Is audit necessary in this case?

Hi, consider a person 'X'. 'X' suffered loss of Rs. 6.7 lacs due to intraday and delivery based trading in F.Y 14-15. He got his activities audited by a C.A and submitted his return. In F.Y 15-16, he only did trading (intraday and delivery) for a week as he ran out of money by 8 th April, 2015. He received Rs. 3,60,000 as his PF from which he bought shares but held them up to end of F.Y 15-16. This P.F amount will be taxable as he left his job before 5 years. 'X' had no other income in this F.Y as he was unemployed. My question is whether 'X' is liable to get an audit in F.Y 15-16 too because he did trading for a week. The turnover of this trading was 1.6 lacs and gain made was Rs 23. Thanks.

Hi,
As per Sec 44AD, if assesee claims profit lesser than 8% of turnover, then he is liable to 44AB audit if and only if his income exceeds basic exemption limit. 
So in Financial year 15-16, as the income is less the exemption limit of Rs 250000, there is no need of tax audit, he can file the return without getting audit done,

in case PF amount is withdrawn before completion of 5 years, it is not taxable if unemployment is due to the following reason:
If the employee has not rendered continuous service of five years, but the service is terminated by reason of the employee’s ill health or discontinuance of the employer’s business or reasons beyond the control of the employee, the amount will be tax-exempt.

Dear Sir,

I dont know whether you are aware about the calculation of turnover in case of intra day trading or not. IT is the absolute sum total of gain and loss made during the year.

If you dont want to go for an audit, you have an option to show presumptive profit of 8% of turnover and pay tax on the same. In that case you are not required to go for an audit.

We can help you in this process and filing your return of income. Should you need our services, please feel free to reach me at caabhishekdugar@gmail.com.

Ya,
as quantum of activity is not big, he can show these trading under capital gain. 
no need of tax audit. or 8% requirement under section 44AD.

Dear Sir,

Considering PF amount is taxable, you have two choices:

1. Get his accounts audited and pay tax on the profit and loss; or
2. Pay 8% tax on INR 1899.

I recommend you to go for second option.

Thanks and Regards

because of the following reasons  income is not liable for tax audit.
1) Gross turnover is not exceeding Rs1 cr
2) there is no loss in trading and taxable income is not exceeding taxable limit.
3) as transactions of trading is not of huge amount , you can take income from capital gain.
hope i am clear.

only income from trading business is to be considered for audit.
income from PF falls under income from other sources.
intraday trading is also income from other sources as speculative income
income from other tradings is income under capital gain. if he is still holding shares till the end of the financial year. there is no income.
if he had resigned due to health issue or some unavoidable reason then the PF amount is exempt from tax.otherwise it is taxable

Hello Sir,

Firstly you are not liable for Tax Audit as it is not your Business Income. The shares can be shown as Investment as No Tax needs to be paid.

All you should do is pay Tax on the PF Amount and Tax on the amount of Gains made during the year.

Do not show it as Stock but in turn show it as Investment (The stock purchased during the year i.e 2015-16).

Trust this clarifies your query. 

Feel free to call back/ get back in case of further clarifications. 

Thanking You.
