Applicability to file ITR-6:
Any business irrespective of its structure registered under the Companies Act 2013 or earlier under the Companies Act, 1956, shall file Income Tax Return via form ITR-6. Nevertheless, those businesses whose revenue is from charitable or religious institutions are not required to file Form ITR-6 (exempt under Section 11).
The taxpayer liable to file Form ITR-6 must obtain an audit report under Section 44-AB. As per section 44-AB, an individual whose revenue, turnover, or gross receipt exceed INR 1 Crore in the preceding financial year must compulsorily get its accounts audited from a Chartered Accountant.
Procedure to fill:
The following is a convenient sequence for filing Form ITR-6:
- Part A (and its sub-sections) – All the Schedules
- Part B (its sub-section) – Verification
This income tax return is a complete online form and has to be furnished electronically by affixing the DSC of the assessee. While filling ITR-6, no document is required to be attached with return. It is advisable for the taxpayers to tally the data with their Tax Credit Statement Form 26 AS about tax deducted, collected, and paid by them.
Who all cannot file?
This form is not filed by the following taxpayers:
- Association of Person
- Body of Individual
- Local authority
- Companies that claim exemption u/s 11
Those companies who have any component of income from the religious or charitable organization can seek exemption under section-11. Thus, in simpler words, an entity not seeking exemption under section-11 shall file ITR-6.
