New Delhi, June 15 (IANS) The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) on Thursday invited public opinion on the special provisions introduced for foreign companies said to be resident in India on account of Place of Effective Management (PoEM).
According to the special provision: “The central government may notify exception, modification and adaptation subject to which, provisions of the Act relating to computation of total income, treatment of unabsorbed depreciation, set off or carry forward and set off of losses, collection and recovery and special provisions relating to avoidance of tax shall apply in a case where a foreign company is said to be resident in India due to its PoEM being in India for the first time and the said company has never been resident in India before.”
The Finance Act, 2016, had introduced the special provision in the Income Tax Act with effect from April 1 this year.
“It has been further provided that these transitional provisions would also cover any subsequent previous year up to the date of determination of PoEM in an assessment proceeding,” CBDT said here in a statement.
