Let us discuss the above scenario with the help of Cases given below:

Case 1:

Mr. X has total turnover of Rs. 3.8 Crore during the relevant previous year i.e., Financial Year 2020-21, then for the current FY 2021-22 Mr. X shall be eligible for Quarterly Return filing with Monthly Payment of taxes scheme.

Now in current Financial Year 2021-22, till 21 September 2021 i.e. up to 2nd quarter total turnover of Mr. X was Rs. 6.5 Crore. So, from October 2021, Mr. X will not be eligible for Quarterly Return filing with Monthly Payment of taxes scheme.

Case 2:

In the above Case, if the turnover was Rs. 6.5 Crore in the FY 2021-22 up to July 2021, then Quarterly Return filing with Monthly Payment of taxes (QRMP) scheme shall be available for the remaining 2 months i.e., August and September 2021 and it will not be continued further from 3rd quarter i.e., from October 2021 onwards.
