ORDER

PER: VIKRAM SINGH YADAV, A.M.

This is an appeal filed by the assessee against the order of ld. CIT(A)-22, Alwar dated 26.02.2019 wherein the assessee has taken the following grounds of appeal:-

 “1. On the facts and in the circumstances of the case, the Ld. CIT(A) has grossly erred in confirming the disallowance of Rs.28,40,000/- made by Ld. AO u/s 40(a)(i) of the Act in respect to payment made to Trans Coral Shipping, FZE ,Sharjah (UAE) arbitrarily.

AO has further erred in holding that the payment made by assessee to Trans Coral Shipping, FZE ,Sharjah (UAE) was liable for deduction of tax at source u/s 195 of the Income Tax Act by completely brushing aside the submission made and evidences adduced. Appellant prays disallowance so made is not in accordance with law and deserves to be deleted.

Appellant prays that all the expenses were incurred wholly and exclusively for the purposes of business and therefore disallowance so made deserves to be deleted.”

On perusal of the reply filed by the assessee, the agency agreement dated 11.02.2012 entered into between the assessee and M/s Trans Coral Shipping and copy of bills issued by M/s Trans Coral Shipping FZE, the AO observed that the sales promotion expenses of Rs.28,40,000/- is not an expenditure but distribution of income of the company for the reasons as under:-
