In this article author has shared the matter for qualification regarding clause 44 of the Tax audit

In this clause heading of the table which starts with the words "Breakup of total expenditure" and hence the total expenditure including purchases as per the above format may be given. It could also be noted that if the department wanted Head-wise bifurcation, “Nature of Expenditure” would have been given in the utility or the department would have given the space to provide for the same. Hence, head-wise / nature wise expenditure details is not envisaged in this clause.

Disclosure in Tax Audit Clause 44

(a) If assesssee provide every details required under clause 44 of Tax Audit then we should thoroughly check and verify the details. The Tax Auditor should verify the details on a test check basis and retain the same as part of his working papers.

(b) If the assessee is not in a position to give the details as required in clause 44, an appropriate disclosure/disclaimer may be made by the auditor in Form 3CA/3CB.

As informed by the assessee, the information required under Clause No. 44 of Form 3CD has not been maintained in absence of any disclosure requirement thereof under the Goods and Service Tax Act. Further the standard accounting software used by Assessee is not configured to generate reports as required under this clause in absence of any prevailing statutory requirement. Therefore, it is not possible to determine the break-up of total expenditure of entities registered or not registered under the GST. In view of the above, we are unable to verify and report the desired information in this clause.
