Explanation: For the removal of doubts, it is hereby clarified that excess money of part thereof may be repatriated from any of the associated enterprise of the assessee which is not a resident in India.

(2A) Without prejudice to the provisions of sub section (2), where the excess money of part thereof has not been repatriated within prescribed time, the assessee may, at his option, pay additional income tax at the rate of eighteen percent on such excess money of part thereof, as the case may be.

(2B) The tax on the excess money or part thereof so paid by the assessee under sub section (2A) shall be treated as final payment of tax in respect of excess money of part thereof not repatriated and no further credit therefore shall be claimed by the assessee or by any other person in respect of the amount of tax so paid.

(2C) NO deduction under any other provisions of this Act shall be allowed to the assessee in respect of the amount on which tax has been paid in accordance with the provisions of sub section (2A).

(2D) Where the additional income tax referred to in sub section (2A) is paid by the assessee, he shall not be required to make secondary adjustment under sub section (1) and compute interest under sub section (2) from the date of payment of such tax.

(3) For the purposes of this section,

(ii) “arm’s length price” shall have the meaning assigned to it in clause (ii) of section 92F;

(v) “secondary adjustment” means an adjustment in the books of account of the assessee and its associated enterprise to reflect that the actual allocation of profits between the assessee and its associated enterprise are consistent with the transfer price determined as a result of primary adjustment, thereby removing the imbalance between cash account and actual profit of the assessee.]

In order to make the secondary adjustment regime more effective and easy to comply with, it is proposed to provide that:

I. the condition of threshold of one crore rupees and of the primary adjustment made upto assessment year 2016-17 are alternate conditions.

II. the assessee shall be required to calculate interest on the excess money or part thereof.

III. the provision of this section shall apply to the agreements which have been signed on or after 1st April, 2017; however, no refund of the taxes already paid till date under the pre amended section would be allowed.

IV. the excess money may be repatriated from any of the associated enterprises of the assessee which is not resident in India even if such AE is not the party to the international transaction resulting in primary adjustment.

The above said amendments would take effect retrospectively i.e. from Financial Year 2017-18 and onwards.

Further, proposed amendments provide an option to the assessee to pay additional tax in case where it is impracticable or impermissible to repatriate the excess money.

I. In a case where the excess money or part thereof has not been repatriated in time, the assessee will have the option to pay additional income-tax at the rate of 18% on such excess money or part thereof in addition to the existing requirement of calculation of interest till the date of payment of this additional tax. The additional tax is proposed to be increased by a surcharge of 12%.

II. the tax so paid shall be the final payment of tax and no credit shall be allowed in respect of the amount of tax so paid;

III. the deduction in respect of the amount on which such tax has been paid , shall not be allowed under any other provision of this Act; and

IV. if the assessee pays the additional income-tax, he will not be required to make secondary adjustment or compute interest from the date of payment of such tax.

This amendment would take effect from 1st September, 2019.

My Comments:

To simplify the applicability of the provisions related to secondary adjustment and further providing an option to the assessee to pay additional tax (which is one time levy) in case where it is impracticable or impermissible to repatriate the excess money is somewhere a good move. It enables the assessee to bring certainty to pending tax matters.

My Comments:

This amendment clarificatory in nature and now the power of Assessing Officer is limited to only pass an order modifying the total income of the assessee consequent to filing of modified return of income in pursuance of to APA.

Therefore, now the Assessing Officer does not have any power to assess, reassess or recomputed the total income of the assessee.
