If the annual turnover of a registered taxpayer is more than Rs. 2 crores in a financial year , he is required to get his accounts audited by a Chartered Accountant or Cost Accountant every year.

A financial year covers the 12-month period beginning from April of a calendar year to March of the next calendar year.

Special Note: For the purpose of finding out the turnover limit for Financial Year 2017-18, it includes the first quarter of 2017-2018 i.e. 1st April 2017 to 30th June 2017, before GST was implemented.

Rs.2 crore Turnover limit for GST Audit u/s 35(5) of the CGST Act 2017, will be reckoned from JULY 2017 to MARCH 2018 and not from April 2017 to March 2018.

Also in the Guidelines of GSTR-9C point no.5A, mentions the below wordings:

The Turnover as the per the Audited Annual financial statement shall be declared here - Table 5A. So the turnover should include the pre GST turnover for applicability of GST Audit. Any section/law cannot supercede the press release. 




CBIC: Clarification regarding Annual Returns and Reconciliation Statement, for taking necessary action.

Point (i): Turnover for eligibility of filing of reconciliation statement: It may be noted that the aggregate turnover i.e. the turnover of all the registrations having the same Permanent Account Number is to be used for determining the requirement of filing of reconciliation statement. Therefore, if there are two registrations in two different States on the same PAN, say State A (with turnover of Rs. 1.2 Crore) and State B (with turnover of Rs. 1 Crore) they are both required to file reconciliation statements individually for their registrations since their aggregate turnover is greater than Rs. 2 Crore. The aggregate turnover for this purpose shall be reckoned for the period July, 2017 to March, 2018
