Fact That Pvt. Ltd. Company Issued Shares At Exorbitant Premium is Irrelevant If Assessee Has Proved Genuineness Of Transaction: ITAT Mumbai

In the case of DCIT vs. Alcon Biosciences P Ltd, ITAT Mumbai has held that:

Citation: The fact that a pvt. ltd co issued shares at an exorbitant premium is irrelevant if the assessee has proved the genuineness of the transaction. If the assessee has furnished necessary evidence to prove the identity of the share applicants and their PAN details, the department is free to proceed to reopen the individual assessments of the share applicants but it cannot be regarded as undisclosed income of the assessee.

Main Body: As regards the AOs observation with regard to the issue of shares at a face value of Rs.10/- issued at a premium of Rs.990 per share, we find that there is no merit in the findings of the AO for the reason that the issue of shares at a premium and subscription to such shares is within the knowledge of the company and the subscribers to the share application money and the AO does not have any role to play as long as the assessee has proved genuineness of transactions.
