Section 44AD (4) introduced from AY 2017-18.

What if in any subsequent AY year after getting audited, assessee failed to get accounts audited. i.e. if in AY 2018-19 non-audited and filed under 44AD, subsequent to that in AY 2019-20 Audited in view to GTO and again in AY 2020-21 it got unaudited. Whether Assessee can get accounts audited for AY 2021-22 ignoring previous omission of non-audit.

Filed Under AUDIT

The assessee opted out from presumptive taxation under section 44AD in AY 2019-21 and audited his books of accounts. He cannot opt for presumptive taxation for 5 subsequent assessment years. So his books of accounts shall be audited. If not audited, penalty under section 271B will be attracted. It is irrelevant that books of accounts for AY 2020-21 not get audited while considering the audit of books of accounts for AY 2021-22.
