–          Gross Total

From the details mentioned above it can be judge how much department is taking care of OMS transactions after C form Scam.

On the basis of details above Chartered community should think about increasing fees of VAT audit.

Final Words-

In Short the department have improve the image by

–          Removing the ambiguities from the audit report

–          Drafting a good looking format (as far as of earlier format)

–          Asking specific information what they expect in audit report

–          Collecting details in Annexure J which will going to help us in case of refunds, or so called speedy refunds.

But on other hand department is looking very cautious about OMS transactions particularly OMS purchases and about the C forms. Annexure J (5) & (6) added, the trouble with the auditors now is only that, the dependency for information of these annexure will increase and VAT audit will prove the much time consuming process compare to the fees going to RECEIVED. ??? That’s why I had mentioned that we as community should think to increase the fees.
