Audit under section 44AB is required when turnover exceeds Rs. 1 crore. But in case of speculation business, shares trading and futures/options, turnover is determined in the following manner.

1) Speculation Business – The aggregate of both positive and negative differences is to be considered as the turnover.

2) Intra day trading of shares –  The aggregate of both positive and negative differences is to be considered as the turnover.

3) Delivery based trading of shares – Sale value or purchase value whichever is high is considered as turnover.
