Section 44AD relating to presumptive taxation applies only to businesses run by residents Individual, HUF and Firms excluding LLP. Tax on presumptive basis should be extended to all assessees, including a LLP. Only section 44AD excludes LLP, for which there appears to be no cogent reason. Otherwise under the Act, a LLP and a Firm are treated at par.
The benefit of section 44AD should also be made available to LLP.
