The month of June is about to end and there is something very important all PAN Card holders must do. Otherwise, they will have to pay Rs. 10,000. Many people know that June 30, 2020 is the last date to link PAN cards with Aadhaar cards. But, not many know that if they fail to do this, they will have to pay this massive amount as per Section 272B of the Income Tax Act.

Earlier, the deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar card was March 31, 2020. However, due to the nationwide lockdown, the government shifted the last date to June 30.

What Will Happen?

As per reports, if PAN Card holders fail to link their PAN and Aadhaar, then their PAN cards will be declared as ‘inoperative’. This will mean that they will not be able to hold any financial transactions linked with PAN.

Now, the Income Tax (IT) Department has released a new notification. According to this notification, PAN card holders will face strict consequences like paying penalty of Rs.10,000 if they miss the deadline.

Therefore, if you are among those whose Aadhaar is not linked, make sure you complete the step before it is too late.

CBIC Puts End to Controversy Over GST On Company Directors’ Salary

Sun Jun 14 2020 / By: Rashmi

Earlier this financial year, a lot of controversies stirred around company directors’ salary, whether a GST should be collected or not. Putting an end to that, the Finance Ministry has released a circular saying that Goods and Services Tax (GST) will not be levied on the salaries of the directors who are employees of the company.

The issue was examined for two categories. The first one referred to the independent directors and the others referred to the whole-time directors like Managing Directors treated as the employees of the company.

Important Points Of The Circular

The circular was released by the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC), the policy making body for indirect taxes under the Finance Ministry. It stated, “The part of director's remuneration that are declared as ‘salaries’ in the books of a company and subjected to TDS under Section 192 of the IT Act, are not taxable being consideration for services by an employee to the employer in the course of or in relation to his employment in terms of Schedule III of the CGST Act, 2017.”

However, there are other factors that can be subjected to GST. Below are the conditions under which the directors’ remuneration will be taxable:

·     The remuneration that is not declared as ‘salary’ in the company’s accounts and is subjected to TDS under Section 194J of the IT act as fee for professional and technical services.

·     The remuneration paid to independent directors or those directors who are not the employees of the company on reverse charge basis. These lie clearly outside the scope of Schedule III of the CGST and are taxable.

As per the media reports, at least 18 per cent GST will be charged on the payments. Also, it is the responsibility of the company to collect the GST and give it to the government.

The Controversy


The controversy around company directors’ began earlier in this financial year when Advance Ruling Authorities held different views on the levy of GST on remuneration paid to Directors of a company.

In the case of M/s Clay Craft Indian Private Limited, ARA Rajasthan held that company directors cannot be treated as the employees of the company and their remuneration should be taxable. This was later troubled when ARA, Karnataka stated the contrasting statement. It said that all the remuneration paid to the directors cannot be said to be leviable under GST.

These contradictions caused a lot of stir in the industry and everyone was keenly waiting for a judgement by the higher authorities. The new circular has now given relief to all taxpayers by interestingly intertwining the Income Tax Act and the GST provisions and ending the controversy.

Extension of PPF Deposit: What You Need To Know Before June 30

Tue Jun 09 2020 / By: Rashmi

After the announcement of nation-wide lockdown, the government also allowed the extension of deposits such as Public Provident Fund (PPF) and Sukanya Samriddhi Account (SSA) holders.

When the extension of three months was announced, the deadline was March 31, 2020. But later, it was pushed till June 30, 2020, for the complete the tax-saving exercise for FY2019-20. And now with the date coming closer, people are a bit confused about what to do.

Here are five things you must know about PPF extension for FY20:

1.      Even though you have passed the last final date i.e., 31st March 2020, you will not be charged with any penalty or revival fee if you make the PPF deposit till June 30. This is also applicable to other small savings schemes.

2.     The default fee will be charged only if your account has remained inoperative before FY20.

3.    Not just deposit, you can also extend their accounts, if they have matured on 31st March 2020.

4.    Due to some changes in the rules in the last fiscal year, PPF account holders can now make deposits in the multiples of Rs. 50 any number of times in a financial year, with a maximum of a combined deposit of Rs. 1.5 lakh a year. 

5.    Now for the withdrawn limit and loan, the balance in PPF and SSY on March 31 will be taken into account instead of June 30.

Other Financial Deadlines

It was not just PFF and SSA holders who got the extension. The government has also extended the last date for various payments and extensions in the past two months.

Here are some of the money-related tasks you must complete along with your PPF deposit before June 30, 2020:

●      Tax Saving Investments For FY20

For tax-saving investments, the government extended the last date to June 30, 2020, from March 31, 2020. So, if you have any investments eligible under section 80C, expenditure on health insurance premium eligible for deduction under section 80D, etc., start making it soon.

●      Linking of PAN with Aadhaar

Earlier, the last date for linking your PAN card to Aadhaar was March 31, 2020. But due to the coronavirus lockdown, the Indian government decided to shift the date to June 30, 2020.

Now, if you do not link your PAN with Aadhaar before this deadline, it will become invalid. You will not be able to conduct financial transactions using your PAN.

●      Income Tax Returns

Just like others, the government also extended the deadline for filing belated and revised ITRs for FY 2018-19 to June 30, 2020. If you miss it, you will have to pay a penalty for the same.
