Dear All, pursuant to applicability of AS 26 - Intangible assets, Pre–incorporation expenses can no longer be considered as an asset. It needs to be expensed off as and when in the year the expenses are incurred. However, for tax purposes, the benefit would be recieved in five years.

I agree. Pre-incorporation expenses are no longer allowed to be carried in books as an asset. Request to Others who are of the opinion that it can be deferred needs to do research before answering any answer.

Pre–incorporation expenses denote expenses incurred by the promoters for the purposes of the company before its incorporation. Broadly, these include expenses in connection with: ----(a) preliminary analysis of the conceived idea, ----(b) detailed investigation in terms of technical feasibility and commercial viability to establish the soundness of the proposition, ----(c) preparation of ‘project report’ or ‘feasibility report’ and its verification through independent appraisal authority (before giving final approval to the proposition) and ----(d) organisation of funds, property and managerial ability and assembling of other business elements. These expenses should be properly capitalised and shown in the balance sheet under the heading “Miscellaneous Expenditure”. There is no legal requirement to write–off these expenses to profit and loss account within any specified period of time nor is there any rigid accounting convention in regard to this matter. However, good corporate practice recognises the need
