Ans. The term ‘commencement of audit’ is important because audit has to be completed within a given time frame in reference to this date of commencement. Commencement of audit means the later of the following:

  • (a) the date on which the records/accounts called for by the audit authorities are made available to them, or
  • (b) the actual institution of audit at the place of business of the taxpayer.
