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.

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?
