For AY 2019-20, tax auditor in his report dated 28.09.2019 had considered for disallowance unpaid provision for bonus of Rs.33 lacs in books of the assessee company as on 31.03.2019. ITR for AY 2019-20 was filed on 23.10.2019. Between date of tax audit report and date of ITR, the assessee company had paid bonus of Rs.32 lacs out of the provision of Rs.33.lacs. However, this was not considered while filing the ITR. Subsequently, in the ITR for AY 2020-21 also such paid amount was not claimed. What are options available to the assessee company in this regard? Please help.
