Re-assessment on the basis of CBDT circular not justified

February 7, 2013 2490 Views 0 comment Print

The CBDT, through its circular, could have brought certain aspects to the notice of the Assessing Officer, insofar as assessment was concerned. It had to be the opinion of the Assessing Officer alone which would prevail. In that view of the matter, the circular of CBDT may be a trigger, on the basis of which, the Assessing Officer may himself be satisfied that income chargeable to tax in a given case had escaped assessment.

Buyback of Shares – Is it a Tool for Companies to Come out of Crisis Situations?

SECTION 77 restricts the buyback of own shares from the market by the company or its subsidiaries/parent company. This restriction was imposed on the companies to ensure that these companies do not indulge in unfair and mal trade practices by unnecessarily blowing up their share prices in the market and misleading the investors by giving the misconception that their shares are doing well in the market by adopting techniques of speculation.

Budget 2013-14 – Key expectations of Insurance Sector

February 7, 2013 1737 Views 0 comment Print

I believe the key to 2013-14 budget will be to rein in fiscal deficit, control expenditure (slashing subsidies etc), show buoyancy in tax revenues (without raising rates) and yet present a people and investment friendly budget.

Form No.10 for income accumulation can be submitted by a trust either on assessment or re-assessment

One has to keep in mind the fact that while reopening of an assessment cannot be asked for by the assessee on the ground that it had not furnished Form No. 10 during the original assessment proceedings, this does not mean that when the revenue reopens the assessment by invoking section 147, the assessee would be remediless and would be barred from furnishing Form No. 10 during those assessment proceedings. Therefore, Form No. 10 could be furnished by the assessee-trust during the reassessment proceedings.

Ocean freight was prima facie not covered under any entry, hence, could not be covered under BSS also

In the case of consideration received for freight we are of the prima facie view that ocean freight was not liable to service tax. While there are specific entries in Finance Act, 1994 levying tax on transportation of goods by road, rail, aircraft, pipeline etc. there is no entry levying tax on transportation by sea. It has to be reasonably presumed that this is kept outside the tax net and it cannot be taxed under a general entry like business support services. Further it appears that such services are rendered in respect of export cargo.
