Vodafone has received a tax bill of Rs 3,700 crore from the Income Tax Department of India against the recent transfer pricing case.

Sunnyvale, CA 94085, U.S, December 26, 2013 - (PressReleasePoint) - Vodafone has received a tax bill of Rs 3,700 crore from the Income Tax Department of India against the recent transfer pricing case. This bill includes the unpaid dues and interest for the assessment year 2008-2009; however, it does not include any penalty. Vodafone has been given 30 days to pay up or appeal against the order.
This transfer pricing case against Vodafone relates to assessment year 2008-09 over the sale of shares of the local subsidiary to a Mauritius-based group company.

As per Vodafone, no tax is payable on this transaction and thus they will file an appeal before the tax appeal tribunal very soon.
Transfer pricing is the value at which associated entities are allowed to undertake transactions between them. Transactions taking place between group companies located in different countries are to be priced at “arm's length” or at the fair price as if the transaction was undertaken with an un-related company.

India has also recently formally introduced International Safe Harbor Rules (SHRs) to allow taxpayers transfer pricing certainty, reports Nair & Co.'s Global Transfer Pricing services team.

To learn more about the details outlined in India’s final SHRs read Nair & Co.’s previous press release.
