Section 44AB of the Act:Tax Audit

Every person carrying on business is required to get his accounts audited, if his total sales, turnover or gross receipts, in business exceed or exceeds one crore rupees in any previous year.

Section 44AB of the Act:Tax Audit Amendments

Section 44AB of the Act:-

        Under section 44AB of the Act, every person carrying on business is required to get his accounts audited, if his total sales, turnover or gross receipts, in business exceed or exceeds Rs.1 Crore in any previous year. In case of a person carrying on profession he is required to get his accounts audited, if his gross receipt in profession exceeds, Rs.50 Lakhs in any previous year.

Amendment:-

       In order to reduce compliance burden on small and medium enterprises, it is proposed to increase the threshold limit for a person carrying on business from Rs.1 Crore to Rs.5 Crores in cases where,- 
  • aggregate of all receipts in cash during the previous year does not exceed 5% of such receipt; and 
  • aggregate of all payments in cash during the previous year does not exceed 5% of such payment.
Remember that 'AND' word is used above,so both conditions have to be satisfied.
      Further, to enable pre-filling of returns in case of persons having income from business or profession, it is required that the tax audit report may be furnished by the said assessees at least 1 month prior to the due date of filing of return of income. This requires amendments in all the sections of the Act which mandates filing of audit report along with the return of income or by the due date of filing of return of income. Thus, provisions of section 10, section 10A, section 12A, section 32AB, section 33AB, section 33ABA, section 35D, section 35E, section 44AB, section 44DA, section 50B, section 80-IA, section  80-IB, section 80JJAA, section 92F, section 115JB, section 115JC and section 115VW of the Act are proposed to be amended accordingly.
         Further, the due date for filing return of income under sub-section (1) of section 139 is proposed to be amended by:- 

(A)  providing 31st October of the assessment year (as against 30th September) as the due date for an assessee referred to in clause (a) of Explanation 2 of sub-section (1) of Section 139 of the Act; 

(B)  removing the distinction between a working and a non-working partner of a firm with respect to the due date as mentioned in sub-clause (iii) of clause (a) of Explanation 2 of sub-section (1) of Section 139 of the Act. 
         These amendments will take effect from 1st April, 2020 and will, accordingly, apply in relation to the assessment year 2020-21 and subsequent assessment years.
  
          The amendment relating to extending threshold for getting books of accounts audited will have consequential effect on TDS/TCS provisions contained in sections 194A, 194C, 194H, 194I, 194J and 206C as these provisions fasten liability of TDS/TCS on certain categories of person, if the gross receipt or turnover from the business or profession carried on by them exceed the monetary limit specified in clause (a) or clause (b) of section 44AB.
       Therefore, it is proposed to amend these sections so that reference to the monetary limit specified in clause (a) or clause (b) of section 44AB of the Act is substituted with rupees one crore in case of the business or rupees fifty lakh in case of the profession, as the case may be.
        These amendments will take effect from 1st April, 2020.
