1. The GST Portal is now accepting applications for revocation of canceled GST registration.
2. As per notification no. 34/2021-CGST dated 29th Aug 2021, the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) notified the extension of the due date to September 30, 2021, for filing an application for revocation of cancellation of registration where the due date falls between March 1, 2020, to August 31, 2021.
3. The extension would be applicable only in those cases where registrations have been canceled under clause (b) or clause (c) of sub-section (2) of section 29 of the CGST Act.
4. The extension of the closing date of the late fee amnesty scheme and extension of the time limit for filing of the application for revocation of cancellation of registration will benefit a large number of taxpayers, especially small taxpayers, who could not file their returns in time due to various reasons, mainly because of difficulties caused by COVID-19 pandemic, and whose registrations were canceled due to the same. Taxpayers are requested to avail the benefit of these extensions at the earliest to avoid the last-minute rush.
