In this paper we study the incompressible limit of the compressible inertial Qian-Sheng model for liquid crystal flow. We first derive the uniform energy estimates on the Mach number $ \epsilon $ for both the compressible system and its differential system with respect to time under uniformly in $ \epsilon $ small initial data. Then, based on these uniform estimates, we pass to the limit in the compressible system as $ \epsilon \rightarrow 0 $, so that we establish the global classical solution of the incompressible system by compactness arguments. We emphasize that, on global in time existence of the incompressible inertial Qian-Sheng model under small size of initial data, the range of our assumptions on the coefficients are significantly enlarged, comparing to the results of De Anna and Zarnescu's work [6]. Moreover, we also obtain the convergence rates associated with $ L^2 $-norm with well-prepared initial data.
