Presumptive taxation scheme?

A person engaged in business or profession is required to maintain regular books of account and further, he has to get his accounts audited.

  1. Presumptive taxation scheme of section 44AD: This scheme applies to all persons engaged in business, whose receipts from turnover is less than Rs 2 crore. Those opting for this scheme can declare their income at the rate of 6% or 8%, and do not have to maintain account books.

  2. Presumptive taxation scheme of section 44ADA: The scheme under this section applies to professionals engaged in professions like legal, medical, engineering, etc. Those opting for this scheme have to declare their income at 50% of the total receipts.

  3. Presumptive taxation scheme of section 44AE: The scheme under this section applies to persons engaged in the business of plying, hiring, or leasing of goods carriages, and who do not own more than 10 vehicles at any time during the year. Those opting for this scheme can declare their income at Rs.7, 500 per vehicle per month.
