These both are colocially used for identifying or classifying different kinds of audits. Statutory audit is an audit conducted as per the requirement or madated under any statute. Tax Audit is one of a statutory audit, which is mandated under Income Tax Act, 1956. An audit conducted to meet the requirements of different laws will have different focus areas and the reporting is also different according the requirement of each law.
