CBDT issues new norms for transfer pricing cases
April, 06th 2016

The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has come out with new instructions on transfer pricing that could go a long way in establishing non-adversarial tax regime for MNCs operating in India.

Replacing all earlier instructions on transfer pricing assessments, the latest instruction could pave the way for sharp reduction in transfer pricing litigation in India and give a boost to taxpayer confidence on the Indian tax system.

Power of officer

The new instruction significantly rationalises the power of Assessing Officer while referring cases to transfer pricing officer, to only three specified circumstances. Moreover, the power of assessing officers to make transfer pricing adjustment has been completely withdrawn.

Amit Agarwal, Partner-Transfer Pricing, Nangia & Co, said that the administrative withdrawal of the power of assessing officer to make transfer pricing addition would definitely go a long way in reducing transfer litigation. Henceforth, transfer pricing additions can only be penned by the transfer pricing officer.

Focus on quality

Agarwal also said that the new instruction demonstrates focus of the Government on quality of transfer pricing litigation rather than quantity.

It is expected that the quantum of transfer pricing litigation could fall by as much as 50 percent over next year, he said.

“In simple terms, the new instruction is significant, incredible and remarkable news for MNCs in India,” Agarwal said.

More transparent

Samir Gandhi, Partner, Deloitte, Haskins & Sells said the revised guidelines dated March 10 — applicable with immediate effect — requires Assessing officer not to determine arms length price for transfer pricing. Only transfer pricing officer will do the same, Gandhi added.

The risk parameters for selection of cases for transfer pricing can be made known to the taxpayers which will be transparent and also act as a deterrent for application of correct transfer pricing, he said.

The non transfer pricing risk parameters are broadly the same as in earlier years, he said.
