CBDT proposes clear-cut timelines under transfer pricing
The income-tax (I-T) department has proposed clear-cut timelines by which excess amount assessed by transfer pricing officials (TPOs) over what was declared by associated enterprises of multinational corporations (MNCs) has to be brought in India. These timelines relate to advance pricing agreements (APAs) and mutual agreement procedures (MAPs).In the Union Budget 2016-17, the government has come out with a concept of secondary adjustments. This basically means that if there is primary adjustment either made by the TPO or suo motu by the companies, which differs from what was declared by companies earlier, the excess amount over Rs 10 million has to be brought back to India within a stipulated time.
