To,

All Principal Chief Commissioners of Income Tax

Sub: Modification of Circular No. 21/2015 dated 10.12.2015

Madam/Sir,

References are being received by the Board that in certain cases appellate authorities are dismissing appeals without going into the merits of the case by relying on the definition of ‘tax effect’ as defined in Circular No. 21/2015, which prescribes the monetary limit for filing appeals before various appellate authorities. In certain situations where income is computed under the provisions of section 115JB or section 115JC for the purposes of determination of ‘tax effect’, and the additions made under provisions other than sections 115JB or section 115JC do not impact book profit, the appellate authorities  are  not considering the said additions for the purpose of ‘tax effect’ as defined in para 4 Circular No. 21/2015. The matter has been examined by the Board and the following para may be read as para 4.1 after the para 4 of the Circular No. 21/2015.

“4.1 Where income is computed under the provisions  of section 115JB or section 115JC for the purposes of determination of  ‘tax effect’, tax on the total income assessed shall be computed as per the following formula-

(A-B) +(C-D)

where,

A = the total income assessed as per the provisions other than the provisions contained in section 115JB or section 115JC (herein called general provisions);

B = the total income that would have been chargeable had the total income assessed as per the general provisions been reduced by the amount of the disputed issues under general provisions;

C =  the  total  income  assessed  as  per  the  provisions  contained   in section 115JB or section  115JC;

D = the total income that would have been chargeable had the total income assessed as per the provisions contained in section 115JB or section  115JC been reduced by the amount of disputed issues under the said provisions:

However, where the amount of disputed issues is considered both under the provisions contained in section 115JB or section 115JC and under general provisions, such amount shall not be reduced from total income assessed while determining  the  amount  under item  D.”

2. The Same may brought to the knowledge of all officers working under your charge.

3. This issues with the approval of the Board.

Yours faithfully,
