Maintaining books requirement for small intra day trading with capital gain on shares for salaried pensioner

for 2020-21 my intra day profit is 264, turn over 10857
stcg profit 17764
Can I claim expenses incurred for intraday trading as well as capital gain (other expenes, eg, share sell dp cost etc)
Am I required to maintain books and get them audited.
What should I do if I don’t want to neither maintain books nor get them audited

@AkashJhaveri @Divya_Singhvi @Laxmi_Navlani @Saad_C @Kaushal_Soni can you help with this?

Hi @sutharbkn

Intraday Trading has to be reported as Business Income and thus all the expenses can be claimed against business income.

No expense except Brokerage can be claimed in case of Capital Gains since it is not reported as Business Income.

No Tax Audit is required but preparing the books and filing ITR 3 is required as per the income situation mentioned.

Hope this helps!
