You know maintaining books of accounts is a tedious and a little complex task at least for a small business. It dilutes the focus of a small business person. Instead of focussing on his (her) business, he gets busy in tax chores.


Tax authorities understand it. And thus, in the interest of small businessman and nation they have devised a special scheme "Presumptive taxation scheme."


Presumptive taxation scheme is a scheme which permits small taxpayers to not maintain the regular books of accounts.
