1. Not a speculative business. Any derivative transactins on futures and options through an authorised is not a speculative transactions. 2. As the turnover exceeds 2 crores you cant opt for presumptive tax. Even if you are allowed to use presumptive the client find it hard to explain the source of income for the excess of 6%. 3. Also as the IT Department has access over stock market transactions it can easily arrive at the profit and ask you to pay tax on actual profit. Presumptive is allowed only if books are not kept or the actual profit is less than the presumptive profit. Hence you cannot opt for presumptive
