ents presented before me, I find that the appellant s business arrangement with its foreign subsidiaries can be categorised into the following two revenue sharing models: Model 1- In this model, the agreement are executed between the appellant and the overseas customers.

nue. In both the above two models the appellant undertakes and assumes significant and analogous functions and risks and consequently undertakes full responsibility for the delivery of all IT development services to a customer.

In my view, base upon the documents submitted by the appellant and the arguments put forward before me, under either of the two situations, the functional, asset and risk profiles of 12A and 12B remain the same and the major risks relatable to bad debt and delivery failure/nonperformance, always remain with the appe .....

e, the functional and risk profile of 12A and 12B remain the same under either of the two models, namely even where the customers enter into the contracts directly with the appellant, the same remuneration model of 25% revenue sharing should also apply in such business scenario. I cannot agree with the TPO s arbitrary fixation of the remuneration model of 13% /15% revenue sharing in the later scenario, namely whether the customers enter into contracts directly with the appellant, since the same .....
