Presumptive Income & its Taxation – under section 44AD
When you are running a small business, you may not have enough resources to maintain proper accounting information and calculate your profit or loss. This makes it difficult to keep track of your income from such a business and find out how much tax you need to pay.

With this in mind the Income Tax Department has laid out some simple provisions where your income is assumed based on the gross receipts of your business. This method is called the presumptive method, where tax is paid on an estimated basis.
