  1. Sir, I think there is some mistake in example third given by you….. It should be 90% of first 3,00,000 and 60% of remaining 9 Lacs

  2. 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

    vish

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. CA Satish Mehta on

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

  6. 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) ??

  7. 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)?
