  1. Hi Quick Question , does the remuneration of the partners that you have shown in the example get treated as post tax for the company or pre-tax consideration


  2. Sir
    I got a profit of 32k after TDS of 30 percent in LLP
    During my filing of return where should I show this amount and is it necessary

    1. First of all TDS not to be deducted at the time of paying or sharing profit from LLP/partnership firm to its partners because it is exempted from income tax act 10(2A) since LLP has already paid tax on that profit.

      Now you should show it under profit from business/profession

  3. What is the best way I , as a director of an LLP, can draw a sum greater than my salary for a specific personal purpose. How is it explained in the books. For example if i draw a salary of 35k and I require 2lakhs this month. How do a make that available to me legally? What are the ways in which it can be done with the least amount of tax liability.

  4. If your drawings are more than allowable remuneration , then you can treat the same as drawings by you from the firm

  5. On “salary”/”remuneration” from an LLP, would a partner in the LLP be eligible for a standard deduction of 40,000/50,000 (for FY19-20) ??

  6. Sir, if an LLP partner withdraws remuneration of more than Rs. 20 lac in a financial year, would he/she need to register himself for GST (due to business income being more than threshold limit of Rs. 20 lacs)?

  7. Sir, remuneration paid to partner in llp , how it ia shown in the book of accounts….What should be transaction description. Can I take more remuneration in particular year and how then it’s adjusted

  8. Hello sir,

The company invested it in trading (stock market) with a value of 100cr. and they booked a total profit of 100Cr. in a year, How much maximum share in profit can I receive?
