ITR 6 Form


Tax filing season is an annual ritual for businesses across the globe. In India, the Income Tax Return (ITR) form plays a crucial role in the process, enabling businesses to report their income, deductions, and tax liability accurately. Among the various ITR forms, ITR-6 is specifically designed for companies other than those claiming exemptions under Section 11 of the Income Tax Act. In this blog post, we will explore the ITR-6 form in detail, guiding you through the essentials of filing your business income tax return seamlessly.

Understanding ITR-6 Form:

ITR-6 is an income tax return form applicable to companies, including those that are not eligible for exemptions under Section 11. It covers domestic companies, excluding those classified as limited liability partnerships (LLPs), firms, cooperative societies, and associations. ITR-6 serves as a comprehensive document that captures the financial details of the business, including income, expenses, deductions, and taxes paid.

Which entities are required to file ITR 6?
ITR 6 Form must be filed by all companies that are registered under the Companies Act 2013 or the earlier Companies Act 1956. However, companies that derive their income solely from properties held for religious or charitable purposes are exempted from the obligation to file ITR 6 Form.

I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
