Bombay High Court Affirms Special Bench Law On Brokers’ Bad Debts

In DCIT vs. Shreyas S. Morakhia 40 SOT 432 the ITAT Mumbai Special Bench held that a broker was eligible to claim a deduction of the entire amount due to him from his client as a “bad debt” even though only the brokerage (and not the entire amount) had been offered as income. This judgement has been affirmed by the Bombay High Court today, 28.02.2012.
