ii) Treatment of bank interest


The bank interest before the completion of the building is capital in nature and will be
included as capital expenditure of the cost of the building. However, the bank interest
attributable to the cost of construction of the building will be included as qualifying
expenditure and ranks for industrial building allowance.

The bank interest incurred after the completion of the building is revenue in nature and
will be deducted from the company's profit.
