Steps to do tax audit, i.e. under the Income Tax Act, 1961 :

  1. Basic vouching like normal statutory audit, in case you aren't the auditor and the other audit is not that reliable or no other audit is applicable for the client.
  2. Reconciling the turnover with indirect tax returns such as GST/VAT/Service Tax.
  3. Compliance with TDS provisions, and disallowing interest for late payment/deduction and late fees for TDS returns filed late. Check TDS Returns and payment challans.
  4. Disallowing the expenses entirely or 30% of them, if tax has not been deducted.
  5. Checking the workings for weighted deductions claimed, such as 10AA or Section 35 or Section 80-IA and the like, whether they are in order and there is no excess claim.
  6. Disallowing penalty or late fees paid under any other law, advertisement or club expenditure, any income tax paid taken on debit side of P&L and other specific disallowances.
  7. Disallowing expenditure in relation to which the income is exempt under Section 14.
  8. Verifying whether ICDS have been followed and the requisite adjustments for ensuring compliance.
  9. Whether brought forward losses have been properly disclosed, amount set-off in current year and balance carried forward.
  10. If MAT/AMT is applicable, appropriate disclosures made and checking the workings and also for MAT/AMT credit carried forward.
  11. Ensure that CSR expenditure is not taken as deduction,unless specifically allowed under any other section.
  12. Disclosure relating to any refunds of indirect tax received, as also confirmed demand in relation to any direct/indirect tax and the judicial forum/appellate authority where the appeal is pending.
  13. In case of firms, whether remuneration is within permissible limits, worked out as per the provisions of Income Tax Act.
  14. Checking workings for depreciation, additional depreciation,whether they are accurate, as also workings for deferred tax assets/liability.
