Dear sir,


How will affect the sundry creditors written off to the total tax liability?

Sundry creditors written off results in income.

If sundry creditors are in respect of expenditure, i.e., purchases, such a treatement shall result in business income and shall be taxable in the hands of the assessee under Section 41(1) of the Income Tax Act.

If however, advance received from a party is written off, then the same is not taxable.

Dear CA Pramod Jain, the entry that you have suggested is incorrect.

Sundry creditors is already a credit balance. It will be debited for writing off the balance.

The correct entry will be as under:

Sundry Creditors A/c Dr. Rs. 8,00,000
To Balance Written Off Rs. 8,00,000

Balance written off will be treated as income and will be credited to Profit & Loss A/c.

If such a huge amount is written off it will be suspect able.It might be happen when the company make payment with black money the balance of the creditors remains stable thats why the company had to write off such a huge amount.How will the income tax authority think about this writing off?

You are declaring the same as income. There should not be any problem.
