Involvement in a scam cannot be ground for sustaining penalty imposed u/s. 271E

June 21, 2012 873 Views 0 comment Print

The expression ‘reasonable cause’ used in Section 273B is not defined under the Act. Unlike the expression ‘sufficient cause’ used in Section 249(3), 253(5) and 260A(2A) of the Act, the legislature has used the expression ‘reasonable cause’ in Section 273B of the Act. A cause which is reasonable may not be a sufficient cause. Thus, the expression ‘reasonable cause’ would have wider connotation than the expression ‘sufficient cause’. Therefore, the expression ‘reasonable cause’ in Section 273B for non-imposition of penalty under Section 271E would have to be construed liberally depending upon the facts of each case.

In the said assessment year, the assessee had earned premium of Rs.12,26,140/- on sale of export quota. The Assessing Officer held that this premium is covered by Section 28 (iiia/b/c) and accordingly computed deduction under Section 80HHC but without giving benefit of provisos under sub Section (3) to Section 80HHC. He observed that the export turnover in the previous year was exceeding Rs.10 crores and the assessee had not complied with the several conditions mentioned in the provisos. The sale proceeds received from sale of quota rights were excluded from benefit under the provisos to Section 80HHC(3) as this was not the regular business income of the assessee.

Non-compete Fee is a tool to hide payment of goodwill to sister concern

The assessee has made an attempt to suppress the true colour of the payment towards the goodwill by stating that payments were made towards non compete fee, IPR on brand/brand value, etc. In fact the assessee as well as its sister concern M/s. Pentafour Technologies Limited do have a common CEO and the companies are working under a common management. There is interlacing of activities and interlocking of funds.

Assessee can’t beg immunity for third person from Settlement Commission

June 21, 2012 1192 Views 0 comment Print

The impugned order passed by the Settlement Commission deserves to be upheld as the assessee, it is apparent, is caught in its own web, which it stoutly and strongly deny. Even now in the writ petition they have urged and argued that their conduct and actions were bona fide and solely guided by the noble and honourable desire to come clean with their inglorious past. The assessee claims that they without any motive or intention to help a third person, declared undisclosed taxable income of Rs. 1,36,08,897. It is being recorded that the undisclosed income has been partly accepted and immunity from penalty and prosecution stands granted, but the ‘wrong’ is checkmated and corrected by the Settlement Commission.
