According to this, a sum equal to 71⁄2% of the aggregate of the following amounts must be deemed to be the profits and gains of the business of shipping chargeable to tax under the

head ‘profits and gains of business or profession’.

(ii) The amount paid or payable, whether within India or outside, to the assessee or to any person on his behalf on account of the carriage of passengers, livestock, mail or goods shipped at any port in India.

(iii) The amount received or deemed to be received in India by the assessee himself or by any other person on behalf of or on account of the carriage of passengers, livestock, mail or goods shipped at any port outside India.

Income tax act 1961 Section 44B

The total of the above two amounts must be ascertained and 71⁄2% thereof would be calculated and taken as the income from the business chargeable to tax in India. These provisions for computation of the income from the shipping business in case of non-residents would apply notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the provisions of sections 28 to 43A of the Income-tax Act, 1961. In other words, the income would be computed on this basis without applying the various provisions contained in sections 28 to 43A. Consequential provisions are also seen in section 172.

For the purposes of sub-section (2), receipts forming the basis of estimates on non resident shipping lines will include demurrage and handling charges.
