Depreciation on car sold in the same year

This query is : Resolved 

25 March 2009 hi,

I had opening balance(WDV) of ford car of Rs 720000/- as on 1-4-2007 and i have sold the same car on 20-1-2008 for Rs 560000/- and further no new car has been purchased .

My queries are-

1) Can I claim deprecition of ford car for Financial year 2007-08?

2) If yes then at what rate?

3) If no, please give me the reasons citing specific sections of the act.

25 March 2009 No you Can't. Section 32 of Income tax provides depreciation on Block of Asset not on individual asset. Even though you will get depreciation only when your car is used for business purpose.
Furthure, as you said their are not any other asset in the block, this result in Short term Capital Gain.
If any other asset is their in Block then only you can take depreciation on opening valu of Block.

23 April 2009 Can I claim deprecition of ford car for Financial year 2007-08?
No you can not, as depreciation is calculated on the block of assets at the end of the year i.e. on 31-3- of previous year.since as on last day of the PY block does not has any assets so NO depreciation


2) If yes then at what rate?

N.A.

3) If no, please give me the reasons citing specific sections of the act.

Beaciuse NO depreciation is available if the block of assets
1. either does not has any assets

or
2. Block has Nil value

23 April 2009 agree with expert

05 July 2009 If the block of assests liable for depreciation @ 15% has any assets left then dep will be allowable otherwise not.

13 June 2015 WHAT SHOULD BE DONE WHEN SAME CASE IN COMPANIES ACT?
WHETHER WE SHOULD PROVIDE DEP AS PER COMPANIES ACT OR NOT?

15 June 2015 Depreciation has to provided as per Companies Act pro rata to the date of sale of assets and gain / loss on sale to be accounted for.
