    It is taking previous year turnover into consideration ie 18-19.We are a newly registered firm which is yet to commence business.So investment will be nil in that case (since they are considering only previous year values

  2. Pawan says:

    Dear Sir, The auto populated turnover and WDV data are completely wrong. What should I do as there is no option of editing the same. Ex. in turnover it is only picking up the Direct Income Total and not the income from other sources value which is a significant amount in my case. How to proceed?
