Asstt. Commissioner of Income Tax Versus M/s Disha Construction

Addition of cash credits u/s 68 of the Income Tax Act, 1961 - Failed to prove credit worthiness of creditors - Disallowance of Interest expenses - Held that:- We notice that the assessee has discharged the initial burden of proof placed upon it u/s 68 of the Act by proving the credit worthiness of all the creditors. As pointed out by Ld CIT(A), the quantum of income declared in the income tax returns is not the sole factor that determine the credit worthiness. On examination of the Balance sheet .....

ny of the evidences furnished by the assessee. Hence, we do not find any reason to interfere with the order passed by the Ld CIT(A) in AY 2008-09.

We have earlier noticed that the assessing officer has followed his reasoning given in the assessment order passed for AY 2008-09 to make the addition of creditors u/s 68 of the Act in this year also. However, the Ld CIT(A) has considered the financial statements furnished by the assessee in respect of each of the creditors and has given a .....

; 18.03 crores as on 1.4.2007. Hence the AO called for details of fresh loans obtained during the year relevant to the AY 2008-09. The assessee filed confirmation letters obtained from the loan creditors, their respective income tax returns and bank statements relevant to the loan transactions. The AO examined the income tax returns filed by the respective creditors and noticed that each of them is disclosing income at a low level, which is no commensurate with the loan given to the assessee.

see can bring back his income from undisclosed sources in the form of loans. The assessee will debit interest and claim the same as expenditure and also deduct tax at source and issue a certificate accordingly. On the other side, the creditors will enable utilisation of their bank accounts and introduce the money, belonging to the assessee, in the midst of several other monetary transactions. Accordingly, transactions are structured, conveniently, and for mutual benefit. The benefit for the cred .....

plained through the financial statements. The Ld CIT(A) also called for a remand report from the AO, but the assessing officer failed to submit the remand report on the financial statements filed by the assessee. Accordingly, the Ld CIT(A) came to the conclusion that the assessee has discharged the primary burden placed upon the assessee u/s 68 of the Act and the assessing officer has failed to rebut the same. Accordingly, the Ld CIT(A) deleted the assessment made u/s 68 of the Act. 6. In assess .....

and consequently deleted the interest disallowance also. 7. We heard the parties and perused the record. It is well settled proposition that the initial burden of proof to prove the cash credits is placed upon the assessee, i.e., the assessee is required to discharge three main ingredients in respect of the cash creditors, viz., the identity of the creditor, the genuineness of the transactions and credit worthiness of the creditor. If the assessee discharges the initial burden so placed upon hi .....

However, a perusal of the assessment order would show that the assessing officer has doubted about the credit worthiness only on the reasoning that the income declared by each of the creditors was lower and disproportionate to the loan amount given by them. It is pertinent to note that the assessing officer did not examine the financial statements like Balance Sheet of each of the creditor to find ou .....

claim of the appellant. Further, I find that Ld AO has wrongly presumed that appellant has not discharged its onus cast upon it in furnishing required evidences of credits appearing in its books of account. Before coming to the individual reasoning given by the AO in the assessment order, here it is pertinent to mention that appellant has produced 4 cash creditors for their examination and Ld AO has examined them but could not trace out any substantial evidences which could prove that credits w .....

ssessing officer has not brought any material on record to show that the explanation furnished was, in any manner, unsatisfactory or there was no reliable evidence with the assessee.

ide para 8 thereof partywise, I find clear that the A.O has merely disbelieved the credit ignoring the fact of complete discharge of primary onus which lay upon the appellant.

In the course of appeal hearing I had directed the appellant to f .....

The Balance sheet of these loan creditors speak for themselves. Moreover, the AO erred in holding that the capacity to advance loan emanates only from the income that is ultimately disclosed in the return of income but the same also flows from the business which in the present case is from trading of diamonds & precious stones. It .....

t the assessing officer did not bring any material on record to rebut the evidences furnished by the assessee:- ….On a perusal of the order sheet (page 4, 5 & 6) which is annexed to the assessment order, it is seen that the A.O has done nothing to rebut the evidence already placed on record by the appellant.
