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.
