Slump Sale Season! >> Watch VideoBefore the amendment made vide Finance Act, 2021 under section 50B of the income Tax Act, 2021 (Act), capital gain on slump sale i.e. transfer of one or more undertakings as a result of the sale for a lump sum consideration without values being assigned to the individual assets and liabilities in such sales was provided to be calculated by taking actual lump sum consideration to be full value of consideration.

However, vide the amendment in Finance Act, 2021 a major amendment has been made which provides that “fair market value of the capital assets as on the date of transfer, calculated in the prescribed manner, shall be deemed to be the full value of the consideration received or accruing as a result of the transfer of such capital asset”. Calculation shall be in the following manner:

Capital Gain= Fair market value of capital asset transferred- Net Worth

Cost of Acquisition = Net worth of the undertaking

Net Worth= Total Asset – Total Liabilities

Total Asset shall be calculated as follows:

  1. in the case of depreciable assets, the written down value of the block of assets determined in accordance with the provisions contained in sub-item (C) of item (i) of sub-clause (c) of clause (6) of section 43;
  2. in the case of capital assets in respect of which the whole of the expenditure has been allowed or is allowable as a deduction under section 35AD, nil; and
  3. in the case of other assets, the book value of such assets. 

Total Liabilities= Book Value of liabilities

Also, no indexation of cost of acquisition is allowed.

Revaluation of assets shall not be considered while computing the “net worth”

A report of a Chartered accountant as defined in the Explanation below sub-section (2) of section 288 before the due date of filing return under section 139 indicating the computation of the net worth of the undertaking or division and certifying that the net worth of the undertaking or division has been correctly arrived.

Therefore, now for the purpose of capital gain the full value of consideration shall be fair market value, to be determined in the manner prescribed, and not the actual lump sum consideration received in respect of slump sale for of one or more undertakings and the capital gain shall be computed in the following manner:

Capital Gain on slump sale = fair market value of capital asset transferred- Net worth of the undertaking.
