In Re : The Regents of the University of California UCLA Anderson School of Management Executive Education, USA

Income chargeable to tax in India as ‘fees for included services’ - Program Fee received - India-US DTAA - PE in India - Held that:- The activity of the applicant cannot be said to be a business activity particularly because the applicant is registered in USA as a non-profit public benefit corporation formed for the purpose of providing education.

On this ground also there cannot be any fixed place of business on the part of the applicant. Therefore, on both the counts namely on the question of business and on the question of PE, the contention of the Revenue is unacceptable to us. - The program fee is held to be non-taxable as there is no Permanent Establishment of the applicant in India. - A.A.R. No 1656 of 2014 - D .....

ia. It is also clarified that relationship between the applicant and Northwest would be neither of independent contractor nor a joint venture nor would it be of the nature of employment agency or partnership. The applicant has raised questions regarding the taxability of the consideration that the applicant earns from Northwest for holding these educational programs. 3.

lishment ( PE ) of the Applicant in India in terms of Article 5 of the India-US Double Tax Avoidance Agreement? 4. As per the Revenue s version, they do not seem to have a serious objection to the fact that the activity of the applicant is an educational activity and is directly covered under Article 12(5)(C) of the of the Treaty between India and USA. 5. The Revenue however, objects and contends that this amounts to business within the meaning of Article 7 of the Treaty and the applicant has a .....

rate Royalty particularly because of the provision of Article 12(5)(C). The question regarding PE had propped up in that application also on which we took a view that the applicant in that case could not be said to have a PE, particularly in view of the earlier Ruling of this Authority in AAR No.1037 of 2011 dated 20th September,2013 Eruditus Educational Private Limited Vs.

The reliance of Revenue, therefore, on Article 7 of the Treaty is completely uncalled for as Article 7 specifically deals with business income. 8. Similar is the case of the plea regarding the PE of the Applicant in India. Viewed from any angle there cannot be a PE as defined in Article 5 of the Treaty as indeed there is none in India.
