Hi AllThe much awaited Union Budget 2011-12 was presented on 28th February, 2011 even as an exhilarated India woke up after a nail-biting Cricket match at Bangalore against the English on the 27th. The Budget was no match for the excitement that the game created. With most changes likely to come in through the Direct Taxes Code and Goods & Service Tax next year, the Budget did not make any drastic announcements.
This issue is a compilation of the relevant Budget highlights, notifications, circulars etc. including that of the Karnataka Budget highlights. As if these two were not enough, we have thrown in the newly introduced Accounting Standards to your plate too. Don’t complain you are too full……chew at leisure and enjoy !To read the earlier issues and articles
Sincerely, Lex Valorem Team
Union Budget 2011-12
India’s Finance Minister Mr. Pranab Mukherjee presented the Union Budget 2011-12 on 28th February, 2011.Highlights of Direct and Indirect Tax proposals are listed below.
In view of the comprehensive Direct Taxes Code (DTC) to be implemented from 1st April, 2012, few changes have been effected in the Income Tax Act, 1961. The exemption limit has been increased to Rs. 1,80,000 and Rs. 2,50,000 to general assessees and senior citizens respectively. Although the tax rates for the Companies remain untouched the cess charged on profits of domestic companies has been reduced to 5% to encourage domestic industries.
There are no drastic changes in the rates of Indirect Taxes. However rationalisation of the structure has been attempted along with casting the service tax web wider. All these are a run up to the proposed GST which is hopeful of being implemented in FY2012-13.
The State Budget for 2011-2012 was presented by the Chief Minister on 24th February, 2011. Certain legislative changes made in rates of tax related to VAT as well as Stamp Duty payable under the Karnataka Stamps and Registration Act, have been captured as highlights.
These are the Indian Accounting Standards (Ind ASs) finalised by the Council of the ICAI. These are subject to any changes, which may be made by the Government before their notification which is being awaited.
