under section 40 A 3 limit is only 20000/- per day per person ... n that increased limit is for transporters which is 35000/- per day per person.... if an expense has been done for more than 20000/- in a day in cash then whole expenditure will be disallowed................

Full amount will be add back in case of payment greater then 20000 in cash/Bearer Cheque.

ie if you are making payment of 30,000 then full amount 30000 will be disallowed.

1- Section 40A(3) a It provides that any expenditure incurred as a payment in sum of exceeding Rs.20000/- otherwise of paying with payee account cheque, demand draft or any transaction made by banks like RTGS, shall not be allowed as a deduction. However if payment is being made for hiring or leasing, the limit is 35000.

2- Section 40A(3)(B) It also provides that the payment will be deemed as profits of the business if the expenditure incurred in the books but payment is made exceeding Rs. 20000 in cash, otherwise of paying with payee account cheque, demand draft or any transaction made by banks like RTGS.

3- Section 40A (3) It provides that the payment in a single day should not be exceeding Rs. 20000. It doesn’t mean the single payment shouldn’t 20000 but the aggregate amount should not exceed the limit. Some parties split high value payment into several cash payment for evasion of section 40A (3) a, so this rule is for evasion of payments.

4- There is also a rule that payment made to a person in a single day, otherwise of paying with payee account cheque, demand draft or any transaction made by banks like RTGS, exceeds the limit; the payment will be deemed as profits of the company according to proposed sub-section (3) of section 40(A).
