PAN-Aadhaar linking: As per the new notification issued by the SBI, all account holders are required to link their PAN cards to their Aadhaar cards by September 30, 2021. If the customers are not able to link their PAN with Aadhaar by the deadline, then the identification card and its relevant facilities will be rendered inactive. This would result in customers not being quoted for specific transactions.
GSTR-1 Filing guidelines: Issuing a notification, the Goods and Service Tax Network (GSTN) had earlier informed that from September, there would be a rule change. The GSTN had said that Rule-59(6) of Central GST Rules which provides for restriction in the filing of GSTR-1, will come into effect from September 1, 2021. As per the new guideline, a registered person won’t be allowed to file the GSTR-1 form if they have not filed the returns in Form GSTR-3B for the preceding tax period.
Cheque clearance: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) had last year issued a notice that it would be rolling out a Positive Pay System which is a mechanism to verify the details of the issuer to prevent bank fraud. The mechanism came into effect on January 1, 2021. Moreover, the central bank has instructed other banks to implement this system when clearing cheques. According to the new rule, customers who are issuing high-value cheques such as Rs 50,000 and above or Rs 5 lakh and above, need to inform the banks prior to issuing the cheque. If this is not done, the cheque will bounce.
