SFT includes reporting of cash receipts exceeding Rs 2 lakh for sale of goods/services by reportable persons that includes banks, companies issuing shares/bonds/debentures/ mutual fund, registrar/sub-registrar of property or any other person liable for audit under section 44AB of the Income Tax Act.

 The Income Tax Department's clarification has made it clear that it is not compulsory to file Form 61A for receipts below Rs 2 lakh cash for the sale of goods and services.
 
 "Post Income Tax Department's clarification, the confusion in the minds of assesses whether it was compulsory to file Form 61A even in case of non-reportable transactions now stands addressed," Amit Jindal, Director, Felix Advisory, said.
 
 "It has now been clarified that there is no need to file form 61A where there is no reportable transaction and thereby, avoiding any future queries from tax department regarding non-disclosure/ non filing," he said.
