Compliance Calendar for March 2022

Being the last month for the financial year, March is a significant month from the point of view of the tax compliance and other statutory due dates for ROC Reporting, GST Return Filings, and Income Tax Filing as it is the last month of the fiscal year. Every registered business and professional can benefit from a tax compliance and statutory compliance calendar to ensure that they are prepared for compliance well in advance.

We’ve put together a Compliance Calendar in three parts: a Compliance Calendar for March 2022 GST Due Dates, a Compliance Calendar for March 2022 Income Tax Return due dates, and a ROC Compliance Calendar for the Month of March 2022.

Due Dates are critical for all taxpayers, including businesses in India, to file GST Returns, IT Returns, and mandatory ROC documents by the regulations to avoid paying any interest or late fees.
