CITATION:
S. 30/ 37(1): Expenditure on repairs of rented premises, even if huge and accumulated, are allowable as revenue expenditure. Fact that CIT(A) admitted additional evidence is no justification for seeking a set aside to the AO if the CIT(A) called for a remand report from the AO: Savarana Spinning mills Limited 293 ITR 201 (SC) distinguished

The contention of the revenue that Hon’ble Supreme Court has held in CIT vs. M/s. Saravana Spinning Mills Pvt. Ltd. 293 ITR 201 pleading that the most of the expenditure are not in the nature of current repair expenditure but accumulated repairs so even though the expenditure is revenue in nature, same is not allowable.

In the present case, the issue is not of repairs on plant and machinery but related to expenditure on building, further the building is also not owned by the assessee but is a rented premises. The expenditure would be dealt with by the provision of section 30. On reading of the above section, the accumulated repairs are not allowed when the assessee owns building and therefore as a tenant cost of repairs to the premises is allowable whether they are accumulated or current

CITATION:
Expenditure towards repair and renovation of leased premises is capital in nature. Method for allocation of common expenses to different WIP projects of a builder explained

The assessee being a builder and developer, Accounting Standard 7 (AS-7), issued by the ICAI, titled, ‘Construction Contracts’, would not apply, so that the prescription of AS-9 and AS-2, based on general principles that govern any business, would apply for the revenue recognition and inventory valuation respectively. Only costs incurred toward a particular project, or otherwise related to construction activity, would stand to be allocated and, thus, capitalized as a part of the project cost
