Accounting Question : Provision for bad debts : bad debts : income tax?
High bad debts can only be allowed if you areable to prove that they are genuine bad debts and mere provisioning will not help ur case to claim such high bad debts

Since the allowance is made at 50% of trade debtors, this is a general allowance and is not allowed as a tax deduction. In your tax computation you have to add this amount back to taxable income. Btw, note the preferred a/cg nomenclature - you make an allowance for a doubtful debt but you write off a bad debt. You don't make an allowance for a bad debt because the moment you know it's bad, it's to be written off. And we don't say provision for doubtful debts anymore, we say allowance for doubtful debts because the word provision is defined in IAS 37 "Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets" and such provisions have a different meaning from an allowance.
