Mere CA certificate do not establish bonafide of Assessees claim

October 9, 2013 2653 Views 0 comment Print

Merely because the assessee complies with the statutory procedural requirement of filing the prescribed form and certificate of the Chartered Accountant, cannot absolve the assessee of its liability if the act or attempt in claiming the deduction was not bonafide.

No penalty for disallowance U/s. 40(a)(i) if TDS deducted next year

June 3, 2013 2576 Views 0 comment Print

Merely because a claim (per the return of income) is a legal claim, or has a legal aspect to it – which would be in each case – the same by itself cannot be a cause for non levy of penalty in every case, as where there is no valid basis for the same (i.e., the legal claim).

No penalty for mere change in head of income

Having heard the submissions of both the sides and on due consideration of the facts of the case, we are of the considered opinion that the transaction in respect of the share trading was duly disclosed at the time of filing of the return. Some of the income was shown as long-tern capital gain and part of the income was also shown as speculative business in shares/scripts trading.

Urgency to ensure honouring of cheque constitute a reasonable cause u/s. 273B

May 5, 2013 2244 Views 0 comment Print

Director of assessee company Mr. Varun Sarup Agarwal issued a cheque on 1.2.2007 on behalf of the assessee company for payment of rent and assessee company opened its account after issuance of this cheque. The amount of Rs. 2 lakh was deposited in the bank account of Mr. Varun Sarup Agarwal with a bona fide intention to prevent dishonoring of the cheque issued to the landlord of the assessee company and the remaining amount was returned back to the assessee company’s bank account. In the facts and circumstances of the case, it is doubtful whether the amount received by director with an intention to deposit it to the bank account with a bona fide belief that this would save the prestige of the company can be characterized as a loan or a deposit within the meaning of Section 269T of the Act. Although Section 269T of the Act does not expressly confer any exemption from transaction between connected parties or sister concern but a perusal of the decided cases on this point shows that there is a cleavage of judicial opinion.

In yet another case of Shri Ramchandra D Keluskar in ITA No.668/PN/10, the Pune Bench of this Tribunal found that when there are no books of account, the question of its audit does not arise.

In the present case, the AO had levied penalty under s. 271(1)(c) of the Act, for furnishing inaccurate particulars of income. It is not under dispute that the assessee had claimed wrong depreciation on account of additions made in the machinery and factory building accounts, which has been surrendered by the assessee to buy peace of mind. The explanation had been submitted during the assessment proceedings as well as in the penalty proceedings.

Penalty not justified on income, taxability of which was debatable

We are of the view that the Commissioner of Income Tax (Appeals) as also the Tribunal have approached the issue correctly. The question whether the sale of the stock options would result in long term capital gains or short term gains was not very clear at the time when the respondent/ assessee filed his return for the assessment year 2002-03.
