Hi @Jack_R

Tax Audit is applicable to persons having “Income from Business & Profession”.

Tax Audit under Sec 44AB(a) is applicable if the turnover of the business exceeds ₹ 2 crores irrespective of the profit or loss under the regular taxation scheme.

Moreover, salary income shall be taxed separately.

Both incomes shall be taxed at the slab rate depending upon the regime chosen.
