2019 (4) TMI 557 - AT - Income Tax
Addition u/s 68 - fresh issue of share capital and share premium - Case selected for scrutiny under section 143(3) - year of assessment - HELD THAT:- Section 68 of the Act provides that if any sum found credited in the year in respect of which the assessee fails to explain the nature and source shall be assessed as its undisclosed income. In the facts of the present case, both the nature & source of the share application received was fully explained by the assessee. We note that the share application money and share premium money which were received by the assessee company from the two share applicant companies viz: M/s. Prism Vintrade Private Limited, and M/s. Gannet-Vintrade Private Limited, during the period December, 2012 to March, 2013 had already been suffered disallowance under section 68 of the Act. As these two share applicant companies invested the same money in the assessee company, therefore, no further disallowance is warranted in the hands of the assessee company. Once taxed income cannot be taxed again.
In the case of third company, M/s Haven Vincom Pvt. Ltd the identity, creditworthiness and genuineness have been proved beyond doubt.
All documents that is, the PAN details, bank account statements, audited financial statements, balance sheet, profit and loss account, Income Tax acknowledgments, and ROC statements etc were placed on AO's record. One of the directors of share applicant companies appeared before the AO in response to summon u/s 131 of the Act and explained the genuineness of three share applicants. Therefore, considering this factual position and precedents relied on the subject, as noted above, we delete the addition made by the assessing officer U/s 68 - Decided in favour of assessee.
