dream, and let us ensure that we have made no mistake in complying with the organization. A few General Conformities referred to in the attached photo. The business and the industry that vary in their wise compliance.

KEY PRACTICAL TAKEAWAYS:

Income Tax:

# CBDT has issued Circular No. 12/2020 dated 20.05.2020 in order to exempt B2B suppliers with 95% or more receipts through non-cash mode to not maintain prescribed payment modes as per Section 269SU such as POS, UPI, UPI-QR, etc.

Note-These assesses can disable these facilities if they are not in operation.

# CBDT released Notification No. 25/2020 dated 20.05.2020 to ensure that the ‘Safe Harbor Principles’ applied in the case of Overseas Transactions shall extend to FY 2020-21 in the same manner as those applied in previous years.

# In the case of a company that opts to pay tax under the “New 22% Scheme” under Section 115BAA, the MAT credit standing in the books must be written off because you will not be eligible to claim the same amount.

Note-Carefully opt for the scheme as the blind application of the 22% tax would eventually cause you a loss.

# TDS The rates have been lowered by 25 percent of the current rates, e.g. 14.05.2020. Here are a few clarifications in this regard:

  • The rate cut shall not extend to TDS for non-residents u / s 195.
  • The rate cut does not occur in non-PAN cases (20 percent FLAT rate) or 206AA cases.
  • The decrease in the TDS rate will apply to invoices due or payments made on or after 14.05.2020, even if the invoice date is before 14.05.2020. What you’ve got to do is “Due or Fee.” When all days occur on or after 14.05.2020, the reduced rate will apply.

# The due dates of ITR for FY 2019-20 have been extended to 30.11.2020 for all assesses. In fact, the due date of the tax assessment in the case of ALL the assesses has been extended to 31.10.2020.

Note-In brief, we should assume that irrespective of whether or not the assessee is subject to a tax audit OR TP audit, the above due dates are valid.

# For the calculation of depreciation under the Income Tax Act, 1961 for the year 2019-20, consider the following:

  1. Remember the effect of the “Leap Year” (i.e. 29.02.2020) on the estimate of 180 days. This period taking 100 percent depreciation for assets underuse after “04.10.2019” instead of 03.10 earlier and 50 percent depreciation for assets underuse after “04.10.2019.”
  2. In the case of a company, whether you take the “22% tax limit” or 115BAA, do not take the “additional depreciation” deduction.

Goods & Services Tax:

# The government. Subsequently, the amendment to Section 140 of the CGST Act 2017 was notified in order to provide the legislative authority to have a time limit for the claim of transitional credit and the invalidation of Delhi HC ‘s decision to offer a time limit for the claim of transitional credit until 30.06.2020.

# whilst still trying to prepare GSTR-9 (Annual Return) for FY 2018-19, in scenario you have paid less tax in your GSTR-3B, you will have to pay the balance tax along with Interest by filing DRC-03 through the common portal.

Note-If paid in DRC-03, the auditor shall not recommend any responsibility in GSTR-9C.

# GST Portal has allowed the Input Service Distributor (ISD) facility to change negative ITC to its Units in the event that no ITC is to be delivered for a month and ISD is needed to distribute ITC reversal via CN.

# Filing of GST Return is compulsory along with payment in case of opting for 15 days relaxation of GSTR-3B filing for taxpayers with a revenue of more than INR 5 crores.

Note-If you pay tax under Cash Ledger and do not file GSTR-3B within the due date + 15 days period, you will have to pay interest at 9 percent before 24.06.2020.

Corporate & Allied law:

MSME Definition: MSME is divided into two main categories:

  1. Manufacturing enterprise; and
  2. Service enterprise.

They are described as below in terms of investment in plant and machinery/equipment.

Illustration 1.

  • Investment: 50 Lakhs
  • Turnover: 4 Cr

As investment is less than 1 Cr and Turnover is less than 5 Cr. It fulfilled both conditions of the Micro category. Hence, it is a Micro-Enterprise.

Illustration 2.

  • Investment: 2 Cr
  • Turnover: 4 Cr

As investment is more than 1 Cr. Therefore, it is outside the purview of Micro Enterprise. As investment is less than 10 Cr and Turnover is less than 50 Cr. It fulfilled both conditions of the small category. Hence, it is a Small Enterprise.

Illustration 3.

  • Investment: 2 Cr
  • Turnover: 60 Cr

As turnover is more than 60 Cr. Therefore, it is outside the purview of Small Enterprise. As investment is less than 20 Cr and Turnover is less than 100 Cr. It fulfilled both conditions of the medium category. Hence, it is a Medium Enterprise.

# In the case of a corporation formed between 01.01.2020 and 31.03.2020, there is no annual compliance with FY 2019-20 except for the appointment of an auditor to the Board of Directors (no requirement for ADT-1) and the submission of an ITR. In other words, the following:

Amendment in Section 140 of the CGST Act 2017: Intends to formalise the gap in the law and to put an end to legal proceedings.

Backdated amendment in Section 140 of the CGST Act 2017: intends to formalise the gap in the law and to put an end to legal proceedings. – Notification No. 43/2020-Central Taxes, dated 16.05.2020

TRANSITIONAL PROVISIONS FOR ITC NOTIFY U / S 140 OF CGST ACT

  • CBDT INFORMED PROVISIONS U / S TRANSITIONAL PROVISIONS FOR ITC
  • TRANSITIONAL CENVAT CREDIT – ENACTED PROVISIONS EFFECTIVE FROM 18.05.2020

CBDT, Ministry of Finance, (Department of Revenue) vide Notification No. 43/2020 –Canter  Tax dated 16 May 2020 has released notification requesting the entry into force of Section 128 of the Finance Act 2020 to amend Section 140 of the CGST Act w.e.f. 01.07.2017.

What was the change to Section 140 of the CGST Act, 2017?

Section 140 of the CGST Act deals with transitional GST payments. The terms “within that period” have been used in the various clauses of Section 140 of the CGST Act, 2017 of the Finance Act, 2020. The said change has a retrospective effect from 1 July 2017, i.e. the very first day of introduction of the GST. However, until now, that provision of the Finance Act 2020 has not been put into force. The reform has now been enforced by CBIC empty Notice No. 43/2020-Central Tax dated 16.05.2020 from 18 May 2020.

What was the need for an amendment?

Previous to the amendment referred to above, Section 140 did not include a time limit on the use of transitional GST credits. However, Rule 117 of the CGST Rules 2017 does contain a time limit, but in the past two years, different writs have been filed by taxpayers before the High Courts challenging the validity of the time limit laid down in Rule 117 of the CGST Rules 2017 for the use of transitional credits under the GST.

The High Courts held that the CGST Rules could not supersede the CGST Act. Since the CGST Act does not allow any time limit for the use of transitional credits under the GST, therefore, the CGST Rules that set the time limit for the use of transitional credits are unconstitutional. There has since been pending lawsuits surrounding the legitimacy of Rule 117.

The amendment referred to above seeks to regularize the gap in the law and to put an end to the dispute with regard to the validity of Rule 117 of the CGST Rules.

What will be the effective date of amendment?

While the above amendments to section 140 of the CGST Act is valid as of 01 July 2017, section 128 of the finance bill 2020 (through which the above amendment was made) has been in force as of 18 May 2020. This means that the law does not plan to reverse the actions of taxpayers until 18 May 2020.

# For the calculation of depreciation under the Income Tax Act , 1961 for the year 2019-20, know the following:

  • Recognize the effect of the “Leap Year” (i.e. 29.02.2020) on the measurement of 180 days. This year taking 100 percent depreciation for assets under use before “04.10.2019” instead of 03.10 earlier and 50 percent depreciation for assets under use after “04.10.2019.”

# TDS The rates have been decreased by 25 per cent of the current rates, e.g. 14.05.2020. Here are a few clarifications in this regard:

  • The rate decrease shall not apply to TDS for non-residents u / s 195.
  • The rate cut does not extend to non-PAN cases (20% FLAT Limit) u / s 206AA.
  • The change in the TDS rate would refer on invoices due or purchases received on or after 14.05.2020, even though the invoice date is before 14.05.2020. What you’ve got to see is “Due or Payment.” If all dates occur on or after 14.05.2020, the reduced rate will apply.

How to establish a Specialty in CA Practices:

After the practicalities of financial accounting are well known, the next step is to define the field of specialty that will require the following steps:

  • Identifying the content of the analysis in order to achieve an in-depth under-statement of the topic of specialization.
  • Identifying every particular course like crash courses in a given area.
  • Search for ways to teach the desired area of specialty and continue teaching.
  • Being affiliated with a big firm/organization where the preferred subject is still being practiced.
  • Going to attend lectures and sessions on the topic.
  • A person makes your influence known in a number of conferences, conferences on a specific subject by expressing your point of view and challenging conventional thought.
  • Full price Models and interviews with professionals and advisors.
  • Participation of posts to CA journals.
  • Subscribing to specialist journals in the field — domestic and worldwide.
  • Identify and follow best practices constantly

If you’d like to expand your practice to have a high type of expertise, you need to introduce more and more professionals with strong experience. Never add working or working partners. Since they will not be able to contribute to work, but will still have some hope, so you will always have to work harder to satisfy their demands.

Allow a strong difference between trained workers and collaborators, because they will operate on the same activities. Their duty and responsibilities should be explicitly outlined in order to bring an end to any future conflict.

Certificate Form 15CA CB for making payments abroad

Certificate Form 15CA CB for making payments abroad

Generally, 15CA CB is not necessary to make a payment abroad in the event that costs fall below the defined limit. That’s because you’re a member of the Remittee. In the case of rent charged to NRIs / foreign vendor, Pursuant to Section 195 of the Income Tax Act 1961, any person liable for making a payment to non-residents shall subtract TDS at the rates in place from the payments rendered or credits granted to non-residents. The Reserve Bank of India also requires that, with the exception of such personal remittances that have been expressly removed, no remittances should be rendered to a non-resident without sending an undertaking in Form 15CA followed by an accountant’s certificate in Form 15CB, Remember that this is

  • Individuals making payment for bills/invoices must apply Form 15CA to the income tax portal each time before paying for the excess of expenses.
  • In fact, if the cumulative amount to be made each year reaches Rs 5 lakh, the Remitter must receive Form 15CB from the Chartered Accountant.

When you make a payment to a foreign seller, it is your duty to figure out if the Remittee is an NRI. This makes it easier for you to subtract TDS for the invoice to be received and to comply with the Income Tax Act. The aim of this undertaking and credential is to raise taxes as the remittance is made, because it will not be practicable for the non-residents to reclaim the tax at a later date. The format of the undertaking to be registered electronically in Form 15CA and the format of the Accountant’s certificate in Form 15CB were notified vide Rule 37BB of the Income Tax Rules 1962

Revised guidelines on filing forms 15CA and 15CB

The latest guidelines to register electronic forms 15CA and 15CB are valid as of 1 April 2016. The comprehensive procedure for filing the form as per requirement is focused on new laws that follow. The income tax department has updated the rules governing the preparation and delivery of Form 15CA and Form 15CB (see previous Form 15CB regulations). As of 1 April 2016, updated rules became applicable.

Major changes are as follows –

  • Form 15CA and 15CB shall NOT be needed to be submitted by a person for remittance which does not require RBI approval
  • List of payments of a defined nature referred to in Rule 37BB, which do not require the submission of Form 15CA and Form 15CB, has been extended from 28 to 33 including import payments
  • Form No. 15CB will only be needed for non-resident payments which are taxable and surpass Rs. 5 lakhs.
  • Only Part A of 15CA is required when the volume of payment or the number of these payments made during the financial year does not exceed five lakh rupees
  • Part B of 15CA to be filled in the event of receiving a certificate from the Assessing Officer pursuant to section 197 or an order from the Assessing Officer pursuant to subsection (2) or subsection (3) of section 195. For example, Form 15CB is not necessary if order or certificate is obtained from AO
  • Part C of 15CA may be filled out after a Chartered Accountant obtains a certificate in Form No. 15CB
  • Part D of Type No.15CA where there is some amount not paid under the terms of the Act. For eg, Form 15CB is not needed if the remittance is not taxable
  • 1 lakh penalty will apply for each non-filing default for 15CA / CB certification

Forms 15CA and 15CB are of considerable interest nowadays. We professional at least have to issue one Form 15CB on a routine basis and 15CA form is also to be generated on behalf by the professional. Form 15CA is a Remitter Certification that is used as a method for collecting data about transfers that are taxable in the hands of non-resident users. It begins with an effective information retrieval program that the Income Tax Department will use to track foreign remittances separately and their existence to assess tax liability. The mechanism for picking cases for scrutiny has dramatically deteriorated in modern times and without an inspection, there was no test to ensure that taxable foreign remittances were made after-tax deduction or not. So the remittance path, i.e. Banks were led to acquiring Form 15CA and Form 15CB before allowing any remittance.

Authorized Dealers / Banks are now becoming more cautious in ensuring that all these Forms are collected by them before they are remitted, as now, in accordance with the revised Rule 37BB, they are expected to file Form 15CA obtained from the remitter, with the income tax authority for any proceedings under the Income Tax Act and also with the revised FEMA Guidelines released. In this regard, as per the updated RBI Guidelines, The RBI does not provide guidelines on the deduction of tax on international remittances at the source. The banks, therefore, encourage remitters to have these Type 15CA and 15CB even while buying imports.

Here’s an effort to render a detailed checklist/procedure for furnishing Form 15CA and Form 15CB effectively.

Complete Understanding about Form 15CA, Form 15CB

Form 15CA and 15CB: Complete Details With Examples

International transactions come with a lot of tax implications. And one often is absent on these.

Section 195 of the Income Tax Act specifies that we withhold tax on sums that are taxable under the Statute. And the banks maintain these databases for financial transactions. Additionally, anytime we make some payment to a non-resident, the bank tests whether or not we have paid duty. So for that dimension, they depend on Chartered Accountants certificates. We are sending this information to banks with Form 15CA and CB. Type 15 CB is usually prepared and approved by CA. This blog explains Applicability of Form 15CA and Form 15CB w.r.t Taxability under the IT Act, Overview of Section 9 and Documentation needed for Form 15CA and Form 15CB, What is necessary of Form 15CA and Form 15CB, What is Form 15CA and Form 15CB, Payment / Remittances does not require Form 15CA & Form 15CB, which requires Remitter information, Remittee information, Remittance details, Bank details of the Remittance.

What is Form 15CA?

Shape 15CA is remitter’s declaration. And a method used to collect information about payments made to non-residents. Indeed the form includes the remittance information. As well as the transaction’s tax details. In fact, whether or not the invoice is subject to vat.

Registered dealers and banks are now making sure we pay taxes on purchases that are made by them. And they are asking us to request these forms before the transaction is processed. They compile those forms and exchange them with the tax authority in addition.

This actually forms part of an Income Tax Department Information Management Framework. To assess tax responsibility, it monitors the overseas remittances and their existence. Department of Income Tax has also created an online facility to file these documents. Therefore we register Form 15CA with the IT department online. Though we are still printing and sharing the details with the bank / AD after submission online.

Difference Part in the Form 15CA

We divide form 15CA into 4 parts––

  • Section A:– Where the remittance or sum of these remittance will not surpass 5 lakh rupees during the F.Y. (Taxable, or not).
  • PART B: – Where the A.O. has obtained an order / certificate u / s 195(2)/195(3)/197 of the Income Tax Act; (If Nil or Lower rate certificate).
  • PART C: – Where, during the FY, the remittance or the sum of such remittance crosses 5 lakh rupees.
  • PART D: – Where the remittance is not tax-due

What is Form 15CB?

Form 15 CB is a certificate, and a Chartered Accountant is required to sign. The certificate sets down in detail the rates and taxes payable. Or in some situations, explanations why taxes are paid. All types have basically the same material. 15CB does require registration, however. We also file Form 15CB first as its acknowledgment number is provided while filling the Form 15CA.

Form 15CA CB Applicability

Whether furnishing forms 15CA & 15CB are required for each and every foreign transaction?

In addition, as per the Updated Income Tax Laws, we now only need Form No. 15CB for all taxable and exceeding Rs 5 lakhs payments.

The following types of transactions are not needed for the 15CA CB form:

  • An individual transaction that doesn’t need RBI permission.
  • Payments of a specified nature referred to in Rule 37BB (shared shortly below).However, we’ve heard of cases where banks still ask for a 15CA CB even when not needed.

Where payment is made below Rs 5 lakh

Information for these payments is provided in Part A of Form 15CA

Where payment crosses Rs 5 lakh

  • Part B of Form 15CA must be issued

  • Inflation forecasts by the central bank have gone awry only at time of low food inflation. In most other, forecasts have remained almost close to actual, and in line with the trend in the forecast of other central banks, according to an RBI study. “Episodes of large inflation forecasts errors for India were associated with large and unanticipated shocks emanating from prices of food items, especially perishables such as vegetables” according to sources.
  • The research indicated that a cross-country evidence of data analysed from select central banks suggests that there is a positive correlation of forecast errors with the share of food in the CPI basket. In other words, inflation forecast errors are linked to the share of food inflation in the consumer price basket and the divergence tends to be more with higher weightage of food.

The CGST target in the Union Budget for 2019-20 is Rs 6.1 trillion. “The April collection indicates the tax base is increasing gradually, with GST getting stabilised with measures such as e-way bills and effective data  Perhaps one reason for this increase was also a push from businesses to their vendors for reporting sales of 2017-18, for which the last date of claiming credit coincides with GST filings for the month of March,” said Pratik Jain, partner at consultancy PwC India. He felt one could now expect the monthly collection to regularly exceed Rs 1 trillion.
