Transfer Pricing - BE IN THE KNOW


TOPIC SPECIFIED DOMESTIC TRANSACTIONS
Specified Domestic Transactions
The aim behind introducing transfer pricing provisions was to curb tax evasion i.e. tax international transactions on their real value. This however left
a vacuum for similar transactions that are domestic but do not portray correct taxable value (as in the case of international transactions). The urge to
include certain specific transactions within the ambit of transfer pricing provisions was expressed by the Honble SC in the case of CIT Vs. Glaxo
SmithKline Asia. The Finance Act, 2012 introduced a new section 92BA by which the provisions of chapter X of the Act were extended to Specified
Domestic Transactions (SDT). The term Specified domestic transactions as defined under section 92BA of the Act, means any of the following
transaction not being an International Transaction.

In case of the transactions listed above, the aggregate value of such transactions entered into by the assessee in the previous year should exceed a sum
of Rupees Twenty crore (w.e.f assessment year 2016-2017)
Conditions to qualify as SDT (all the conditions need to be fulfilled)

The transaction should fall within the category of any one of the transactions listed above
The transaction is not an International Transaction
The aggregate value of transactions entered into by the assessee in the previous year

file Form 3CEB certified by a chartered accountant. The due date for filing form 3CEB is 30th November of the relevant
assessment year.

Conclusion
Inclusion of SDT within the purview of Transfer Pricing Regulations is a step towards expanding its scope. The domestic transfer pricing regulations
are applicable from assessment year 2013-2014. All of the compliance requirements relating to transfer pricing documentation, accountants report, etc.
shall equally apply to SDT as they do for international transactions amongst associated enterprises.
