Zerodha allows you to download your Profit and Loss Report online. It is the same as a Tax P&L report, and it is an essential document to calculate taxes on trading income. Traders have a “Trading Statement” that consists of a list of transactions undertaken by the person in various segments during a specific period. It consists of details such as:
- Script Name
- Purchase price
- Sale price
- Quantity, etc.
These details then help determine the Tax liability.

Tax Audit is required when the turnover of a taxpayer exceeds Rs. 1 cr in a particular Financial year. It is also applicable if the net profit from such transactions is less than 6% / 8% of the turnover. Additionally, a tax Audit report can only be filed by a CA.
No. Contract Turnover is the sum of the purchase value and sales value. It is not applicable for income tax purposes. Trading Turnover or Business Turnover is the absolute profit i.e. sum of positive and negative differences. This turnover is to determine the applicability of the tax audit and the applicable ITR form. Therefore, Trading Turnover is different from Contract Turnover.
