Depreciation amount claimed in the P&L account is disallowed by the AO due to assets are not used to the business purpose. company has some units. In one of the unit assets are ready to dispose not used in the business purpose but company claimed that depreciation in their books of accounts
Here my question is whether we claim that depreciation amount in P&L? If yes, please mention reasons and some judicial pronouncements
There is no choice with an assessee toclaim or not to claim depreciation. If the asses is once put to use, depereciation shall be deemed to have been claimed and allowed.
In my view, depreciation is admissible in such cases even if assets is not in use.
