Activities are covered by section 44AE.
A person practising a certain profession as defined by section 44AA.
A person who makes money through commission or brokerage.
Any individual conducting agency business.
By the financial amendment made in 2017, if a business's revenue during the previous year or before the deadline under section 139(1) was paid by account payee check, draught, or electronic funds transfer (ECS), 6% of those revenues will be declared as profit, or the assessee may declare more profit.
