Mere facilitation services with regard to the selection of awardees isn’t a technical service

May 1, 2013 429 Views 0 comment Print

From a plain reading of the above clauses, it is seen that the Assessee is not doing any service which falls within the definition of “FIS” as contemplated in Para-4 of Article-12. We agree with the findings of the learned Commissioner (Appeals) that these are merely facilitation services with regard to the selection of awareness for Wockhardt Awards and WHL has not given any technical knowledge from such services, therefore, the learned Commissioner (Appeals) has rightly deleted the said addition. Accordingly, ground no.2, raised by the Revenue is dismissed.

May 1, 2013 588 Views 0 comment Print

Ground No.2 is on the issue of penalty levied by the Stock Exchange. The claim is an amount of Rs. 1,15,663/- on account of payment made to the stock exchange for violation of byelaws of the Stock Exchange. Assessee submitted that the Stock Exchanges are not statutory authorities and therefore, violation of their byelaws could not be considered as violation of law and is only a breach of contractual obligation and therefore, claim is allowable as a deduction. AO however, was of the opinion that the penalty paid violates the provisions of section 37(1) and therefore, the same cannot be allowed as business deduction. The CIT (A) allowed the amount stating that the Stock Exchanges are not government or semi-government bodies and the payments are only for technical violation of regulations which cannot be considered as payment prohibited by law or in connection with an offence. The Revenue is aggrieved by this.
