    Hi Ishita,

    In the article you have mentioned that in case of LLP carrying on business, tax audit is applicable if its turnover exceed INR 2 Crores. However, for an LLP carrying on business tax audit is applicable if its Turnover exceeds INR 1 crore (& not 2 Crores).

  2. Samkit says:

    Hi Ishitha,

    You have mentioned that every LLP whose turnover exceeds INR 2 Cr. in case of a business should get their books of account tax audited. However, if the LLP is carrying out business, then the limit is not INR 2 Cr., the limit is actually INR 1Cr.
