ORDER

This is assessee’s appeal for the A.Y 2018-19 against the order, dated 26.04.2019 passed by the National Faceless Appeal Centre (NFAC), New Delhi in respect of the appeal filed by the assessee before the CIT (A) Tirupati.

2. The only issue in this appeal is the disallowance u/s 36(1)(va) of the Act of delayed deposit to PF & ESI Contribution. I find that that the A.Y before the Tribunal is 2019-20 and under the Finance Act of 2021, Explanation 5 to section 43B of the Act has been introduced and also Explanation 2 to clause (va) of section 36(1) has been introduced to the effect that the provisions of section 43B shall be deemed to never have been applied to employee’s contribution to PF & ESI paid beyond the due date under the relevant Act.

3. Respectfully following the same, I hold that since the assessee has deposited the Employees Contribution to the PF and ESI before filing the return of income, the same is not to be disallowed. Assessee’s appeal is accordingly allowed.

4. In the result, assessee’s appeal is allowed.
Order pronounced in the Open Court on 30th August, 2021.
