GST returns extended from 30 Apr to 11 May 2020
In light of the latest measures that the government has introduced to combat COVID-19 last week, the filing due date for all GST returns due in Apr 2020 will be automatically extended to 11 May 2020. You do not need to write in to IRAS. The filing due date will be automatically extended for all GST returns due in Apr 2020 including:
• Quarterly GST return from 1 Jan 2020 to 31 Mar 2020
• Monthly GST return for 1 Mar 2020 to 31 Mar 2020
• Half-yearly GST return from 1 Oct 2019 to 31 Mar 2020
• All special accounting periods ending in Mar 2020
The payment due date will also be extended to 11 May 2020. For those on GIRO, the deduction date remains as 15 May 2020. So please ensure sufficient funds in your designated bank account for GIRO should you be in a net GST payable position.
(NOTE: The 30 Apr 2020 due date shown in the “File GST Return e-Service” on myTax Portal will not be updated. Nevertheless, please be assured that extensions have been granted and no penalties will be payable if you file your return by 11 May 2020.)
