It in no way reduces the turnover of the export house. In computing total income, the entire turnover is taken into account even though there is a disclaimer. Thus even though the disclaimer is made the taxable income of ₹ 4.39 crores has been arrived at by the Appellants after taking into account the entire turnover from export .....

In our view, the above observations are against the Appellants. They show that in computing income profits and gains, losses must also be taken into consideration. Mr. Dastur relied on a format of Form No. 10CCAC and a Circular of the Board wherein it is stated as follows: "With the adoption of the du .....

In that view of the matter, the contention raised by the revenue is required to be accepted. Accordingly, question No. (A) in Tax Appeal No.168 .....

All what the Supreme Court has held is that the ceiling contained in Section 80HHC (1B) is not applicable for the purpose of granting deduction under clause (iv) above in the computation of boo .....
