Can you tell me if we purchase car against loan and while taking loan for car we have incurred loan procession charges so can this be included in cost of car?or it has to be treated as revenue expenses?

I think it should be capitalised in the cost of car. becuase borrowing expenses directly related to car.

These charges will be capitalised, since Borrowing costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition, construction or production of a qualifying asset are included in the cost of that asset. Such borrowing costs are capitalised as part of the cost of the asset when it is probable that they will result in future economic benefits to the entity and the costs can be measured reliably.
If, However, Company has the policy to recognize these charges as revenue expense then please note that Standards always overrule company's policy, if there is a contradiction in between company's policy and standards then obviously company's policy should suitably be amended to make it in line with the applicable standard.
I hope it helps.

generally loan preocessing charges charged by bank is not considerable unless the loan amt is very high.. it is generally considered in loan amount itself.. somehow , if some one wants to consider it as revenue expenses.. then it shuld be noted that , it shuld not be a pvt car of someone.. if company is buying cars for business purpose , it can charge it as revenue expense or capital expenses as it may deem fit

it cannot be capitalised and has to be charged to revenue as car is not a qualifying asset and so proccessing fees cannot be capitalised.
