NEWS-BRIEF


F IT Department inquiry leads to six TPAs pay backlog as TDS

The Income-tax Department has sent notices to six Mumbai-based third party administrators (TPAs), who process insurance claims, asking them to cough up Rs. 117 crore for two consecutive financial years, beginning 2008-09.

Confirming the development, an I-T official in Mumbai said the Department raised the demand after conducting a survey, which revealed that none of the TPAs had deducted tax (TDS) while making payment to hospitals. In Mumbai, the tax liability of six TPAs ranged from Rs. 3 crores to Rs. 69 crores each.

He said Chief Commissioners in other cities might also follow suit the Mumbai division as tax outstanding of 27 TPAs operating in the country could be over Rs. 500 crores.

TPAs handle the task traditionally handled by the companies providing insurance to its employees. They make payment from its own float funds to hospitals on behalf of the policyholders. The insurance companies reimburse them later and also pay them a commission of 5 per cent. of the health insurance premium.

The association has moved the Bombay High Court after its members received the I-T notices. In the writ petition filed with the High Court, TPAs said they do not pay the hospitals to fulfil their own personal liabilities and responsibilities. The payment is meant at discharging the primary liability of the insurance companies, TPAs claimed. The association had also challenged the previous I-T demand at the Delhi High Court.

The Karnataka High Court, in a recent judgment, had observed that the TPAs were obligated to deduct TDS as they were paying hospitals. The court had also observed that the critical factor in deciding this issue was the fact that the agreement for paying to the hospitals was between a TPA and a hospital.

F Special panels set to cover up MNCs' tax rows

Multinational companies can now look forward to expeditiously settling their tax disputes in India. The Central Board of Direct Taxes has announced the new rules for creation of special dispute resolution panels (DRP) that will allow foreign taxpayers to sort out their tax disputes in a faster and cost effective manner.

However, the new mechanism could be resorted to by a foreign company only if it has a dispute with tax authorities regarding transfer pricing, that refers to tax disputes pertaining to pricing of tangible and non-tangible assets transferred within an organisation.

A foreign company facing a dispute pertaining to corporate tax in India along with a transfer pricing would also be able to avail this window. There would be eight DRPs across the country in eight metros including Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Pune and Hyderabad. India had introduced transfer pricing rules in 2001. Tax experts say that the new DRP would not just ensure resolution of issues swiftly but also help in bringing down litigation related to transfer pricing.

MNC taxpayers would be allowed to go through the draft assessment order specifying their tax liability, before it is finally handed out unlike the present practice of handing out the order without giving taxpayer any such opportunity.

Taxpayer, will have 30 days to come back to the panel with objections and get the order amended. And, even if the order is passed by the panel, taxpayer would be allowed to appeal against the decision.
