ts subsidiary company - ITAT deleted addition - Held that:- The entire net current assets too were valued and transferred. It was the aggregate of the book value and the net current value which constituted the sale price of ₹ 2,02,40,560/-towards which shares were in fact allotted. Given these facts, the AO appears to have assumed that the other liabilities and assets too had been transferred - which was an inaccurate assumption. The CIT (A) too appears to have ignored this important featu .....

s own funds and that in these circumstances, the CIT (A) fell into error in considering fresh materials. The submissions appear to be attractive considering that the CIT (A) has stated that the appellant placed before him copies of the relevant bank accounts. However, this Court sitting in second appeal against the decision of the lower authorities has to be circumspect in such matters. This ground does not appear to have been urged before the ITAT articulating that the CIT (A) omitted to give a .....

quently could not have been treated as revenue expenditure but had to be necessarily capitalised, since it went towards augmenting stock in trade. The CIT (Appeals) confirmed this decision. The ITAT in its order (para 45 and 45.1) was of the opinion that the view taken by the lower authorities was erroneous. In doing so, the ITAT was persuaded by the fact that for all previous years and subsequent years the hundi discounting charges were treated as a period cost and charged to revenue account on .....

interest on borrowed capital and that the expression for the purpose of business‟ under Section 36(1)(iii) and Section 37 is wider than the expression for the purpose of earning income, profits and gains under Section 57(iii). Therefore, it was held that interest paid for the purpose of or in the course of carrying on business is allowable in the year in which the liability arose. This Court is also of the opinion that given the dictates of consistency, the view adopted by the ITAT is fair .....

agreed value. The net fixed value of the assets (at book value) was ₹ 1,39,89,734/-. The net current assets were at ₹ 2,02,40,560/-. The total value of the assets thus was ₹ 3,42,30,294/-. As against these assets, a secured loan to the extent of ₹ 1,01,43,452/- existed in the assessee s books. The consideration, therefore, claimed from the sister concern - in lieu of which shares were allotted - was ₹ 2,40,86,842/-. The Assessing Officer after noticing these facts, .....

n the basis of the following reasoning: - 51. We have heard both the parties at length and perused the papers documents referred to. We have carefully perused the orders of the AO and CIT (A) and the papers on record. The transaction has been done at cost i.e. book value. Income or profit accrues only if anything over and above the book value i.e. the cost is paid by the transferor to the transferee. Mere realisation of the assets or changing the asset from one form to another form do not give r .....

ise. There is no evidence of anything more having passed between the parties than the consideration allotted as shares to the assessee. Accordingly, we delete the addition of ₹ 1,00,97,198/- made on this account. 4. This Court has considered the submissions of the parties. What appears to have escaped the attention of the AO is that at the stage of valuation of the assets transferred itself, the book value of the fixed assets transferred was taken into consideration. Additionally, the enti .....

usion that regardless of how the assessee treated the transaction, i.e., either reflecting in the P&L account or omitting to do so, in sum, no gain or income arises which can be brought to tax. The question of law is answered in favour of the assessee and against the Revenue. Question No.3 5. The Assessing Officer added back the sum of ₹ 47,85,650/- during the assessment year on the ground that the assessee had not claimed any interest towards the advance of ₹ 2,65,86,781/- to it .....

ut of borrowed funds. There is no nexus between the borrowed funds on which the interest is being paid by the appellant and the moneys advanced to the subsidiaries. There cannot be any ground for charging and notional income to tax. However, the proportionate interest could be disallowed if the borrowed funds had been diverted for non-business purposes. This is not the case. The fact that even day-to-day expenses of these subsidiaries including their tax liabilities are me by the appellant compa .....

ant placed before him copies of the relevant bank accounts. However, this Court sitting in second appeal against the decision of the lower authorities has to be circumspect in such matters. This ground does not appear to have been urged before the ITAT articulating that the CIT (A) omitted to give any opportunity to it to re-examine such materials. Such ground also does not appear to have been urged during the hearing. Furthermore, this has not been raised as a ground of appeal before this Court .....
