Interest on TDS is not a allowable enpenditure.

Infact any type of interest piad under Income tax Act 1961 is not allowable.

Refer Sec 40(a) or 37

 Do you mean late filing penalty on TDS??

Dude, As far as I know, all types of penalties, interest for late payments were not allowed as an expense.

Simple rule is that "all expenses incurred for the business/profession" can be shown as deduction

extra expenses incurred for business/prof. due to the mnanagement delay that is not allowed as an expense..

For ex:  Insurance policy remium - Rs.1000  late payment fee Rs.150.

Total premium paid is Rs.1150

While computation of Income of individual/Buss./Prof.  only Rs1000 can be shown as a deduction but not Rs.1150

Warm Regards

 Payment of income-tax is not deductible as per section 40(a)(ii); hence, interest under sections 139, 215 and 217 which is to be regarded as accretion to tax, cannot also be allowed to be deducted - Assam Forest Products (P.) Ltd. v. CIT [1989] 180 ITR 478 (Gauhati).

Note : On the same principle, interest payable under sections 220(2), 234A, 234B or 234C is also not deductible

section 40(a)(ii) disallows only tax on profits and gains of business

Dear,

Interest on TDS is in the nature of Penal Interest, so it will not be allowable as business expenditure.
