  • ii. Small Taxpayers: Taxpayers whose aggregate annual turnover in the preceding financial year is upto Rs.1.5 crore.

New System of Return Filing


  • i. Large Taxpayers: Taxpayers whose aggregate annual turnover in the preceding financial year is above Rs.5 crore.

  • ii. Small Taxpayers: Taxpayers whose aggregate annual turnover in the preceding financial year is upto Rs.5 crore.



2. Returns under the System
