12 76 INTERMEDIATE (IPC) EXAMINATION: NOVEMBER, 2013 Notes: 1. Where the accommodation is taken on lease or rent by the employer, the value of rent-free accommodation provided to employee would be actual amount of lease rental paid or payable by the employer or 15% of salary, whichever is lower. For the purposes of valuation of rent free house, salary includes: (i) Basic salary ` 3,02,500 (ii) Dearness allowance ` 45,375 (iii) Bonus ` 41,250 (iv) Telephone allowance Total ` 12,000 ` 4,01,125 15% of salary = ` 4,01,125 15/100 = ` 60,169 Value of rent-free house will be - Actual amount of lease rental paid by employer (i.e. ` 1,80,000) or - 15% of salary (i.e., ` 60,169), whichever is lower. Therefore, the perquisite value is ` 60, Any sum paid by the employer in respect of any expenditure actually incurred by the employee on his medical treatment or treatment of any member of his family is exempt to the extent of ` 15,000. Therefore, in this case, the balance of ` 25,000 (i.e., ` 40,000 ` 15,000) is a taxable perquisite. 3. Medical insurance premium paid by the employer to effect an insurance on the health of the employee is fully exempt. 4. If the value of any gift or voucher or token in lieu of gift received by the employee or by member of his household is less than ` 5,000 in aggregate during the previous year, the perquisite value is Nil.

(b) As per rule 5(2) of the Service Tax Rules, 1994, following documents (in duplicate) are to be furnished to the Superintendent of Central Excise at the time of filing the first service tax return: (a) all the records prepared or maintained by the assessee for accounting of transactions in regard to - (i) providing of any service; (ii) receipt or procurement of input services and payment for them; (iii) receipt, purchase, manufacture, storage, sale or delivery in regard of inputs

13 PAPER 4 : TAXATION 77 (b) and capital goods; (iv) other activities, such as manufacture and sale of goods, if any. all other financial records maintained by him in the normal course of business. (c) The selling dealer, who opts for composition scheme, loses input tax credit on inputs purchased and thus, cannot pass on the benefit of input tax credit to the buyer. Consequently, the purchasing dealer buying goods from a dealer operating under composition scheme does not get any tax credit for the goods purchased. Therefore, as soon as a seller opts for the composition scheme, the VAT chain gets broken, and the benefit of tax paid earlier cannot be passed on to the subsequent buyers. The following are not eligible for composition scheme under the VAT regime:- (i) a dealer whose turnover exceeds ` 50 lakh in the last financial year. (ii) a manufacturer or a dealer who sells goods in the course of inter-state trade or commerce. (iii) a dealer who sells goods in the course of import into or export out of the territory of India.

Question 4 (a) Mr. Vaibhav sold a house, held as a capital asset, to his friend Mr. Dhanush on 1 st December, 2012 for a consideration of ` 25,00,000. The Sub-Registrar refused to register the document for the said value, as according to him, stamp duty valuation based on State Government guidelines was ` 45,00,000. Mr. Vaibhav preferred an appeal to the Revenue Divisional Officer, who fixed the value of the house as ` 35,00,000 (` 22,00,000 for land and the balance for building portion). The differential stamp duty was paid, accepting the said value determined. Mr. Vaibhav had purchased the land on 1 st June, 2006 for ` 5,19,000 and completed the construction of the house on 1 October, 2010 for ` 14,00,000.

14 78 INTERMEDIATE (IPC) EXAMINATION: NOVEMBER, 2013 (c) Nature of receipt Amount (`) Interest on enhanced compensation received on for acquisition of urban land, of which 40% relates to the earlier year. 96,000 Rent received for letting out agricultural land for a movie shooting. 72,000 Computation is NOT required. (4 Marks) Mr. Suresh Karthik, a service provider, received an advance of ` 3 lakhs from Mr. Dinesh Raina on Even when the advance was received, there was some doubt as to whether any service will be rendered. No services were rendered to Mr. Dinesh Raina and ultimately on , Mr. Suresh Karthik refunded the amount to him. Mr. Suresh Karthik wants to know whether: (i) (ii) any service tax is payable when the advance was received, and he can make self adjustment of service tax while remitting service tax due for the quarter ended ? (4 Marks) (d) (i) What are the items aggregated in the Addition Method to calculate the VAT payable? When is this method mainly used? (2 Marks) (ii) Answer Is any threshold exemption limit fixed for dealers to obtain VAT registration, as per the White Paper? If yes, why is the same provided? (2 Marks) (a) Tax implications in the hands of Mr. Vaibhav As per section 50C, where the consideration received or accruing as a result of transfer of land or building or both, is less than the value adopted or assessed or assessable by the stamp valuation authority, the value adopted or assessed or assessable by the stamp valuation authority shall be deemed to be the full value of consideration received or accruing as a result of transfer. Where the assessee appeals against the stamp valuation and the value is revised in appeal by the appellate authority (Revenue Divisional Officer, in this case), such value will be regarded as the consideration received or accruing as a result of transfer. In the given problem, land has been held for a period exceeding 36 months and building for a period less than 36 months immediately preceding the date of transfer. Therefore, land is a long-term capital asset, whereas building is a short-term capital asset. Computation of Capital Gains chargeable to tax Particulars ` ` Long term capital gain on sale of land Consideration received or accruing as a result of transfer of land 22,00,000

15 PAPER 4 : TAXATION 79 Less: Indexed cost of acquisition ` 5,19,000 x 852/519 8,52,000 Long-term capital gain (A) 13,48,000 Short-term capital loss on sale of building Consideration received or accruing from transfer of 13,00,000 building Less: Cost of construction 14,00,000 Short term capital loss (B) (1,00,000) Long-term capital gain (A-B) 12,48,000 As per section 70, short-term capital loss can be set-off against long-term capital gains. Therefore, the net taxable long-term capital gains would be ` 12,48,000 (i.e., ` 13,48,000 ` 1,00,000). (b) (i) Yes, it is chargeable to tax. As per section 145A, interest received by the assessee on enhanced compensation shall be deemed to be the income of the year in which it is received, irrespective of the method of accounting followed by the assessee. Interest of ` 96,000 on enhanced compensation is chargeable to tax in the year of receipt i.e. P.Y under section 56(2)(viii) after providing deduction of 50% under section 57(iv). Therefore, ` 48,000 is chargeable to tax under the head Income from other sources. (ii) Yes, it is chargeable to tax. Agricultural income is exempt from tax as per section 10(1). Agricultural income means, inter alia, any rent or revenue derived from land which is situated in India and is used for agricultural purposes. In the present case, rent is being derived from letting out of agricultural land for a movie shoot, which is not an agricultural purpose. In effect, the land is not being put to use for agricultural purposes. Therefore, ` 72,000, being rent received from letting out of agricultural land for movie shooting, is not exempt under section 10(1). The same is chargeable to tax under the head Income from other sources. (c) (i) Charging section, section 66B of the Finance Act, 1994, inter alia, provides that service tax is leviable on the value of services provided or agreed to be provided. Hence, service tax is payable on the advance of ` 3 lakh received by Mr. Suresh Karthik from Mr. Dinesh Raina before the actual provision of service. Further, the point of taxation for the advances received is the date of receipt of such advance. Thus, in the given case, service tax is payable on the date when the advance was received ( ). (ii) Rule 6(3) of the Service Tax Rules, 1994, inter alia, provides that where an assessee

16 80 INTERMEDIATE (IPC) EXAMINATION: NOVEMBER, 2013 has received any payment, against a service to be provided which is not so provided by him for any reason, the assessee may take the credit of such excess service tax paid by him if he has refunded the payment so received for the service provided to the person from whom it was received. Since in the given case, Mr. Suresh Karthik has refunded the payment to Mr. Dinesh Raina, he can take the credit of the service tax paid on ` 3 lakh while remitting the service tax due for the quarter ended on (d) (i) Addition Method aggregates all the factor payments including profits to arrive at the total value addition on which the VAT rate is applied to calculate the VAT. This method is mainly used with income variant of VAT. (ii) Yes, a threshold exemption limit of ` 5 lakh has been provided in the White Paper, to obtain VAT registration. However, subsequently this threshold limit has been increased to ` 10 lakh. The threshold exemption limit is provided in order to provide relief to small dealers.

However, additional depreciation shall not be allowed in respect of, inter alia, any machinery or plant which, before its installation by the assessee, was used either within or outside India by any other person.

21 PAPER 4 : TAXATION 85 IV. Less: Unabsorbed depreciation set-off [See Note 3] 60,000 Nil Short term capital gain on sale of land [See Note 2] 2,30,000 Less: Unabsorbed depreciation set-off [See Note 3] 30,000 2,00,000 Income from other sources Dividend on shares (whether held as stock-in-trade or from a company carrying on agricultural operations) exempt under section 10(34) - Nil Gross total income 3,83,000 Less : Chapter VI-A deduction Section 80C [Principal repayment of housing loan] 70,000 Total income 3,13,000 Notes: (1) Loss from an exempt source cannot be set-off against gains from a taxable source. Since long-term capital gains on sale of listed equity shares through a recognized stock exchange is eligible for exemption under section 10(38), consequently, longterm capital loss on sale of listed equity shares, being loss from an exempt source, cannot be set-off against long-term capital gains on sale of debentures. (2) Since land is held for a period of less than 36 months, the gain of ` 2,30,000 arising from sale of such land is a short-term capital gain. (3) Brought forward unabsorbed depreciation can be adjusted against any head of income. However, it is most beneficial to set-off unabsorbed depreciation first against long-term capital gains, since it is taxable at a higher rate of 20% (the other income of the assessee falling in the 10% slab rate). Therefore, unabsorbed depreciation is first set-off against long-term capital gains to the extent of ` 60,000. The remaining unabsorbed depreciation is adjusted against business income to the extent of ` 65,000 and the balance of ` 30,000 is adjusted against short-term capital gains. In the alternative, the balance of ` 30,000 may also be set-off against income from house property, in which case, the net income from house property would be ` 1,53,000 and short-term capital gains would be ` 2,30,000. The gross total income and total income would, however, remain unchanged. (b) Section 66B, the charging section of the Finance Act, 1994, inter alia, provides that service tax shall be levied on the services provided or agreed to be provided. Therefore, the phrase provided or agreed to be provided has the following implications:- Services which have been provided are chargeable to service tax. Services which have only been agreed to be provided but are yet to be provided, are also chargeable to service tax.

22 86 INTERMEDIATE (IPC) EXAMINATION: NOVEMBER, 2013 Receipt of advances for services agreed to be provided become chargeable to service tax before the actual provision of service. Advances that are retained by the service provider in the event of cancellation of contract of service by the service receiver become chargeable to service tax as these represent consideration for a service that was agreed to be provided. (c) The following purchases are not eligible for input tax credit under VAT legislation: (i) purchases from unregistered dealers; (ii) purchases from registered dealers who opt for composition scheme under the provisions of the Act; (iii) purchase of goods as may be notified by the State Government; (iv) purchase of goods where the purchase invoice is not available with the claimant or there is evidence that the same has not been issued by the registered selling dealer from whom the goods are purported to have been purchased; (v) purchase of goods where invoice does not show the amount of tax separately; (vi) purchase of goods which are being utilized in the manufacture of exempted goods; (vii) purchase of goods used for personal use or consumption or provided free of charge as gifts; (viii) goods imported from other States viz. inter-state purchases; (ix) goods imported from outside the territory of India; (x) goods in stock which have suffered tax under an earlier Act but under VAT Act, they are covered under exempted items.

(b) [Second Alternative] Conditions for applicability of sections 11 and 12 [Section 12A] The exemption provisions contained in sections 11 and 12 shall not apply in relation to the income of any trust or institution unless the following conditions are fulfilled (i) An application for registration of the trust or institution should be made to the Commissioner in the prescribed form and in the prescribed manner. The trust or institution should be registered under section 12AA. (ii) There is no time limit for filing an application for registration. The application can be filed at any time after the creation of the trust or institution. (iii) Accordingly, the provisions of sections 11 and 12 shall apply from the assessment year relevant to the financial year in which the application is made i.e. the exemption would be available only with effect from the assessment year immediately following the previous year in which the application is made. It would not be available in respect of any earlier assessment year. (iv) Where the total income of the trust or institution, without giving effect to the provisions of sections 11 and 12, exceeds the maximum amount which is not chargeable to income-tax in any previous year, the accounts of the trust or institution must be audited by a chartered accountant.

25 PAPER 4 : TAXATION 89 The report of such audit in the prescribed form duly signed and verified by such accountant setting forth such prescribed particulars, should be furnished along with the return of income for the relevant assessment year. (c) As per section 67 of the Finance Act, 1994, if the consideration for a taxable service is not wholly or partly in terms of money, then the value of such service shall be such amount in money, with the addition of service tax charged, is equivalent to the consideration. (d) The deficiencies of VAT system are as under: (i) There is lack of uniformity in the rates of VAT in different States. Distortion occurs on account of different rates of VAT, composition scheme, exemptions, difference in classification of goods, etc. (ii) Central Sales Tax is not integrated with the State VAT. Therefore, it is difficult to put the purchases from other States at par with the purchases within the State. Consequently, the advantage of neutrality is confined only for purchases within the State. (iii) For complying with the VAT provisions, the accounting cost increases which may not commensurate with the benefit to traders and small firms. (iv) VAT is paid at various stages and not at last stage. This has increased the requirement of working capital and the interest burden on the same. (v) VAT, being a consumption tax, tends to be regressive since the proportion of income spent on consumption is large for the poor than the rich. (vi) As a result of introduction of VAT, the administration cost of the States has increased on account of significant increase in number of dealers to be administered. Note: Any four points may be given.
