Recently in the case of Krung Thai Bank PCL v. Jt Director of Income-tax – International Taxation (ITA No. 3390/Mum/2009) (Mum), the Mumbai bench of the Income-tax Appellate Tribunal (the Tribunal) held that the provisions of Section 11 5JB of the Income-tax Act, 1961 (the Act) pertaining to Minimum Alternate Tax (MAT) would come into play only when the tax payer is required to prepare its profit and loss account in accordance with the provisions of Part II and III of Schedule VI of the Companies Act. Further, since banking companies are not required to prepare their financial statements as per Schedule VI to the Companies Act in view of the exemption set out under proviso to Section 211 (2) of the Companies Act, the tribunal held that the provisions of Section 11 5JB of the Act cannot be applied to a banking company.
