As per the existing provisions of the Income-tax Act, the report of audit under section 44AB is required to be furnished by 30th September of the assessment year. Section 139 was amended vide Finance Act 2011 to extend the due date of furnishing of return by the corporate assessees, who have undertaken international transactions, from 30th September to 30th November of the assessment year.

In order to align the due date for furnishing tax audit report under section 44AB of the Act and due date specified for furnishing of return under section 139 of the Act, it is proposed to provide that the due date for furnishing tax audit report under section 44AB would be the same as due date specified for furnishing of return under section 139.

This amendment will take effect retrospectively from 1st April, 2012 and will, accordingly, apply in relation to the assessment year 2012-13 and subsequent assessment years.
