Said the statement, “Authorised dealers are advised to accept such forms till August 15, 2021 for the purpose of foreign remittances. A facility will be provided on the new e-filing portal to upload these forms at a later date for the purpose of generation of the Document Identification Number (DIN)”.
According to provisions of the Income Tax Act, 1961, Form 15CA and 15CB are to be filed electronically. Taxpayers upload the Form 15CA along with the chartered accountant certificate in Form 15CB, wherever applicable, on the e-filing portal, before submitting the copy to the authorised dealer for any foreign remittances.
Taxpayers over the country have been facing problems while submitting their returns as well as uploading relevant documents because of the new e-filing portal was launched on June 7, 2021. So the Ministry Of Finance has taken the issue to solve the problem with infosys(company which is managing the portal) to rectify it as soon as possible.
