In effect, the sale invoices of the assessee to its AE can be compared with the sale of invoices of the AE to the independent party. The goods sold are exactly the same, as the goods were dispatched from the warehouse of the assessee to the ultimate buyer who is an independent entity. The time gap between the sale of the assessee and the sale of the AE are negligible because it has happened wi .....

As such there is a fresh stock arrival after every six months and the ones that are replaced are termed old.

s" defies logic. Moreover, there is no submission on record to prove that the two quotes were even used to end up in a negotiation process. However, it is seen that the inventory exported to the overseas AE is not the same that has been further sold to SIMO. This is established from the contents of the articles recorded in the invoice of sale to the AE and the invoice of sale to SIMO. This proves that the same articles have not been sold to any third party as claimed by assessee by filing i .....

ds and this will not make any business sense. The claim of sale of rejected goods Ex-Singapore which has a high cost of inventory holding, cannot be believed for the following reasons 1. The sale invoice did not contain sale or resale of rejected goods. 2. It is against prudent business practice due to huge ware housing charges. The claim is not supported by any credible evidence. The purported sale to the third party does not corroborate economic prudence and this further establishes that the a .....

and covers incidental costs. As such the value of the closing stock which has been toned down by ₹ 4.67 crores contains no element of profit which the assessee should have earned in terms of market outgo.

The gross profit margin posted by the assessee in this year is 22.64% which the assessee should have earned over and above the cost of the inventory. Therefore, the market price of the inv .....

A closer look shows that there exists a close out date for an inventory and it starts getting depreciated even before the close out date and continues progressively at regular intervals of three months. The Ld. AR further stated that the inventory was valued at standard cost. In this light the provisions of AS-2 which defines the valuation of inventories was required to be visited.

Note 13 of Schedule 19 of notes to accounts of the assessee company values the stock of the goods and in the footnote to the same it reads as under:- "Closing stock is a derived figure, .....

ck is that the assessee is not able to sell them in the market at the market price. This is a kind of 'depress sale or clearance sale'. Therefore, to expect the assessee to earn the same margin on such goods is unreasonable and not based on appreciation of circumstances of the assessee. TPO, on the one hand, accepting these goods as slow moving, on the other, he expects the assessee to earn margin at the same rate at which the normal goods of the assessee are also earning.
