ced that the assessee has claimed excess depreciation for the year under consideration at ₹ 16,42,863/- as calculated by the AO at ₹ 5,82,899/- .

r:- 10. A perusal of the above provisions shows that the WDV in respect of which depreciation is to be calculated is the actual cost of the asset to the assessee as reduced by the amount of the depreciation actually allowed to the assessee. Now in the instant case, it is not in dispute that in the earlier years no depreciation was allowed to the assessee in respect of the fixed assets in question. The Revenue could not bring on record any material before us to show that though the depreciation w .....

ion allowed to the assessee in assessment and not the amount which ought to have been allowed to the assessee. It is the actual depreciation allowed to the assessee which only can be reduced for ascertaining the WDV and not the amount which is notionally allowed to the assessee. Thus, in the absence of any material brought before us to show that any remedial measure was taken by the Revenue in the earlier assessment years to actually allow the depreciation to the assessee in the year in which th .....

e assessee s case in assessment years 1999-00 to 2001-02 no depreciation claim has been made by the assessee and no depreciation has been allowed by the AO and once this is a case, the depreciation has to be computed on the WDV taken at the end of the year. The AO in this year re-computed the WDV by thrusting upon the depreciation of earlier years. Accordingly, we find force in the arguments of Ld. Counsel for the assessee that the depreciation is to be allowed without considering the depreciati .....

The assessee contended that the writing off is on account of discount and commission deducted by six customers from their payments over a period of years. The Assessing Officer disallowed the claim of bad debt by observing that the assessee has continuing business relationship with these customers in whose account written off has been made and claimed as bad debt. The AO also observed that the assessee has business transaction with these parties sinc .....

r. There is a force in the observation of the AO that it is not a case in which the appellant has suddenly come to know of any debt becoming bad. It is a case in which the customers of the appellant gave short-payments and availed discounts on transactions with appellant year after year. Thus, the claim of the appellant in the year under reference is out of place, misconceived and with a mala fide intention to reduce the tax burden in the year in which the tax-holiday is over. The appellant is n .....

CIT in Civil Appeal No.5293 of 2003 dated 9th February, 2010. The Ld. counsel for the assessee stated that this common issue in the appeals of the assessee is in favour of assessee and against the Revenue as the assessee has written off these bad debts in its books of account. 9. After hearing the rival contentions and we find that these expenses writ .....
