    I have applied for the Name of Section 8 Company for Micro Finance, But CRC has not considered the name and provided the below reason The Proposed name with phrase word ?MICRO CREDIT, MICROFINANCE? is considered undesirable being NBFC/Financial activity (ies) for Section 8 Company. This can be considered on declaration according to rule 8(2)(b)(XIII) read with rule 8(2)(b)(III) of Companies Incorporation rules 2014.This declaration is reflected in e-form INC-1 on selection of field at para 14a as Yes but this field is not available for Section 8 Companies. Accordingly, proposed name is not considerable. Further, as per act we can incorporate section 8 Company for Micro Finance without RBI Approval. and as per FAQS provided on MCA site Can I apply for a name in INC-1 to incorporate a Section 8 company with the words ‘micro-finance’ in its name? Yes for this type of name, you can apply along with declaration as per rule 12 of the Companies (Incorporation) Rule, 2014 if, license is issued under section 8. However, Finance activity is under regulatory control of RBI. Hence at the time of filing incorporation documents promoters/director of proposed company are required to give undertaking as per rule 12 of the Companies (Incorporation) Rules, 2014. Now, what all I have to provide to obtain the name of Section 8 Company for Micro Finance

    As per section 194A(3)(v), Provisions of Section 194(1) shall not apply if interest payment made by co operative society (Other than a Co operative Bank) to a member thereof or by a co operative society to any other co operative society. It means that Co operative bank has to deduct TDS on Interest payment made to its members. But what if a Co operative society having Dual Capacity( Member as well as Co operative society) than whether TDS has to be deduct or not at the time of interest payment by a co operative bank ( co operative society ) to another co operative society being a member?

  21. Satyendra Kishore says:

    • Gautom says:

      You can deduct TDS this year . There is no question of penalty .Because you did not deduct TDS due to lack of knowledge about applicability of TDS on such type transaction .But you will have to pay interest to be calculated @ 1.5% per month from the date of 1st installment up to date of payment of TDS

    Bank has sold the immovable assets of the borrower under Sarfaesi Act and recovered a hand sum amount by selling the immovable assets of the borrower in a purported public auction ,which was void of public participation.As the borrower lost his counter claim his OA/matter is pending for adjudication before DRAT, since last couple of years.However Recovery officer has issued further notice under RDDB Act for the recovery of balance amount.But suddenly the borrower has realized that the bank had not sold his movable assets ,which were in possession of the bank since last 8 years and had also not set of the value of the same from the purported dues.Now my question is that how the bank could retain the movable assets of the borrower since last more than 8 years, and how pending set of or adjustment of the value of the movables , bank could issue recovery certificate against the borrower for the balance amount under the RDDB ACT 1993? Is it not a fraudulent act on the part of the bank to issue or get issued such a recovery notice ,without the determination of the actual dues .is is also not violation of the Sarfaesi act that the bank did not dispose of the movable assets prior to the disposal of the immovable assets ,8 years ago? It is pertinent to mention here that in the instant matter bank was the seller and the bank was the auction buyer at the reserve price , without paying the mandatory 25% of the bid amount at the fall of the hammer and that too without the consent of the borrower.Under such circumstances can’t the borrower file a damage suit against the bank and also demand the return of his assets on the plea of flagrant violation of Sarfaesi act?

    Subject: PAN No. ARIPK4069N issued Two Individual Persons -reg.

    With due respect, I am requesting to NSDL, Mumbai by Email ( from last 5 months regarding (Same Permanent Account Number (PAN) to two different individuals allotted by NSDL, but till date no any action/correction done by the NSDL.

    I have issued a PAN No. ARIPK4069N (ASHOK KUMAR) on June 2006 by NSDL, Acknowledgement No. 010100200295500, Branch-1010, Alankit Assignment Limited, New Delhi. But My PAN No. ARIPK4069N have been again re-issued on September 2014 other person (AJAY KUMAR) Acknowledgement No.072799700032500.

    Now you can seem the above differences both PAN No.ARIPK4069N (Ashok Kumar) issued to me on June 2006 year. And second AJAY KUMAR re-issued on September 2014, and as such I am feeling very much tension in my mind as I have to fill the Taxes and the other legal deposits like Income Tax etc..

    I am a Central Government Employee of Directorate General of Inspection Customs & Central Excise, New Delhi. My PAN No ARIPK4069N does not match in my name for Tax Deduction and it seems to be an error at Income Tax department. My NPS (PRAN No.110063654557) issued me January 2014 by NSDL and deduction contributing amount per months from my salary per months.

    Please take necessary action as soon as possible.

    Subject: PAN No. ARIPK4069N issued Two Individual Persons -reg.

    With due respect, I am requesting to NSDL, Mumbai by Email ( from last 5 months regarding (Same Permanent Account Number (PAN) to two different individuals allotted by NSDL but till date no correction done by the NSDL.

    I have issued a PAN No. ARIPK4069N (ASHOK KUMAR) on June 2006 by NSDL, Acknowledgement No. 010100200295500, Branch-1010, Alankit Assignment Limited, New Delhi (copy enclosed). But My PAN No. ARIPK4069N have been again re-issued on September 2014 other person (AJAY KUMAR) Acknowledgement No.072799700032500
    Now you can seem the above differences both PAN No.ARIPK4069N (Ashok Kumar) issued to me on June 2006 year. And second AJAY KUMAR re-issued on September 2014, and as such I am feeling very much tension in my mind as I have to fill the Taxes and the other legal deposits like Income Tax etc..

    Every month R5000 is deducted towards EPF from my salary. Of this, R2500 is the employer’s contribution. I would like to know whether the employer’s contribution is covered under 80C deductions for income tax. My employer says that only employee contributions can be claimed under 80C. Is this true?

      Dear Amit

      I don’t think that any body in PF office can dare to gulp your hard money till you are not having sufficient proof such as annaul PF Receipt , if not , might be a chances company in which you were working , deducting PF from your salary , could not deposit with the department. If both the above situation found correct there is no chance to loose your money.

  72. M D Nagda says:

    An American citizen of Indian origin based in California, founded an American Company which has a branch in India (not a public limited company). He employed his uncle, ie, his fathers brother who is a doctor, on a retainer for professional medical services (after the uncle retired from salaried employment of another company) in India, in the early 2000s until late 2009. His uncle is now 87 years old and retired, is an Indian citizen living here, and files his returns.
    American citizen first gifted his uncle stock options in the company in 2005 and 2008. Then, he made an outright gift of common stock to his uncle in 2011, 2013 and the last one in October 2014 for which there are stock certificates. Meanwhile, in 2009, the uncle had left the services of the company. These shares were never disclosed in the IT returns which were filed every year.
    As it happened, the company was sold to another international company in April 2015. The first installment was paid out to the uncle in May 2015 after signing various documents. Proceeds of transfer of stocks are to be received in installments.
    Given that the uncle had not disclosed any of the Stocks / shares received, in the IT Returns as assets held outside India in any of the years, and did not pay tax on it –
    – Now, that the stocks are transferred and proceeds are received in installments from May 2015, should he pay advance tax on short term capital gains on sale of stocks for A.Y.2016-17 and disclose these in the regular IT Return for A.Y.2016-17 or should he file these under the new ‘Undisclosed foreign asset Bill’ and pay capital gains tax plus the penalty?
    – If he must file it under the new bill, does that apply to the last lot of shares received in October 2014?
    – The second installment comes in Feb 2016 and 2 or 3 more installments held in escrow account in late 2016. Should he pay tax on what is due in 2016 only or on the whole amount?

    We have just signed State Bank Statutory branch audit report. All Reports were prepared in bank computers. Our rubber stamps are also lying with the branch head as the work was completed in late night hours. They assured us that they will provide us one complete set for our office record after arranging all documents;

    Now the Head office of the bank is requiring soft copies of the reports from us. WE requested the branch officials but they postponed the matter. Now they are not connecting.

    We want to know auditors rights after signing the audit report. Auditor is in office until AGM. Auditor has a right to attend the AGM and be heard. Whether same applies to branch auditors;

    We do not want to request them any further. Please tell us our powers and rights, so that they recognize our presence and not avoid us;

    Dear Sir, I have FD’s in my spouses name and this year TDS was deducted as interest crossed 10k and it reflects in her 26AS. As she doesn’t have any other source of income and I included her income as part of my return (clubbing). Will ITR2 form allow me to include her TDS deduction in my return or I need to pay total tax as a part of my return. And in that case, how I can claim TDS which is deducted on my spouse name?

The basic amount was been shown since 30 yrs. Rs.115000/-in HUF Balance sheet (assets side). Since 30 yrs. no provision of interest was made on that litigation amount.

Are there any investment plans to save the entire amount from taxation. kindly guide me.

    While filling up ITR5 in case of partnership firm we normally fillup profit and loss account showing all the turnover and expenses depreciation etc and profit is worked out as profit before allowing interest and remuneration to partners and in Schedule BP we deduct allowable interest and remuneration amount from column no. 31 as any other amount allowable as deduction and finally taxable income of firm is worked out. But now I have received notice u/s. 139(9) pointing out that deduction shown on account of interest and remuneration at column no. 31 of Schedule BP is not correct and needs rectification, kindly advise me from where which column i have to deduction interest and remuneration out of profit of firm.

    Respected Sir,

    In individual account can previous year’s short term losses on Equity shares and/or Equity Mutual Funds; we set off against short term gain on sold of property in current year….?


    in the case of a partner of a professional firm, if his total incomes consists of only share of profit from firm, interest & salary from firm, whether Sec. 207 & 209 relating to payment of advace tax is applicable to the partner? Because, the partner’s current income would entirely depend on the book-profit of the firm which will be derived only on 31st march end every year. How can the partner estimate his current income if he is not able & cannot estimate firm’s book-profit for the current year. Please clarify. Also, interest and salry to partners will be at sole discretion of the firm and the partner will be uncertain about its accrual at the year end.

    Dear Sir,
    I am working in an autonomous body of Govt. of India. I have joined service on 16th January 2013. After my training period of 1 year, i took charge as Assistant Engineer. My NPS account was opened after my confirmation and I have paid Rs.53491 for FY 2014-15 and an arrears of Rs.51214 for FY 2013-14 towards NPS i.e. I have paid a total of Rs.104705 towards NPS in this FY only. Same amount is contributed by the organisation.

    The problem is they added the total amount i.e., Rs.104705 to my gross but are deducting only Rs.53491 and saying that I have to pay tax for remaining Rs.51214. Many of my colleagues who joined with me are facing the similar problem. Please clarify on this issue & suggest if there is any section for exempting the arrears. Please reply as soon as possible.

    My query is that this amount will come under other income and submit ITR-1 or will be treat as long term capital gain and submit ITR-2.

    If it will come under LTCG then in which manner I will pay tax and what is correct?
    1)When I include in my total income I come under 20% tax slab
    2) or I should exclude it from total income and calculate tax separately on salary and on redemption amount 10% or 20% (with indexation).

    your guidelines are deeply required. Plz..

    Hi Taxguru,

    I am Avishek Saha, a salaried person. I need your guidance on my IT return problem.

    On AY13-14, I didn’t have any taxable income. Thus I didn’t submit IT return.

    On AY14-15, I have taxable income and I filled IT return in online.

    But the problem is while submitting ITRV form in online, by mistake I have chosen AY13-14 instead of AY14-15. and I have submitted my current year income wrongly with AY13-14.

    From CPC, Bangalore, they have sent me an order to pay a huge amount which include Tax, interest (234A,234B,234).

    I have submitted a revised ITR for AY13-14 as well as a Rectification. However I have received response of the rectification with same amount. Revision status is in progress.

    I need your guidance in this regards, otherwise I need to pay a huge amount unnecessary while there was no taxable income on AY13-14.

    Dear Sir

    We are hiring manpower through an outsourcing agency @ 7% Commission. We are paying the commission on the sum total of Basic salary + Employer contribution to EPF & ESI. We are paying the Service Tax on the total bill amount (incl.Commission). My doubt is on the following 2 points

    1. Whether the commission to the agency is to be paid only on the Basic salary or including the contribution of EPF & ESI

    2. Whether the S.Tax is to be paid on the total bill amount or only on the Basic salary amount.

    Kindly clarify.

  153. anup says:

    Traces is calculating Interest u/s 201(1A) on a wrong footing. Section 210(1A) states as under :

    “(1A) Without prejudice to the provisions of sub-section (1), if any such person, principal officer or company as is referred to in that sub-section does not deduct the whole or any part of the tax or after deducting fails to pay the tax as required by or under this Act, he or it shall be liable to pay simple interest, –

    (i) at one per cent for every month or part of a month on the amount of such tax from the date on which such tax was deductible to the date on which such tax is deducted; and

    (ii) at one and one-half per cent for every month or part of a month on the amount of such tax from the date on which such tax was deducted to the date on which such tax is actually paid.

    It is clear from Sec 201(1A)(ii) that the interest should be calculated from the date of deduction to the date of payment and it is to be converted to months, e,g, if delay is for less than 30 days (a month) even 1 day 1 month interest and if it is more than 30 days but less than 60 days : 2 months and so on.

    The Traces is calculating interest on month to month basis. E.g. even if TDS was deducted on 31.05.13 and paid on 08.06.13 (due date is 07.06.13), interest is being charged for 2 months instead of 1 month as per statute.

    Had the intention of the Statute had been to demand tax on monthly basis, the wording should have been “from the month in which such tax was deducted to the month in which such tax is actually paid”.

    I am a practicing C.A. I have a client whose status is a society. It has been running educational institution and the gross receipts exceed rupees one crore for the past several years. It has no 12A registration. It has not filed income tax return right from its inception. Now I wish to file the return for the A.Y. 2012 – 13 and 2013-14. In this background I wish to know what is the appropriate form ITR 5 or ITR 7? If it is ITR 5, under what head income has to be offerred? whether business/other soources? If it is business the provisions of sec.44AB would apply. To avoid it I would opt for income from other sources head. Here my query is since our client is maintaining regular books u/s 44AA, whether P&L a/c and B/S are required to be filled in the ITR? Once I fill the P&L a/c, the question of applicability of 44AB would arise. Can I fill income from other sources head directly by showing gross fees and claiming deductions u/s 56 without feeding the p&l and b/s in the ITR? Or shall I fill the P&L and B/S and and nullify the amount shown( i.e. net profit as per P&L a/c.)under the head income from business by filling the relevant colums such as considered under other heads of income (i.e. income from other sources)? In such a case can I avoid attracting the provisions of sec 44AB?

    Dear Santosh,

    In order to get the tax benefit on account of losses incurred for the current year you have to do the following..

    a. File current year income tax return within the due date of filing the return by showing your losses.

    b. File the income tax return of the next year and claim set off of previous years losses.

    This will help you to save taxes on the next year.

  162. Praveen says:

    Dear Santosh

    You can avail a tax benefit, but before that make sure that you have filed your Income Tax returns within due date specified U/s. 139. Income Tax Act specifies that the assessee should file the return within specified date, so you can carry forward your losses to next year and can be claimed under same head. I mean
    In case of business loss in current year, same loss can be carried forward to next year and can be claimed with profit from business in next year. (to claim such loss return should be filed within specified timelimit mentioned in Act)

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Sub: Request to notify the e-return changes in advance and extend due date

    We would like to compliment the Income Tax Department for introducing e-filing of 3CD report and other e-initiatives. However, we would like to bring to your kind attention the difficulties being faced by us while e-filing due to the constant changes in the Department e-return software without any prior notice. We will come to know of the changes only when we get an error message as ‘Invalid xml’ while uploading the returns. As we take the consent of assessees’ and keep ready the returns to file, it creates a lot of problems to re-prepare the returns as per the latest schema.
    At this juncture, we would like to bring to your notice the practice followed by NSDL in the case of e TDS returns. NSDL notifies the new schema in their website at least 7 to 30 days in advance before blocking the acceptance of TDS e-returns prepared in old format. If this best practice is followed by the Income Tax e-filing website also, then it will surely avoid the difficulties which we are facing now.
    As per the new 3CD e-filing procedure, we need take up the following actions for each Assessees;

     Digital signature of Assessees and CA has to be obtained
     Digital signatures have to be registered in IT Dept. website
     CA registration in IT Dept. website
     Registered CA has to be added in Assessees’ list of CAs
     Preparation of Tax audit report
     Audited financial accounts have to be signed and scanned for uploading
     Valid e-report has to be uploaded
     Work list approval by the Assessee
    Therefore, e-fling requires a lot of attention and it is time consuming. Therefore, in case of any further changes in your e-return software kindly provide reasonable time-gap before blocking the acceptance of e-returns prepared in old format.

    As this is the first year of implementation of 3CD e-return, we are facing a lot of hardship and difficulties. We are under tremendous pressure to do and re-do the same thing due to changes in the schema. Due to frequent changes in schema and additional workload, we are unable to complete our audits within the due date. By your order dated 26-Sept-13, the due date for filing e-report is extended. However, due date to complete the audit has not been extended. Under the circumstances, we request you to extend the due date of filing returns for the Assessment Year 2013-14 by two months.

    Please look into this matter and take positive action at the earliest.

    Hon’ble Finance Minister,
    Govt. of India, North Block,
    NEW DELHI-110001.
    Hon’ble Sir,
    Sub: Return filing for Asst. Year 2013-14 under section 44AB
    And problem of wrong adjustment made by CPC- Reg
    -0- We are sorry to note that the department has not following the direction so the Hon’Delhi High Court in rectifying the mistakes and wrong adjustments made by the CPC without following any procedures laid down under the Income Tax Act itself. The local jurisdictional income tax officers are not caring for even genuine problems of the assesses whenever the returns are e-filed and many officers are advising us to file the hard copy and not to use the e-filing facility to reduce the problems of the CPC and to get the rectifications done on a faster mode. Just to get the rectification done by the CPC one has to follow un-necessary procedures and correspondence and e-filing of the rectification application etc., which an ordinary assessee cannot follow all these and the department can easily eat the fruits of its wrong things without any natural justice. The Board is not taking any hard steps for easy and early rectifications and in between the assessee and representatives are suffering because of this. The Board knows very well that the returns of income for the assessment year 2013-14 will be filed after 1/04/2013,but every year it will not notify the forms and the e-filing facility will not be opened will June or July and it is practical experience of all who are depending on e-filing facility. Now a days the Banks and other financial institutions will ask for the copy of the IIR V and one has to answer that the department has not started accepting the returns for 2013-14.Is it not a shame on part of the department?
    The amendment to 44AB and raising the limit to One Crore has not effected on the small assessee as due to strict introduction of the VAT by all the State Governments the turnover of even a small of the smallest trader has increased because of input tax mechanism, and the Central Government knows it very well and under the circumstances the limit for 44AB would have been kept at 5 Crore and individual assessee should be kept out of the preview of the 44AB. The Central Government is thinking of introducing GST and if the same happens the turnover of all the traders will increase by two fold. This fact should be kept in mind before fixing the 44AB audit turnover limits. The law of 44AB is like “law without justice”. Lewis Carroll in Alice in Wonderland says : “ ‘I’ll be judge, I’ll be jury said cunning old Fury I’ll try the whole cause, and condemn you to death”
    The history of the 44AB audit has shown that the same has not resulted in any quality increase in the collection of the revenue nor has deducted any huge block money or irregularities of the assessee nor has reduced the work of the department. Even where the 44AB audit has been done by a CA the Department has disallowed the climes of the assessee while passing order u/s 143(3).Even it has not helped the department to increase the tax base and it remains at the same level as expressed by the Hon’Finance Minister in the Parliament itself. This is because of the complexity in tax laws in the name of simplicity. Here we have to quote Sri Nani A Palkhivala from his preface to the Eight Edition of Income Tax, By, Kanga and Palkhivala:
    “Today the Income Tax Act 1961 is a national disgrace. There is no other instance in Indian jurisprudence of an Act mutilated by more than 3300 amendments in less than thirty years. Simple provisions like Section 11 to 13 (which deals with exemption of the income of charitable trusts) have suffered no less than fifty amendments.
    The tragedy of India is the tragedy of waste-waste of national time, energy and manpower. Tens of millions of man-hours, crammed with intelligence & knowledge of tax-gatherers, taxpayers and tax advisers- are squandered every year in grappling with the torrential spate of mindless amendments. The feverish activity achieves no more good than a fever.
    Our law reports bear witness to the fact that generally a case reaches hearing in the High Court in twenty years and in the Supreme Court in thirty years, after the relevant assessment year. The situation is continuously aggravated by the deluge of new amendments – the indigestible verbiage; and the flood of litigation is heavier today than ever before”
    In the same book mentioning about the object of tax policy:-
    “Two things strike the student of Indian income-tax with trepidation and amazement- the precipitate and chronic tinkering with the law by bureaucrats who are the unacknowledged legislators of India, and the anaesthetized patience of the Indian public .Truly, we Indians area “low arousal” people. We endure injustice and unfairness with feudalistic servility and fatalistic resignation. The poor of India endure inhuman conditions which would lead to a bloody resolution in any other country. The rich endure foolish laws and maddening amendments which benefit none circumvent the law than to fight for its repeal.
    Taxes are the lifeblood of any government, but it cannot b e over emphasized that the blood is taken from the arteries of the taxpayers and therefore, the transfusion has to be accomplished in accordance with the principles of justice and fair play.
    Every government has a right to levy taxes. But no government has the right in the process of extracting tax, to cause misery and harassment to the tax payer and the gnawing feeling that he is made the victim of palpable injustice”.
    If we see the present tax policies and the working of the CPC and the administration of TDS and TCS shows how carelessly the tax policies are framed and administered by the Government.
    Specially in Karnataka this year the availability of CA’s for the 44AB audit is doubtful as the Department of Co-Op Audit has allotted all the audit work of the co-operative societies to the CA’s and most of them have been allotted more than 50 to 65 societies and the limit for the audit as fixed by the ICAI is only 40.Under the circumstances the Board should think now itself to reconsider the limit of 44AB audit or it should be made applicable only for Corporate Sector and keeping away the individual assessees from the ambit of 44AB audit. To know more details about this kindly logon to and link where you can see for yourself that how the limit for 44AB audit will work out for the assessment year 2013-14. The voluntary compliance of returns will come down if these restrictions are put for filing the returns of income. The tax collection process should be smooth.
    We request the Finance Minister to consider the facts and circumstances under which we are requesting for the amendment to 44AB or increasing the limits of the 44AB or restrict the 44AB to the corporate sector or where the public money is involved. And further we would like to remind your good self “What is the argument on the other side? Only this that no case has been found in which it has been done before. That argument does not appeal to me in the least. If we never do anything which has not been done before, we shall never get anywhere. The law will stand still whilst the rest of the world goes on; and that will be bad for both” (Denning L.J).

    1. In many case , the matters before the Hon’ble ITAT are restored to the files of Commissioner of Income Tax [Appeal] Such matters are not taken up for hearing for years together by the concerned CIT[A] . The law does not permit to direct the CIT[A] to take up the matter restored to him in reasonable time and matters remain pending for long. It is appreciated that when very complicated legal issues are involved, the ld CIT[A] may take time to study the legal / factual position , but the hearing of the case must be taken in reasonable time by the ld CIT[A] . Even the rewritten communications to CIT[A] for early fixation of the appeal fail to bring any result . The writ in court of law is expensive exercise and not possible to be taken up by all persons . Is there any remedial measures ? whether approach to CCIT or CBDT useful ? Even these authorities are not permitted in law to direct the ld CIT{A} for deciding the appeals within time frame . Any other suggestion / guidance shall be appreciated.

    2. Where appeal filing fees to ITAT is paid in excess of the required amount of fees payable , how the excess amount is to be claimed back ? The registry office suggests that only the assessing officer is entitled to grant refund. The assessing officer advises such collections are not reflected in his Demand / collection register > suggestion / guidance for claiming the refund shall be appreciated.

    11-9-2012 10.00am.

    My wife is a Singapore citizen and resides in Singapore since last fifty years, visiting India once a year, at most for 15days. Years passby without going to India.

    She has inherited ancesteral property in India, and sold all the properties realising losses(due to indexing calculations as the properties were inherited in 1971) in most of them except one, which leads to the question tht I am asking answers to.

    1.She has been assessed in Singapore from the time she became Singapore Citizen in 1980/81. She has been a housewife and had no income and as advised by the government, people with no income need not file returns, and she stopped filing from the time of the announcement.

    2. When she sold the properties in India 2009,2010,2011 she filed returns in India(has Indian residence address but as above stated doesnt visit India and when she does is not more than a fortnight in any one year) and none in Singapore as propeprty sales resulted in Lossess (no income)

    3. The last property sold in 2012 (Sale Deed registered in August 2012) resulted in substantial profit.

    4. Being a Singapore citizen, no tax is payable on Long Term Capital Gains in Singapore. When approach was made to Singapore Tax authorities , was advised as there is no Capital Gains tax in Singapore, she need not file any return.

    5. The properties being in India, attract Indian Tax on Long term Capital Gains 20% Tax. Sale proceeds have been remitted from India to Singapore through Banks and applications as required by the Reserve Bank India were submitted to the remitting bank who than remitted the proceeds. (Form and application for remittance under U/S 195 of the Income tax act –Annexure A, B Certificate, Form A2, Purpose of remittance form etc as required were submitted.

    6.Now the returns have to be filed in July/August 2013, and the question of advance tax/deduction arises.

    7.MY QUESTION IS, Is she liable for Indian Tax as a Singaproe citizen not residing in India for more than 15days in any given year. Singapore authorities say that as there is no Capital Gains Tax in Singapore, there can be no claim or set off or even the necessity of filing return in Singapore.

    Please give clarity and advise.

    I have submitted my Income Tax Return and form 16 to Income Tax Office Tambaram. Acknowledgement Receipt Number: 114523, Date: 04-08-2010

    They have sent the refund to my old address, and the same is returned to the tambaram office on 09-01-2012. For this i have attached online statement.

    And then i have submitted a request letter with my current address proof to tambaram office on 27-03-2012. I waited for some time with no response from the income tax office.

    After that i have sent a complaint to IT Ombudsman on 21-05-2012, For this i got a reply from Ombudsman on 28-05-2012 stating that i have to make a complaint to Joint Commissioner of Income Tax, Tambaram.

    After that i have submitted a written complaint to Joint Commissioner of Income Tax, Salary Range, Ward I-(1) on 13th of June 2012.

    Waited for a month with no response or reply or TDS refund, So Again i wrote a complaint to IT Ombudsman requesting for TDS refund.

    Answers i would like to know from you now

    1. Will the Ombudsman take my case this time, is there any chance to reject my complaint now, since i have approached him for the same reason before.

    2. If he rejects what should i do next?

    3. In my last letter to Ombudsman i didn’t mentioned that i need refund amount with interest. Will they send the refund with interest? If yes, then at what rate of Interest?

    4. I have mentioned that refund it directly to my account, and also provided my account details, can they send it directly to my account or not?

    Thanks in advance, i would like to know answers, please reply.

    Title : 
    Is it possible to receive a huge amount from my foreign friend in my SBI bank a/c for real estate investment?

    Main Query:
    I am establishing partnership firm in India, it’s between me and my foreign friend who is Canadian citizen, we will deal in real estate in buying, selling, developing townships etc.
    In partnership firm, the taxes are 30% as we all know, remaining will be distributed among both of us.
    On the other hand, Because of trust factor and finding some investors for my foreign partner for their business we have reached to this level where my partner is even ready to transfer the amount in my personal bank account so no 30% taxes will be given in case if we buy property through my name using the money which w’d come in my personal account rather buying through firm name. We also know that foreigners can’t buy Property in India on their names so my partner is even ready if I buy property on my name. 
    So is it possible that i receive huge amount in my own SBI bank account so major properties can be buy using my name and rest in partnership firm name, at time of giving back the profit to my partner, i use my own bank account to transfer the funds to my partner so 30% taxes will be given only on those properties what w’d have been bought using firm name, 
    what documents can i show to the income tax department at time of receiving the huge amount from my partner and sending the profit money to my partner at the time of selling the properties?
    Can i show my partnership deed not only just for the prove of firm existence BUT also at the time of doing transaction from personal account, to prove we are genuine and doing these transactions for business purposes.
    Partnership deed has got all partnership clauses, also included my name, my partner name, Addresses and signature of both.
    Also, my real brother is NRI who is in Qatar (I am not NRI) who also has SBI NRI account, w’d it be ok to use his NRI account for receiving and sending money for my business transactions AND showing the same partnership deed which is on the stamp paper in case if i or my brother w’d be questioned, but problem is, NRI account belongs to my brother and partnership deed is between me and my foreign friend, Please suggest what to do?
    Looking forward to see reply, Thank you.
