e year, the exact quantum of remuneration has not been specified. At the same time, the partnership deed clearly provides for the manner of quantification of remuneration. It is not a case simpliciter that the partners have left the doors open to claim the remuneration as per section 40(b)(v) of the Act which apparently is the backdrop for issuance of CBDT Circular No. 739, dated March 25, 1996. Given the clear fact and CDBT guidance which rather supports the case of the appellant than the Reven .....

itigation before the Supreme Court, as a matter of precaution, it has created a liability being the provision for entry tax on one hand and at the same time to nullify the effect of such a provision, it has also passed another entry on the assets side as "advance against entry tax". However, the assessee never charged/collected any entry tax from the customers nor the same was claimed at any moment of time as an expenditure in the profit and loss account.

loss account was contrary to the entries made in the accounts inasmuch as the assessee has shown the advance against entry tax on the assets side of the balance-sheet in all the three years and the assessee was maintaining the books of account following the mercantile system of accounting. Hence, in his view the entry tax liability was not allowable in this year and invoking section43B, he made disallowance of ₹ 40,03,853 towards entry tax liability. Being aggrieved, the assessee carried t .....

In the current case, the same was not claimed. It is also not the case that the assessee collected the same from clients but not credited the same to the profit and loss account. Considering the above, I am of the firm view that the addition, was not necessary." 2.3 The learned authorised representative submitted that there cannot be .....

The Assessing Officer completely failed to prove to the contrary. Also it is not case of the Assessing Officer that the assessee though collected entry tax from the customers yet did not deposit the same. It only appears to misconception on the part of the Assessing Officer as regards the accounting treatment. The admitted facts available on record and appar .....

that at the outset, it is a clear case of purported misreading of partnership deed by the Assessing Officer and the facts available on record. A bare perusal of clause 6 of the partnership deed rightly appreciated by the learned Commissioner of Income-tax (Appeals) reveals that the manner of quantifying remuneration to the partners has been given therein where the remuneration has to be worked out based on certain percentage of the book profit. The total amount of the remuneration so worked out .....

None of the authorities have doubted the payment of remuneration to partners. The provisions of section 40(b) permits the allowance only if the claimed remuneration is found authorised by and in accordance with the partnership deed which condition has duly been fulfilled in the present case. In view of these facts .....

It is also provided that the total amount of the remuneration so worked out is to be shared equally amongst all the three partners and in case of loss, no salary would be allowable to the partners. The CBDT circular similarly provides that where either the quantum or the manner of quantification of remuneration to the partners has been specified in the partnership, the same shall be allowable under section 40(b)(v) of the Act and not otherwise.
