(3) For the purposes of this section,-

(i) “associated enterprise” shall have the meaning assigned to it in sub-section (1) and sub-section (2) of section 92A;

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

(iii) “excess money” means the difference between the arm’s length price determined in primary adjustment and the price at which the international transaction has actually been undertaken;

(iv) “primary adjustment” to a transfer price means the determination of transfer price in accordance with the arm’s length principle resulting in an increase in the total income or reduction in the loss, as the case may be, of the assessee;

(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.’.

 



 

Notes on Clauses:

Clause 42 of the Bill seeks to insert a new section 92CE in the Income-tax Act relating to secondary adjustments in certain cases.

The proposed new section 92CE provides that a secondary adjustment shall be made where a primary adjustment to transfer price, has been made suo motu by the assessee in his return of income; or made by the Assessing Officer has been accepted by the assessee; or is determined by an advance pricing agreement entered into by the assessee under section 92CC; or is made as per the safe harbour rules framed under section 92CB; or is arising as a result of resolution of an assessment by way of the mutual agreement procedure under an agreement entered into under section 90 or 90A for avoiding double taxation.

It is further proposed to provide that where as a result of primary adjustment to the transfer price, there is an increase in the total income or reduction in the loss, as the case may be, of the assessee, the excess money which is available with its associated enterprise, if not repatriated to India within the time as may be prescribed, shall be deemed to be an advance made by the assessee to such associated enterprise and the interest on such advance, shall be computed in such manner as may be prescribed.

It is also proposed to provide that the provisions of this section shall apply, if, the amount of primary adjustment made in case of the assessee in any previous year, exceeds one crore rupees.

It is also proposed to provide that the provisions of this section shall not apply to such assessees in whose case the primary adjustment is made in respect of an assessment year commencing on or before 1st April, 2016.

It is also proposed to define the term "associate enterprise", "arm's length price", "excess money", "primary adjustment" and "secondary adjustment".

These amendments will take effect from 1st April, 2018 and will, accordingly, apply in relation to the assessment year 2018-2019 and subsequent years.
