Taxation of derivatives

CA.Sharmila (Accounts Executive) (48 Points)

29 July 2014  

Hi, can we show income from sale of derivatives under the head Profits and Gains from Business or Profession. 

(The derivatives are bought and sold on the same day). As per Section 43(5) this transaction is not speculative.

 Please give points in favour of the above. 


Thanks in Advance
