Hello,

 

A proprietor's Maharashtra VAT return was filed on 6 monthly basis until the last year. This year the Sales Tax Department changed it to Quarterly. However, since the proprietor was unaware of the same, he did not file any return until Mid October. Now when he tries to file his 6 monthly return, he gets an error that the frequency is not correct. Now what is the remedy? Can he file 2 quarter returns now?
