December 31, 2021

Why pay a late fee or penalty?

Why not complete the transactional entries task rapidly into Tally and pay the tax before the deadline?

Hello, to all the Accountant's CA’s, company secretaries, and all taxpayers, this one's for you.

Stay tuned till the end,

Because 

In this blog, we will discuss how you can accelerate your process of Income Tax Return filing so that you can be saved from paying the additional fees and penalties and don’t have to deal with enormous work at a time.

Here we are going to tell you the instant solutions to your problems that will save you a huge amount of time in the chaos of the Income Tax filing deadline.

But before that, let’s see,

What challenges do CA’s and accountants face during the last week of ITR filing?

1. Hard to decode the files that come in various formats:

At the last moment, entering data into Tally, especially from different file formats, is like a headache for the accountants and CA’s as they have to deal with humongous data of many companies at one time. To compute the taxable income, they have to spend a lot of time on Tally software to add and deduct the amount which does not come under taxable income.

Every company and business has different software for the data collections, which has a unique format and categories. Accountants and CA’s have to first study the file and understand how the data is articulated in it, and then enter it into Tally software manually. This practice is frustrating and highly time-consuming.

2. Receives documents and files at the end moment:

It is a common thing when it comes to ITR filing. Most companies, businesses, and salaried people awake at the end moment and contact their accountant to file their IT returns. 

Since a lot of documents and transactional details are required for ITR such as bank statements, passbook, salary sleep, and documents like form-16, form 26AS, form 16A, accountants and CA have to work hard unnecessarily and enter all the data into Tally to compute the taxable income for all that account.

In such a scenario, the chance of error will get higher, and eventually, it leads to significant financial loss, and businesses and companies have to pay penalties as well.

3. Websites doesn't work at that time:

As there is one website of the Income Tax department of India that is being used all across the country, websites crash due to the heavy load of users. As a result, taxpayers, accountants, and CA have to wait for the website to reopen, and that is a waste of their valuable time. Entering bank statement entries to Tally is already a time-consuming task, and such problems make the situation even worse.
Aren't these situations dreadful, especially at the time of the Income Tax return filing deadline?

These are some common issues that taxpayers have to go through, but what consumes their most time is bank statement entries into Tally.

Yes, it becomes such a difficult task for an accountant to enter a vast number of entries into Tally to calculate the Taxable income for their client. And, since it all comes at the end of the moment, they have to deal with many problems that make them frustrated and stressed out.

Let’s see why this bank statement entry is a significant issue for accountants and CA’s and what is that instant solution that we are talking about

The first and foremost thing in the Income Tax return filing process is to collect all the necessary files and enter all the transactional entries into Tally manually. Entries like purchase, sales, receipt, payment, contra, journal are the basic options for data entry into Tally.

However, all entries are done manually by accountants and CA’s, so there is a high chance of error that can lead to major consequences.

Also, as mentioned earlier, the files and documents that accountants receive come in various forms like hard copies and soft copies that are sometimes hard to read, and eventually, the entries can go wrong into tally too. Apart from that, partial entries and duplicate entries are common errors that occur in manual data entry tasks.

For example,

If the buyers have made the partial payment through both online and cash, and if the accountant misses one entry into the accounting book, the same mistakes go into Tally as well. As a result, the number of sales and purchases will differ, and the accountant has to spend extra time identifying the mistake.

Now, let’s discuss the solutions that eliminate all your problems that speed up your ITR filing process.
