CASH PAYMENT EXCEEDING 20000 40(A)3 EXCEPTIONS UNDER RULE 6DD

SHARE:

Section 40A(3)(a) of the Income-tax Act, 1961 provides that any expenditure incurred in respect of which payment is made in a sum exceeding Rs.20,000/- otherwise than by an account payee cheque drawn on a bank or by an account payee bank draft, shall not be allowed as a deduction.

However if payment is being made for plying, hiring or leasing goods carriages then Limit for these section is Rs 35000/-,instead Of 20000/- 

Section 40A(3)(b) also provides for deeming a payment as profits and gains of business or profession if the expenditure is incurred in a particular year but the payment is made in any subsequent year in a sum exceeding Rs. 20,000/- otherwise than by an account payee cheque or by an account payee bank draft. 


Section 40A(3) is an anti tax-evasion measure. By requiring payments to be made by an account payee instrument, it is possible to verify the genuineness of the transaction thereby mitigating the risk of evasion.Person are splitting a particular high value payment to a person into several cash payments, each below Rs.20,000/-. This splitting is also resorted to for payments made in the course of a single day.Courts have also held that the statutory limit in section 40A(3) applies to payment made to a party at one time and not to the aggregate of the payments made to a party in the course of the day as recorded in the cash book.According to the judicial opinion, the words used are ‘in a sum’, i.e., single sum.Therefore, irrespective of any number of transactions, where the amount does not exceed the prescribed amount in each transaction,the rigours of section 40A(3) will not apply. 

To overcome the splitting of payments (as given above) to the same person made during a day as referred above and to increase the efficacy of the provision, an amendment was made through Finance act 2008 and after 01.04.2008, where a payment or aggregate of payments made to a person in a day, otherwise than by an account payee cheque drawn on a bank or account payee bank draft, exceeds twenty thousand rupees, the disallowance of such expenditure shall be made under the proposed sub-section (3) of section 40A or the payment shall be deemed to be the profits and gains of business or profession under the proposed sub-section (3A) of section 40A,as the case may be.

EXAMPLE :To illustrate with an example, let us assume a taxpayer has incurred an expenditure of Rs 40,000/-. The taxpayer makes separate payments of Rs 15,000/-, Rs 16,000/- and Rs 9,000/- all by cash, to the person concerned in a single day. The aggregate amount of payment made to a person in a day, in this case, is Rs 40,000/-. Since, the aggregate payment by cash exceeds Rs 20,000/-,Rs. 40,000/- will not be allowed as a deduction in computing the total income of the taxpayer in accordance with the proposed amendment.

CLARIFICATION REGARDING THE MEANING OF THE EXPRESSION 'FISH OR FISH PRODUCTS' USED IN SUB-CLAUSE (iii) OF CLAUSE (f) OF RULE 6DD OF THE INCOME-TAX RULES, 1962
CIRCULAR NO. 10/2008, DATED 05-12-2008

Representations have been received from various quarters regarding problems being faced by the seafood exporters mainly on account of provisions of Section 40A (3) of the Income-tax Act, 1961.

2. Disallowance of expenditure under the provisions of sub-section (3) of Section 40A of the I.T. Act, 1961 is made in the computation of income in a case where a payment or aggregate of payments exceeding twenty thousand rupees is made to a person in a day, otherwise than by an account payee cheque drawn on a bank or an account payee bank draft. However, payment otherwise than by an account payee cheque drawn on a bank or by an account payee bank draft exceeding twenty thousand rupees does not attract the aforesaid disallowance in certain circumstances as prescribed under rule 6DD of the Income-tax Rules, 1962. Such exceptions, inter-alia, refer to payment made to the producer for the purchase of ‘fish or fish products' under sub-clause (iii) of clause (e) of rule 6DD. [Clause (f) of rule 6DD prior to coming into effect of the I.T. (Eighth Amendment) Rules, 2007 w.e.f. A.Y. 2008-09].

3. The following clarifications are, therefore, being issued for proper implementation of rule 6DD of the Income-tax Rules, 1962:—
(i) The expression ‘fish or fish products' used in rule 6DD(e)(iii) would include 'other marine products such as shrimp, prawn, cuttlefish, squid, crab, lobster etc.'.
(ii) The 'producers' of ‘fish or fish products' for the purpose of rule 6DD(e) of I.T. Rules, 1962 would include, besides the fishermen, any headman of fishermen, who sorts the catch of fish brought by fishermen from the sea, at the sea shore itself and then sells the fish or fish products to traders, exporters etc.

4. It is further clarified that the above exception will not be available on the payment for the purchase of fish or fish products from a person who is not proved to be a 'producer' of these goods and is only a trader, broker or any other middleman, by whatever name called.
