All you need to know about audit trail (India)

Attention all business owners! Starting April 1, 2023, it's mandatory for your accounting software to maintain an audit trail of every action your business carries out. This means the software needs to track everything you do, keep a log of any changes made to your accounts, and prevent you from disabling the feature.

Are you audit trail ready yet? Don't worry!

As always, Zoho Books has your back! Check out the recording of our recent webinar with CA Pritam Mahure to learn how Zoho Books can help you comply.
