Accounting is the systematic process of recording, analysing, and interpreting the financial transactions. It is the responsibility of every business – whether large or small to furnish their accounting records to the Income Tax Department. Generally, startups neglect these issues and, after a few years, they are forced to deal with them, plus interest. It's always a good idea to keep track of your finances and provide information to government organisations to avoid difficulties like raids and fines. Companies are required to update the annual returns regularly.
The documents required will vary depending on the service you require. Our professionals will convey the same to you based on your requirements.
