Transfer pricing adjustment in regard to AMP expenses - Held that:- As decided in the assessee’s own case for assessment year 2011-12 [2017 (5) TMI 1351 - ITAT DELHI] it would be in the fitness of things if the impugned order is set aside and the matter is restored to file of TPO/AO for fresh determination of the question as to whether there exists an international transaction of AMP expenses. If the existence of such an international transaction is not proved, the matter would end there and then, calling for no transfer pricing addition. If on the other hand, the international transaction is found to be existing, then the TPO will determine the ALP of such an international transaction in the light of the relevant judgments of the Hon’ble High Court in Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications (India) Pvt.

As relates to benefit of deduction under Section 80IC the same was claimed only for the unit situated in Rudrapur (Uttrakhand). There is net loss in the units of Manessar (Haryana) & Chennai (Tamilnadu) and there is a net profit in Rudrapur Unit. The TPO has only disallowed this claim as the assessee was not involved in manufacture of any item covered by Schedule XIV, where as the assessee has referred Schedule XIII and submitted that it is not considered by the TPO. After verifying Schedule XIII & XIV it is pertinent to note that the assessee’s location at Rudrapur is coming under the scope of 80IC but the address was not properly verified by the TPO. Therefore, this needs to be verified. We therefore, remit this issue back to the file of the TPO to examine the same as relates to the applicability of the Schedule XIII.
