My dear friends Uday

we can not claim the deprecation on the sold fixed assets during the year in the business income,but we can claim  it in calculating the capital gain

 

calculation is as follows

Sale consideartion / selling value                                                        -------------

less;-Opening Balance of fixed assets as per the balance sheet  -----------

less:- expenses on transfer / sale of assets                                       ------------

Results ;- will be your Short term capital gain                                -------------------------

no depriciation is avilable in the year of sale if all the assets in the block ends or if sale value is more than wdv of block.

In that case, capital gain or loss has to calculate as per sec. 50

there are 2 case in sec 50

case1-  all assets in block cease to exists

      Sale value after trs. exp.

Less Cost of Acquisition

if bal. is negative it means STCL, otherwise STCG.

 

Case2 -   sale value is more than wdv

Sale value after trs. exp.

Less wdv

bal. is STCG

 

Remember there is no reqirement of indexation

 

correct me if i m wrong

Dear Saurabh bhai u r correct, there will be no depreciation in the year of sale.

Section 50 for computation of capital gains in case of depreciable assets is produced here under:

Section 50. Special Provision for computation of capital gains in case of depreciable assets.

Notwithstanding anything contained in clause (42A) of section 2, where the capital asset is an asset forming part of a block of assets in respect of which depreciation has been allowed under this Act or under the Indian Income-tax Act, 1922 (11 of1922), the provisions of section 48 and section 49 shall be subject to the following modifications :-

(1) where the full value of the consideration received or accruing as a result of the transfer of the asset together with the full value of such consideration received or accruing as a result of the transfer of any other capital asset falling within the block of the assets during the previous year, exceeds the aggregate of the following amounts, namely:-

(i) expenditure incurred wholly and exclusively in connection with such transfer or transfers;

(ii) the written down value of the block of assets at the beginning of the previous year; and

(iii) the actual cost of any asset falling within the block of assets acquired during the previous year, such excess shall be deemed to be the capital gains arising from the transfer of short-term capital assets;

(2) where any block of assets ceases to exist as such, for the reason that all the assets in that block are transferred during the previous year, the cost of acquisition of the block of assets shall be the written down value of the block of assets at the beginning of the previous year, as increased by the actual cost of any asset falling within that block of assets, acquired by the assessee during the previous year and the income received or accruing as a result of such transfer or transfers shall be deemed to be the capital gains arising from the transfer of short-term capital assets.

THERE ARE TWO CONDITIONS FOR CLAIMING DEPRECIATION]

THERE SHOULD BE ASSET IN THE BLOCK AND

THERE SHOULD BE A VALUE(WDV)  IN THE BLOCK 

IN THE PRESENT SCENARIO ALL THE ASSETS HAVE BEEN SOLD IT MEANS NO ASSET EXIST IN THE BLOCK ,THEREFORE YOU CANNOT CLAIM DEPRECITION AND THERE WOULD BE SHORT TERM CAPITAL GAIN/LOSS AS PER SECTION 50
