TP Adjustment - determination of ALP in respect of software development services - comparable selection - HELD THAT:- In the case on hand, it could be seen from the order of the learned TPO that the learned TPO accepted the turnover filter selected by the assessee with companies, whose net sales are more than Rs. 1 crore, but failed to notice that without fixing the upper limit of such filter, it would lead to the insertion of certain entities, who operate on different scales and economies and render themselves as unsuitable for comparison. Though we agree with the counsel that certain comparables have to be deleted for their operation in relation with the assessee’s operation is huge in scale and economies
We direct the learned Assessing Officer/learned TPO to take the range of turnover filter at ten times on both the ends and conduct search afresh to take a plausible view. These grounds are accordingly treated as allowed for statistical purposes.
ALP adjustment in respect of the interest on trade receivables - We are of the considered opinion that the ends of justice would be met by accepting the interest rate on similar foreign currency receivables/advances as LIBOR+200 points. We direct the learned Assessing Officer/learned TPO to adopt the same. Grounds are partly allowed accordingly.
