    Last date to apply for PAN for non-individuals

    Budget 2018 amended Section 139A of the Income Tax Act making PAN mandatory for non-individuals such as Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs), Body of Individuals (BoI) and so on conducting transactions of Rs 2.5 lakh or above in a financial year. However, the amendment did not notify the last date to apply for a PAN in order to avoid penalty.

    In order to rectify it, the tax department issued a notification to notify the last date such non-individuals must apply for PAN. The last date to apply for PAN in such cases is May 31 of the next financial year. Therefore, for transactions conducted in FY 2018-19, the last date to apply for PAN will be May 31, 2019.

    Changes in PAN card application form

       The application form to apply for PAN card has undergone changes twice this year. The first change was to include the option of transgender in the forms. PAN card application forms, i.e., Forms 49A and 49AA have been amended to include an option for transgender along with 'male' and 'female'. In addition to that, no supporting documents would be required for proof of gender.

    Another major change in the forms is doing away with the mandatory requirement of mentioning father's name. An applicant is not mandatorily required to quote his/her father's name if the mother of the applicant is a single parent. This rule came into effect from December 5, 2018.

    Father's name not mandatory for PAN application

       If you are going to apply for PAN on or after December 5, 2018, then you will not be required to mandatorily quote your father's name in the application form. This rule will be applicable if the mother of the applicant is a single parent. The application form will now give the applicant an option as to whether the mother is a single parent and the applicant wishes to furnish the name of only his mother.

    The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has amended the income tax rules relating to it through a notification dated November 18.

    Standard deduction replaces medical reimbursement and transport allowance

     Another major tax change that was announced in the Budget this year is the introduction of standard deduction in lieu of medical reimbursement and transport allowance. The latter two components can be easily seen in our salary slips in the previous FYs.

    However, starting from FY 2018-19, they will no longer be mentioned in the salary slips because of change in tax laws. The standard deduction of Rs 40,000 introduced in lieu of these two items can be claimed by taxpayers from their salary income at the time of filing ITR.

    The proposed model of GST and the rate

    A dual GST system is planned to be implemented in India as proposed by the Empowered Committee under which the GST will be divided into two parts:

    • State Goods and Services Tax (SGST)
    • Central Goods and Services Tax (CGST)

    Both SGST and CGST will be levied on the taxable value of a transaction. All goods and services, leaving aside a few, will be brought into the GST and there will be no difference between goods and services. The GST system will combine Central excise duty, additional excise duty, services tax, State VAT entertainment tax etc. under one banner.
