ounsel, the non-consideration of section 45(4) of the Act and the judgment of the Apex Court in A.L.A Firm(supra) constitutes a mistake apparent on the face of the record u/s 254(2) of the Act. 3.

evalued the stock-in-trade for the purpose of mutual adjustment. On those circumstances, the Apex Court found that since the stock had been valued at market price, the surplus had to be reflected in the profit of the firm and had to be charged to tax. In the case before this Tribunal, it is not the case of the assessee that stock-in-trade was revalued at the time of dissolution. Since the stock-in-trade and assets were not revalued, this Tribunal has rightly confirmed the order of the lower auth .....

the assessee. After referring to the judgment of the Madras High Court in G.R. Ramachari and Co. vs CIT [1961] 41 ITR 142, the Apex Court found that the principle of valuing the closing stock of a business at cost or market price at the option of the assessee is a principle that would hold good only so long as there is a continuing business and that where business is discontinued, whether on account of dissolution or closure or otherwise by the assessee, then the profit cannot be ascertained exc .....

eriod of time. But here, where the business comes to a close, no future adjustment of an over or undervaluation is possible. In this con- text, it is difficult to see how valuation, at other than cost, can be justified on the principle of Ahmedabad New Cotton Mills' case [1930] LR 57 lA 21 (PC) ; AIR 1930 PC 56. We, however, find substance in the second consideration that prevailed with the High Court. The decision in Muhammad Ussain Sahib v. S. N. A bdul Caffoor Sahib, AIR 1950 Mad 758 ; [1 .....

The assets have to be valued, of courseon the basis of the market value on the date of the dissolution .... " This applies equally well to assets which constitute stockin- trade.

This rule is applicable, notwithstanding the omission of a particular item from the books, e.g., investments, goodwill (Cruikshank v. Sutherland [1922] 92 LJ Ch 136 (HL)). Obviously, the net effect of the revaluation will be a profit or loss divisible in the agreed profit or loss-sharing ratios." 5. In view of the above observation, this Tribunal .....
