Applicability of Kerala Flood Cess – Notification of date and its deferment

by | May 30, 2019

In reference to our earlier update dated February 28, 2019 on the referred issue, we would like to apprise you that the Kerala Government has decided to defer the levy of Kerala Flood Cess (‘KFC’) to July 1, 2019.

Notably, earlier Kerala Government had issued Notification stating that cess will be effective from June 1,  2019. However, Kerala Legislative Assembly in its meeting held on May 29, 2019 decided to postpone  the implementation on account of various unresolved issues vis-à-vis changes in IT system. Thus, new  effective date for levy of KFC is July 1, 2019.
