As per section 40(b)(v) any payment of remuneration to any partner who is a working partner, authorized by, and is in accordance with, the terms of the partnership deed and relates to any period falling after the date of such partnership deed in so far as the amount of such payment to all the partners during the previous year exceeds the aggregate amount computed as here under will be disallowed:

(b) on the balance of the book-profit at the rate of 60 percent.
Explanation 3 to section 40(b) defines “book-profit” as the net profit, as shown in the profit and loss account for the relevant previous year, computed in the manner laid down in Chapter IV-D as increased by the aggregate amount of the remuneration paid or payable to all the partners of the firm if such amount has been deducted while computing the net profit.
