As far as the Partnership Firm is concerned, it has to pay the tax on the Net Profit.

After payment of the tax what remains is (net profit minus tax paid) has to be shared between the partners in the agreed ratio.  Such shared income is not taxable again at the hands of the partners.

However, if the partner had earned any income by way of salary from the partnership, then that salary income etc., is taxable at applicable rates. (This is because such salary payment being expenses of the Firm stands deducted from the partnership income and only net income of the partnership was taxed.)  Such salary income being income of the partner concerned has therefore to be taxed at his hands.

Hello Dear friend I have calculated the tax liability of firm and its partners as per the info available. Where you were not specific I have calculated as per my assumptions. If you need more information feel free to contact me on my email  birkodikar@hotmail.com

 

COMPUTATION FOR PARTNERSHIP FIRM

1.  INCOME FROM BUSINESS

     
       

    Nett profit of partners [50% Share of each]

   

            Partner -  "A"

    1,071,412.00

   

            Partner -  "B"

    1,071,412.00

   
   

    2,142,824.00

 

    Add: Remunaration/salary paid to partners

   

            Partner -  "A"

       680,000.00

   

            Partner -  "B"

    1,180,000.00

   
   

    1,860,000.00

 

    Add: Interest paid to partners

     

            Partner -  "A"

                    -  

   

            Partner -  "B"

                    -  

   
   

                    -  

 
   

    4,002,824.00

 

    Less: Interest paid on partner's capital

 

                    -  

 
   

    4,002,824.00

 

    Less: Remuneration as per 40(b)

 

    1,860,000.00

 
     

    2,142,824.00

 

Rounded off to

 

    2,142,820.00

 

Tax on income

 

       642,846.00

 

Education cess payable

         12,857.00

 

Total tax payble

 

       655,703.00

 

Tax paid

 

                    -  

 

Payable

 

      655,703.00

       

Notes:

     

            Salary treated to be paid by the firm where they are partners

 

            I have assumed that remuneration paid to each parter is Rs.250,000/-

            Further I have assumed that salary paid to partners is exclusive of remuneration

            If remuneration that you have mentioned is inclusive of salary then tax effect will be different

            As the info submitted by you raises some confusions, I have assumed the above things for computation

            If salary and remuneration total would have been Rs.13,75,700/- then firms tax liability would have been reduced considerably


 

 

       

COMPUTATION OF INCOME [ FOR PARTNER  "A"]

       258,000.00

       265,740.00

 

Tax paid/Deducted

-

 

Payable

 

265,740.00

       
       

Notes:

     

·            Nett profit of partnership firm not to be included for the purpose of taxation in the hands of partners

·            However clauses which are incorporated in Partnership deed play a vital role in computation of tax liability

·            Hence consider/read clauses of partnership deed carefully before filing return of income

·            For the purposof computation remuneration/salary either debited in accounts or as per computation whichever is higher among this shall be taken in to computation of partners income.

·            In this case I have taken as debited in books of accounts ( I presumed on info available)
