General Information for Amending an already filed Company and Trust Return

 

The following points should be noted in case of an amended return:

 

  1. Where the company has submitted a return for a year of assessment and thereafter submits an amended return for the same year of assessment amending the previous return, it shall be deemed to have submitted the return for that year of assessment on the date of submission of the amended return and it shall be liable to pay to the Director-General a penalty for late submission of return representing Rs 2,000 per month or part of the month, up to a maximum of Rs 20,000.

     

  2. Any additional tax on the amended return should be paid together with the appropriate penalties and interest.

     

  3. An amended return shall not be submitted after 3 years from the end of the year of assessment to which the return relates except where it is submitted in respect of undeclared or under declared income.

     

  4. An amended return which results into an additional tax liability does not trigger a tax audit outright.

     

  5. Where the amended return results into a refund of tax, the latter will be processed in the same manner as any corporate tax return with a refund claim.

     

  6. All income tax payers may be subject to tax audit by the MRA.  Thus, a taxpayer submitting an amended return may be selected for tax audit based on the current tax audit selection process, which is mainly risk based, in the same manner as another taxpayer not having submitted an amended return.

 

Please read the "Notes for completion of annual return" before filling in the Company Return.
