Our company did not submit the profit tax to the tax department in the stipulated time due to the tax return has to be signed by the director and he was in a trip during the month of October 2017.

Is the above sentence natural?

Our company didn't pay its 2017 corporate taxes on time because the tax return has to be signed by the director, and he was on a trip in October.

It wasn't. Now it is.

But that's not a good reason to be late paying taxes! You'll have to come up with a better excuse than that.
