No tax on income from overseas operations:SC
January, 09th 2007
In a significant judgement, the Supreme Court has ruled that only the income earned by foreign firms from their operations in India is taxable and that no tax can be levied on work done outside the country. 
 
Only such part of the income, as is attributable to the operations carried out in India, can be taxed in India, a Division Bench of Justice SB Sinha and Justice Dalveer Bhandari said. 
 
The judgement came on an appeal filed by a Japanese engineering firm, Ishikawajma-Harima Heavy Industries Ltd (IHHIL), challenging the decision of the Authority for Advance Rulings (Income Tax), that had asked it to pay taxes. 
 
The company had formed a consortium with Ballast Nedam International BV, Itochu Corporation, Mitsui & Co Ltd, Toyo Engineering Corporation and Toya Engineering (India) Ltd for setting up an LNG plant at Dahej in Gujarat on a turnkey basis in 2001. 
 
The contract involved offshore and onshore supply and services and construction of storage tanks. 
 
The apex court ruled that since all parts of the transaction were carried out outside India, it could not have been taxed in the country. 
 
The fact that the contract was signed in India was of no consequence as all activities of offshore supply were outside India, it said and added that the income-tax authority made a mistake. 
 
The company had argued it was not liable to pay tax as India had a Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement with Japan and it did not receive any income for offshore supply and services in India. 
 
The turnkey project would not mean that the entire contract must be considered to be an integrated one so as to make the Japanese company pay tax in India, the judges said. 
 
According to the contract, while prices for offshore and onshore supply and services were paid in dollars, the construction and erection was partly to be paid in dollars and partly in Indian rupees.
