How TaxBuddy Helped

Set-off Against Business Income:

  • TaxBuddy advised Mr. Rathod to set off the HP loss of ₹2,00,000 against his business income, reducing his taxable business income. This led to a lower overall tax liability related to his manufacturing business.


Carry Forward of Losses:

  • Since the HP loss exceeded the income earned from the property, TaxBuddy informed Mr. Rathod about the option to carry forward this loss for up to 8 subsequent financial years. This strategic move could potentially reduce his tax liability in future years.


Let's understand the concept with the help of some figures.

Mr. Rathod operates a small manufacturing business and also owns a residential property that he rents out.  The financial details given below.

  1. Income from Business = 5,50,000

  2. Rent received from house property =   1,20,000

  3. Interest paid on home loan = 3,39,000

  4.  Other Investments = 0
