  • CII for the financial year 2012-13

    The Central Government notified the Cost Inflation Index (CII) for the financial year 2012-13, it is 852.

  • Tax Residency Certificate for foreign investors

    India has made it mandatory for all foreigners to furnish a tax residency certificate of their home country to claim benefits under the double taxation avoidance agreement. This will make the process of claiming tax credit easier for foreigners by removing the arbitrariness in the earlier regime. The Central Board of Direct Taxes, has notified changes to the income tax act prescribing a tax residency certificate. All non residents are entitled to claim benefits under the domestic tax law or the relevant tax treaty to the extent it is more beneficial to them.

  • 5% TDS on borrowings in foreign currency

    In order to allow low cost foreign borrowings by Indian companies the Income Tax Act has been amended to lower the tax on such borrowings. The amendment to Section 115A and insertion of Section 194LC provide that the interest income of the non-resident investor will be taxed at a reduced rate of 5%instead of existing rate of 20%.

DIRECT TAXATION Index

Further the liability of Indian company to withhold tax on such income would also be at the reduced rate of 5%. This lower rate of taxation will apply to interest paid to a non-resident by an Indian company for money borrowed in foreign currency from a source outside India either under loan agreement or by way of long term infrastructure bonds. This is also subject to condition that the borrowing is made during the period 1st July 2012 to 30th June 2015 and such borrowing and the rate of interest are approved by the Central Government.

With a view to lower the compliance burden and reduce the time lag which would arise on account of case-by-case approval, the Central Government has decided to grant approval to all borrowings by way of loan agreement and long-term infrastructure bonds that satisfy certain conditions. No specific approval in such cases would be required. Broadly, borrowings under a loan agreement or by way of issue of long-term infrastructure bonds that comply with External Commercial Borrowings (ECB) regulations as administered by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) would be eligible for availing of the benefit of this concessional tax regime.
