One of the suggestion given by Advocate community for Budget 2020 is that GST Audit and Tax Audit should be abolished. As per the suggestion, India is a digital economy, where Tax Audits and GST Audits cast shadow on our digital economy. Further as per the argument, there are sufficient safeguards by way of penal provisions provided in tax regime. Therefore, there is no necessity to subject the taxpayers to GST Audits. They also belive, that when entire information about the business done by the taxpayers is readily available to all the officers in the tax administration department, then there is no need of Audit.

“Hon’ble Prime minister, Sir, it will be good for the GST tax administration if GST Audit is removed from the statute book. This is particularly so when GST Audit even for 2017-18 has still not been done and there are notifications extending the dates for such audits or exempting certain class of taxpayers. The information asked for in the GST Audit Form is readily available to the GST department through various returns filed by the taxpayers. It is impossible for any professionals to give a certificate that all the GST rules have been followed by the taxpayers. GST Audit is done. based on books and other documents that are given by the taxpayers to the accountants. With thousands of documents, legal interpretation of HSN classification, nature of supply, point & time of supply, exemptions, interpretation of tax rates – it is virtually not possible to give a certificate that all GST laws have been complied with.”

    Advocate community is making themselves a laughing stock , by giving this funny suggestion … First of all the Audit is only on the taxpayers with Goods and service income above Rs 2 crores ( may be high time to increase it above 5 Crores) ….Are our advocates aware that the Audit was there in VAT Regime too that for turnovers above 60 Lakshs in some state … ? Advocates profession should concentrate more on their professional conduct as we feel it is getting degraded year by year ( just see how advocates behaved in the recent nirbaya case…Just see how advocates behaved in kerala court when they abused even the magistrate, … just introspect whether you do correct when you guys collude each other extending and postponing hearings to the utter grief of cleitns) ….I think advocates can ask for their share of Audit if they have the professional competence , but not advocate doing away with Audit as many tax payers under GST still dont report proper turnover

    its not proper to say that all compliance can not be checked…..its a apoint of assurance and opinion.in view of CA & CMA..
    not insurance.
    but in point of ADVOCATES may be true that all compliance checking is impossible.
