Computation of turnover w.r.t sec. 44ab



Will the O/Put tax billed and recovered from customer will form part of turnover for calculation of 100 Lakhs w.r.t Sec. 44ab.

Let suppose in a case where basic sales amount to 90 Lakhs and it totals to 110Lakhs after adding VAT will the assessee be rquired to get audited u/s 44ab??

Sales Tax, VAT or excise duties collected should not be taken into account for turnover if they are credited seperately to sales tax, VAT or excise duty account.

But sir, as guidance note is not mandaory on the entity.

And, sec 145 evidently states that Purchase and sale of goods be valued inclusive of tax.

So, shouldn't there be a close refrence drawn from the act itself rather than guidance note.

Vat, Service tax, excise duty, custom duty etc. are to be form part of turnover. For example, if service tax is directly credited under current liabilities then you have to add it to your sales amount. If you have routed it through profit and loss account then it will already be included in sales.

All indirect taxes will form part of sales and if including taxes sales will be above from rs 100 lakhs then it will be liable for tax audit u/s 44 ab

Dear aamir though I second your views.

But, format of ITR can't be used for interpretation of law.

ITR forms are designed for administrative convenience and increased clearity secondly, If we go by your logic in that case why do we add Indirect taxes for sec. 44ad.

So in my opinion you might be correct but this can't be an explanation to it.

Chandan & Mohit sir though I am getting this very answer from most of the CAs but none of them is substantiating this view with any legal base.

So, could you please tell me the legal basis for your opinions plz.
